These four gas planets get feed from asteroids just like in our Solar System

The planetary system around star HR8799 is remarkably similar to our Solar System. A research team led by astronomers from the University of Groningen and...

Scientists find a much earlier birth date for tectonic plates

Yale geophysicists reported that Earth’s ever-shifting, underground network of tectonic plates was firmly in place more than 4 billion years ago — at least...

Scientists find a new class of cosmic explosions

Astronomers have found two objects that, added to a strange object discovered in 2018, constitute a new class of cosmic explosions. The new type of...

Astronomers create cloud atlas for hot, Jupiter-like exoplanets

Giant planets in our solar system and circling other stars have exotic clouds unlike anything on Earth. The gas giants orbiting close to their stars...

Supermassive black holes thrive under pressure

When distant galaxies combine and form clusters, they create a highly pressurized environment. A Yale-led study has discovered that supermassive black holes thrive in...

Milky way’s satellite galaxies may shed light on dark matter

Two new studies have revealed more about the galaxies that orbit around the Milky Way. They include evidence that large satellite galaxies can bring their...

Scientists find twinkling heart of Milky Way

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) found quasi-periodic flickers in millimeter-waves from the center of the Milky Way, Sagittarius (Sgr) A*. The team...

How cosmic rays may have shaped early life

Before there were animals, bacteria or even DNA on Earth, self-replicating molecules were slowly evolving their way from simple matter to life beneath a...
