Some nuclear star clusters in our galaxy must have been formed from objects falling into black holes, the research suggests.
While Chandra captures X-rays in the outflow of stellar explosions in some images, Hubble throws light on galaxies.
Scientists have mapped the enormous halo of Andromeda and found that the halo extends 1.3 million light-years from the galaxy.
The mystery has enthralled skywatchers since the star began to lose brightness, and fast, in October 2019.
Radio bursts are t mystery, they pulse brightly in radio waves for just a few milliseconds before fading away and are rarely seen again.
Radio astronomy tools used by researchers found previously unknown magnetic field structures in the NGC 4217 galaxy.
The structure stretches across the southern border of the universe, and comprises thousands of galaxies and huge amounts of gas and dust.
Newton's theory of gravity 'out of date', dark matter can explain ocean tides, UK scientist proposes
A former Royal Aircraft Establishment scientist has proposed an alternative theory to Newton's, of why ocean tides form on Earth.
The FRB in question reports like clockwork, in one of the most definitive patterns seen from a source of these flashes.
It has a magnetic field 1,000 times stronger than a typical neutron star and some 100 million times stronger than the most powerful artificial magnets.
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.
Scientists have been trying to find Earth-like planets with the hope that these exoplanets might contain life and this is the first time they have found it.
While these structures have captured the imagination and attention of many scientists and astrophysicists, the source of these bubbles is still unknown.
Stars that reside in the centre of a cluster would have lesser chances of forming planets while the chances of planet formation are higher in the outer layers.
Violent crash of two galaxies, the Milky way and Sagittarius, might have helped in the creation of our solar system
The twi galaxies first crashed more than six billion years ago and two other times which created a burst of Milky Way star formation.
Astronomers capture image of a galaxy described as a “cosmic ring of fire”, as it existed 11 billion years ago
It is two billion times longer than the distance between the Earth and the Sun and makes stars at 50 times the rate of the Milky Way.
The researchers explain both the massive mass of the object and why similar systems aren’t observed using traditional radio astronomy techniques.
The bright pink cloud and young stars surrounding it in the image taken by the telescope has been named LHA 120-N 150.
The vernal equinox marks the beginning of spring in the North, autumn in the South is the earliest March equinox in 124 years.
Astronomers looked at nu Indi in the constellation Indus and found Gaia-Enceladus collided with the Milky Way around 11.5 billion years ago.
