Repeating Space Signals FRBs 121102 Is No More A Mystery

April 1, 2016 |

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. Read More

White Dwarf Star With Oxygen Atmosphere Discovered

April 1, 2016 | 4

Scientists have discovered a new bizarre type of star with atmosphere made almost entirely of oxygen 99.9% pure oxygen, the most oxygen-rich atmosphere in the known universe. According to the theories, such star should exist but researchers have never identified it until now. Read More

Super-Earth 55 Cancri e Is Incredible Hot, Maps Reveal

March 31, 2016 |

Using data from NASA’s Spitzer Telescope, a team of astronomers has produced a precision temperature map of the Super-Earth 55 Cancri e, a rocky exoplanet located 40 light years away. Read More

First Supernova Shockwave Detect By NASA’s Kepler Telescope

March 26, 2016 |

The second generation of the Kepler Space Telescope called K2 has captured for the first time the shockwave of a supernova explosion. Known as a shock breakout, this flash of energy precedes a supernova and last only about 20 minutes, so catching this is an investigative milestone for astronomers. Read More

TYC 3667-1280-1 Most Massive & Oldest Star Hosting A Hot Jupiter

March 25, 2016 | 2

Astronomers have discovered a hot-Jupiter planet orbiting a red giant star on a circular orbit, a unique system that serve as a perfect laboratory for planet formation and migration theories. Read More

Nine Monster Stars In R136 Spotted By Hubble Telescope

March 18, 2016 | 1

A team of astronomers have identified nine very massive stars — with masses over 100 times that of the sun — within the star cluster R136, also known as RMC 136 which lies at the center of the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud 170,000 light-years away from us. Read More

First-Known Repeating Fast Radio Bursts Detected Outside Our Galaxy

March 13, 2016 |

Telescopes here on Earth have detected signals that might help us solve an ongoing mystery, in a discovery that has astronomers very excited, but also puzzled. Read More

Astronomers Discovered Two New Exotic Pulsars PSR J0024−7204

March 7, 2016 |

By using the 64-m Parkes radio telescope, a team of scientists have discovered two new exotic millisecond pulsars in the globular cluster 47Tucanae (NGC 104), 16,700 light years away from Earth. Read More

K2-25b Exoplanet Could Help Us Learn More About Planets Evolution

February 26, 2016 |

Recently, astronomers have discovered a really large exoplanet, named K2-25b, in a nearby open star cluster, a discovery that could shed light on planetary evolution. Read More

February 20, 2016 | 1

Astronomers have used NASA’s Chandra x-ray Observatory to discover a powerful jet from a very distant supermassive black hole that is being illuminated by the oldest light in the universe. Read More

Why Gravitational Wave Discovery Matter?

February 19, 2016 |

Last week, a teeny, tiny, unimaginably small little blip made headlines everywhere. That blip was humanity’s first direct evidence of gravitational waves, and the whole world freaked out about it. Read More

Breakthrough Discovery: Scientists Have Finally Detected Gravitational Waves

February 12, 2016 |

WE DETECTED GRAVITATIONAL WAVES…. A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away… two black holes collided in a fateful swirling waltz. Just like when you toss a rock into a pond and it creates ripples on the surface of the water, this collision sent ripples through the fabric of space time. Read More
