New computer simulation aims to verify a widely held but unproven theory of the source of celestial ...

Galactic Archaeology

Computational astrophysics study modeled for the first time faint supernovae of metal-free first stars, yielding carbon-enhanced abundance patterns for star formation. Study investigated formation of ...

New radio images from ALMA show for the first time the direct effect of volcanic activity on the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon ...

AI and Photonics Join Forces to Make It Easier to Find 'New Earths'

By combining photonics with artificial intelligence, scientists have developed a sensor that will help decipher the 'twinkle' of stars and allow for Earth-based exploration of planets ...

Evidence of Broadside Collision With Dwarf Galaxy Discovered in Milky Way

Astrophysicists have discovered a series of telltale shell-like formations of stars in the vicinity of the Virgo constellation, evidence of a radial merger between a dwarf galaxy and the Milky Way, ...

Ultraviolet Shines Light on Origins of the Solar System

In the search to discover the origins of our solar system, an international team including planetary scientists has compared the composition of the sun to the composition of the most ancient ...

Astrophysics Team Lights the Way for More Accurate Model of the Universe

Scientists demonstrated the first use of a method called self-calibration to remove contamination from gravitational lensing signals. The results should lead to more accurate cosmological models of ...

The Milky Way Galaxy Has a Clumpy Halo

Astronomers at the University of Iowa have determined our galaxy is surrounded by a clumpy halo of hot gases that is continually being supplied with material ejected by birthing or dying stars. The ...

Two Planets Around a Red Dwarf

Astronomers have detected two exoplanets orbiting the star TOI-1266. The telescope thus demonstrates its high precision and takes an important step in the quest of finding potentially habitable ...

A long discussed theory about the local magnetic spots of the moon suggests that they are the result of magnetization processes caused by impacts of massive bodies on the moon surface. A new study ...

Anemic Star Cluster Breaks Metal-Poor Record

In a surprising discovery, astronomers have found a star cluster in the Andromeda Galaxy that contains a record-breaking low amount of metals, calling into question the so-called ...

Star Clusters Are Only the Tip of the Iceberg

Star clusters have been part of the Imaginarium of human civilization for millennia. The brightest star clusters to Earth, like the Pleiades, are readily visible to the naked eye. A team around ...

NASA's James Webb Telescopes Will Reveal Hidden Galaxies

Simulations show it's possible to distinguish host galaxy from quasars, although still challenging due to the galaxy's small size on the ...

Researchers have proposed a novel method for finding dark matter, the cosmos' mystery material that has eluded detection for ...

The Mountains of Pluto Are Snowcapped, but Not for the Same Reasons as on Earth

In 2015, the New Horizons space probe discovered spectacular snowcapped mountains on Pluto, which are strikingly similar to mountains on Earth. Such a landscape had never before been observed ...

Astronomers Solve Dark Matter Puzzle of Strange Galaxy

Astronomers have found that the total number of globular clusters around Dragonfly 44 and, therefore, the dark matter content, is much less than earlier findings had suggested, which shows that this ...

Modelling Extreme Magnetic Fields and Temperature Variation on Distant Stars

New research is helping to explain one of the big questions that has perplexed astrophysicists for the past 30 years - what causes the changing brightness of distant stars called magnetars. Magnetars ...

The Black Hole Always Chirps Twice: New Clues Deciphering the Shape of Black Holes

Gravitational-wave scientists reveal that when two black holes collide and merge, the remnant black hole 'chirps' not once, but multiple times, emitting gravitational waves -- intense ...
