Scientists spotted a super flare originating hundreds of light years away, more powerful than those on our Sun sends out
Previously, they thought only younger star could cause such explosions, however, the study showed that older star can cause them as well.
The structure stretches across the southern border of the universe, and comprises thousands of galaxies and huge amounts of gas and dust.
eROSITA telescope scans the entire sky, produces comprehensive X-ray map that shows millions of objects
The objects discovered include Milky Way stars and supermassive black holes at the centres of other galaxies.
The study reveals that the planet is up to 58 times as massive as the Earth and completes an orbit every 8.5 days.
Most of the dots in the image are supermassive black holes at the centres of galaxies, devouring gas and becoming so hot that the glow can be seen across the universe.
It takes several million years for a planet to reach its final stage and it is forming around a star about 2.4 times the mass of the sun
Scientists have discovered a star that is almost as old as the Universe, is in its last stages of life
The star has low level of iron which means it is extremely old, as the early Universe had no metals and were made up of hydrogen and helium.
Hubble is the first major optical telescope to be placed in space and has an unobstructed view of the universe.
Black holes are extreme environments and are a testing ground for the laws of physics and our understanding of how the Universe works.
While we know it exists, making up a quarter of the universe, we are yet to see a dark matter particle.
Astronomers looked at nu Indi in the constellation Indus and found Gaia-Enceladus collided with the Milky Way around 11.5 billion years ago.
The astronomy team that made the new Hubble constant measurements is dubbed H0LiCOW.
Researchers are hoping to find signs of large, spinning black holes that can help in the hunt for gravitational waves.
TESS teamed up with Breakthrough Listen, an extraterrestrial intelligence search founded by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner.
Scientists came to this conclusion by studying the elements from rocky planets and fragments of asteroids.
The Sun orbits at 230km per second despite being 26,700 light-years away from our galaxy’s centre.
In his memorial lecture, 'Gravity and the Cosmos', he spoke about the role gravity has played in shaping the Universe.
The observation is 'the best evidence yet' of a trio of supermassive black holes in apparently merging galaxies.
The generally accepted age of the universe is 13.7 billion years, based on a Hubble Constant of 70
A popular theory claims that the Milky Way will collide with the neighbouring Andromeda in 4 bn years.
