Meteorites represent leftovers of our Solar System’s formation, but only if at least some small parts of them reach the Earth’s surface. Space rocks that end up burning up completely in our atmosphere don’t qualify as meteorites; they are just ...

It’s possible that these fantastical creatures of physics have already been observed, as hypothetical bridges connecting disparate regions of space (and time) could look similar to regular old black holes. Nevertheless, there may still be a way to tell them ...

Finding a star in space is relatively easy since they emit a lot of light. They are practically illuminating the Cosmos. Stars are a lot easier to find compared to planets or, not to mention, black holes. But finding a ...

An undiscovered region of space called the “zone of avoidance” is the location of a galaxy cluster recently found by astronomers. About 10–20 percent of the night sky is blank, like a phantom zone, according to IFL Science. Its proximity ...

Leonid meteor shower on November 17th and 18th, 2022 The pinnacle of the Leonid meteor shower occurs in the hours a little before midnight on Thursday and continues into the early hours of Friday when the moon is not visible ...

On November 13th, CAPSTONE will arrive at the Moon and be the first spacecraft to join a novel, elongated orbit to aid NASA’s Artemis missions. The first CubeSat to reach and function on the Moon will be the 55-pound, Cislunar ...

One of the fascinating aspects of black holes is their mystery, meaning simply the fact that astrophysicists and scientists, in general, still have a lot more to learn about these cosmic objects. Another fascinating aspect about them is that despite ...

The Taurids annual meteor shower still seems to have a lot of wonderful celestial spectacles in store for us. All we need to do is to keep our eyes on the night sky every evening, as there is still plenty ...

The intermediate-mass black hole revealed itself to astronomers when it guzzled up a star strayed too close. The shredding of the star produced a flare of radiation that shortly outshone the combined stellar light, known as a “tidal disruption event.” ...

While Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity does a good job of explaining planetary and stellar gravity, its applicability is less clear on smaller scales. Gravity affects everything equally because everything has it. Despite being the most ubiquitous of the ...
