Milky Way’s central black hole puts Einstein’s theories to the test

University of California astronomers have tested Albert Einstein’s theories of relativity in the crucible of the monstrous black hole at the center of our...

What did the early milky way look like?

In the very early days of our Universe, just over 13 billion years ago, there was very little structure. There were stars, and they were...

Scientists find cold, dry planets could have a lot of hurricanes!

Hurricanes usually mean water as they use warm, moist air for fuel. However, new simulations show they can form in extremely cold, dry climates. A climate...

Scientists discover star birth places are rare in our Milky Way galaxy

Astronomers using the Nobeyama Radio Obeservatory (NRO) 45-m telescope found that high-density gas, the material for stars, accounts for only 3% of the total...

Hubble Space Telescope snaps a galactic potpourri of particles

Every now and then, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope glimpses a common object — say, a spiral galaxy — in an interesting or unusual way. A sharply angled perspective,...

Moon has more water ice than previously thought–it’s just buried below the surface

There may be enough water to sustain a future lunar settlement. The polar regions of the moon may contain significantly more water ice than previously...

Einstein’s general relativity theory is questioned but still stands for now

Does the physicist’s theory tell the full story? A detailed analysis of a star’s orbit near supermassive black hole gives a look into how gravity...

How supermassive black holes shape their host galaxies

Data from ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory has revealed how supermassive black holes shape their host galaxies with powerful winds that sweep away interstellar matter. In...

Scientists discover two dead stars whipping around each other in minutes

Two dead stars have been spotted whipping around each other every seven minutes. The rare celestial find was made using Caltech's Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF),...

Scientists map vast void in our Milky Way neighborhood

Scientists reveal more of the vast cosmic structure surrounding the Milky Way galaxy in a recent study The universe is a tapestry of galaxy congregations...
