The discovery suggests that planets may actually be capable of surviving the formation of a white dwarf.
The discovery, some experts think, might 'signal a gap' in the current understanding of dark matter and its properties.
Glimpse of our system once the Sun is dead? First Jupiter-sized exoplanet found orbiting white dwarf star
Past research has indicated that some white dwarf stars can retain some of the more distant remnants of their planetary systems.
SpaceX's megaconstellation also sets a precedent for other companies to follow suit with their own, without considering the needs of the astronomy community, say experts.
The finding is the strongest result yet in a series of quantum mechanical discoveries that have upended our ideas about reality.
NASA funds five 'concept mission' studies to the Sun; two will be chosen to carry out their missions
The five shortlisted proposals are will each receive $1.25 million from NASA to carry out a nine-month mission concept study.
The rare sighting is an opportunity to see the birth of a comet as it starts to become active, researchers say.
This gas cloud in the constellation Aquilla 'beats' in rhythm with a black hole 100 light-years away.
The mystery has enthralled skywatchers since the star began to lose brightness, and fast, in October 2019.
The 'baby' galaxy was discovered using the powerful ALMA radio telescope in Chile, using a technique called gravitational lensing.
The structure stretches across the southern border of the universe, and comprises thousands of galaxies and huge amounts of gas and dust.
The system is thought to be a precursor to ones like the double neutron star system that prompted the 2017 discovery of gravitational waves.
The FRB in question reports like clockwork, in one of the most definitive patterns seen from a source of these flashes.
Ancient micrometeoroids carried stardust, water to asteroid 4 Vesta; could have done same for Earth, say scientists
The stardust in asteroid Vesta holds a unique record of ancient galactic material that was delivered to a celestial body far from Earth.
Milky Way galaxy could be home to 36 active, intelligent civilisations besides humans, study suggests
If technological civilizations last as long as they do on Earth, it is estimated that there could be 36 ongoing intelligent civilizations in the galaxy.
The spacecraft has observed how Proxima Centauri and Wolf 359 appear in different positions than when observed from Earth than deep space.
The time between each beat could reveal key information – particularly about the matter near the black hole, and its size.
While these structures have captured the imagination and attention of many scientists and astrophysicists, the source of these bubbles is still unknown.
The PDS 70 star system that was photographed is the first known multi-planetary system in which planet formation has been observed in action.
Our planet is pelted with space dust and tiny meteorites daily, which make their way through the atmosphere and collect on the surface.
