Scientists find the oldest material on Earth in a meteorite

Stars have life cycles. They're born when bits of dust and gas floating through space find each other and collapse in on each other and...

Stellar heavy metals can trace history of galaxies

Astronomers have cataloged signs of 9 heavy metals in the infrared light from supergiant and giant stars. New observations based on this catalog will help...

Shocked meteorites provide clues to Earth’s lower mantle

Deep below the Earth's surface lies a thick rocky layer called the mantle, which makes up the majority of our planet's volume. While Earth's mantle...

Mars is losing water faster than expected

Scientists develop new method to detect oxygen on exoplanets

Scientists have developed a new method for detecting oxygen in exoplanet atmospheres that may accelerate the search for life. One possible indication of life, or...

A new infrared image reveals our galactic center’s most massive stars

A new panoramic image based on data captured by NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) shows the bustling center of our galaxy like...

Scientists capture the turbulent life of two supermassive black holes in galaxy crash

400 million light-years away from Earth, in the constellation of Ophiuchus, two galaxies are crashing into each other and forming a galaxy we know...
