The experiment provides a clean, controllable testbed to study plasmas in complex locations like the sun’s atmosphere or white dwarf stars.
The high-energy neutrino was shot out across the cosmos, travelling over 700 million light-years to an observatory below the South Pole.
Blazars, or feeding supermassive black holes, are popular astronomical subjects due to their complicated mechanism of emission.
Perseverance, Tianwen-1, Hope: US, China, UAE spacecrafts to arrive at Mars in quick succession this month
China’s Tianwen-1 duo will remain paired in orbit until May, when the rover will separate, descend to the Martian surface.
The mentorship program the students were part of, connects high schoolers interested in research with real-world scientists at Harvard and MIT.
Stargazers are able to marvel at NGC 6946 with a telescope since it is a face-on galaxy, that observers see it facing them at all times.
The planet's poles wander up to 10 centimetres from the average axis of rotation, in a cycle that repeats every 207 days.
New Horizons is currently cruising beyond the solar system's edge, where light pollution caused by sunlight bounces off dust and debris.
The GMR telescope has become just the third instance of IEEE recognition for an Indian contribution.
Astronomers currently have as many as fifty different theories for what causes these fast radio bursts, aliens among them.
Some of the coalescing black holes could help scientists understand how black holes partner up before they collide.
Instead of oxygen in its atmosphere like Earth, Titan has small amounts of methane, much like the early stages of our home world.
Voyager 1 entered interstellar space in 2012, while Voyager 2 finally crossed the boundary marking the beginning of outer space in November 2018.
Nobel-winning black hole physics by Penrose, Hawking stands on work of Indian physicist Amal Raychaudhuri
The Raychaudhuri Equation continues to be a key tool in investigating the behaviour of black hole horizons in modern physics.
Nobel Prize 2020 in Physics awarded to Penrose, Genzel and Ghez for findings in cosmology, black holes
Half the award was shared between two researchers that helped discover that every galaxy is home to a supermassive black hole.
A black hole 85 times the sun's mass, and a second, 66 solar masses, collided. The result was a black hole 142 times as massive as the sun.
The total amount of matter in the observable Universe is equivalent to 66 billion trillion times the mass of our Sun.
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.
