Italian and American astronomers discovered a large structure in the early Universe, formed just two billion years after the Big Bang.
Physicists still cannot tell what exactly the dark matter is, but now they know more about what it is not. It is not black hole.
Scientists have shown that water is likely to be a major component of planets orbiting other stars that are between two to four times the size of Earth.
Mexican astrophysicist Carlos Frenk Mora has identified some of the first galaxies in our universe together with a team of researchers.
WASHINGTON — An international team of astronomers found that Uranus was hit by a massive object roughly twice the size of Earth which caused the planet to tilt and came with its freezing temperatures, according to new research. The study published on Monday in the Astrophysical Journal confirmed a previous study which said that Uranus’ […]
We might be the only intelligent life in the universe, according to a recent study made by a team of professors from Oxford University.
An international team of astronomers has uncovered a startlingly dense concentration of 14 galaxies that are poised to merge, forging a galaxy cluster in the early universe.
An international team of astronomers found new evidences that a few ultraluminous X-ray (ULXs) sources, glowing with X-ray light equal to the total output at all wavelengths of millions of suns, are relatively small neutron stars.
A new theory about the origin of the moon has suggested that the moon was not spun out of the aftermath of a collision, but emerged from a seething, donut-shaped cloud of vaporized rock inside the Earth.
Two independent studies show that the biggest black holes in the universe are growing faster than the rate of stars being formed in their galaxies, meaning that at last the voracious black holes may disappear those massive galaxies.
