In 2004, researchers were combing through the data from a satellite called WMAP when they noticed something unusual. Part of the universe looked a lot colder than the rest. They called it, appropriately, the Cold Spot and scientists still aren’t really sure why it’s there.
NASA’ NEOWISE mission (Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer) has just released a worth of survey data, characterizing 439 near-Earth objects, out of those, 72 are newly discovered.
Using deep UK Schmidt telescope (UKST), a team of astronomers have found and confirmed six new planetary nebulae in a neighbor galaxy, the Small Magellanic Cloud.
Since NASA’ Cassini spacecraft observed the famous geysers erupting on Saturn’s moon Enceladus in 2005, the phenomena that drives and sustains these eruptions has baffled scientists, but now researchers may have finally solved the mystery.
A team of astronomers working at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have just found a stable planet inside in a three-star system.
Very recently, a team of scientists from CSIRO (the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) detected ten bright bursts from the direction of the fast radio burst FRBs 121102.
