Even though 95% of the Universe is invisible and all of it has pretty much the same temperature everywhere, astronomers still made it possible to study many of the galaxies and stars existing out there. They probably didn’t cover even ...

In recent years, cutting-edge telescopes around the world have spotted hundreds of gold-rich stars. These rich in gold stars likely originated in progenitor galaxies, smaller galaxies that combined to become our Milky Way, as shown by the most detailed models ...

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured a spooky giant space tarantula, where the biggest and hottest stars live. The Tarantula Nebula, aka 30 Doradus, is actually known as the ‘brightest star-forming place in the galaxies nearest our galaxy,’ according ...

Here’s a mind-blowing fact that we need to deal with: if our planet had been located close to or in the Milky Way galaxy’s core, the entire sky would have been shining permanently. There would be no such thing as ...

A dead star on the run that is zipping across space at breakneck speeds has left a massive trail of matter as well as antimatter particles in its wake. The star is a pulsar known as PSR J2030+4415 or J2030 ...

A swarm of planet-forming dust has been discovered by astronomers to contain the biggest organic molecule yet seen, possibly providing fresh insights into how the building elements of life eventually wind up on planets. A team of researchers from the ...

Imagine a world where the ‘Fear of the Dark’ song by Iron Maiden doesn’t have any meaning to you, as night doesn’t exist anymore. Although that’s a magnificent song that reveals the inner fear that many of us have, surely ...

Many huge regions of the Cosmos present a fight for survival. Not even stars can bypass their evanescent state, regardless of how bright, big, and powerful they are. ‘Zombie’ stars don’t represent anything new for astronomers, but even they can ...

Astronomers have discovered a pair of odd stars that are unlike any other stars they have ever seen before, and that are coated with a perplexing accumulation of peculiar compounds. This cosmic unusual pair may have come into being as a ...

Planets do not take much longer to form after stars have formed. For example, the Sun formed 4.6 billion years ago, and the Earth about 4.5 billion years ago. However, scientists now say it is not necessarily the only possibility. ...
