How some massive stars become isolated in the universe

A pair of University of Michigan studies reveals how some massive stars--stars eight or more times the mass of our sun--become isolated in the...

Scientists discover smallest Earth-sized rogue planet in the Milky Way

Our Galaxy may be teeming with rogue planets, gravitationally unbound to any star. An international team of scientists, led by Polish astronomers, has announced the...

Massive galaxies were surprisingly mature in the early universe, says study

Massive galaxies were already much more mature in the early universe than previously expected. This was shown by an international team of astronomers who studied...

Scientists unravel the mystery of unusual neutron star system

After more than two decades, an international research team has identified a galactic mystery source of gamma rays: a heavy neutron star with a...

It is possible to be in two places at once, shows study

Quantum physics has demonstrated that tiny particles can exist in multiple places at once, but a new method may prove that it is possible...

Scientists find the fastest possible speed of sound

A study collaboration between Queen Mary University of London, the University of Cambridge and the Institute for High Pressure Physics in Troitsk has discovered...

Billions of Venus rocks may be on the surface of our Moon — and...

A growing body of research suggests the planet Venus may have had an Earth-like environment billions of years ago, with water and a thin...

Einstein’s theory of relativity just got 500x harder to beat

Einstein’s general theory of relativity—the idea that gravity is matter warping spacetime—has withstood over 100 years of scrutiny and testing, including the newest test...

Graph neural networks could help discover new particles, says study

Machine learning algorithms can beat the world’s hardest video games in minutes and solve complex equations faster than the collective efforts of generations of...

Gravity causes homogeneity of the universe, says study

The temporal evolution of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present, is described by Einstein's field equations of general relativity. However, there are...
