By using Gaia satellite, a team of scientists, with a little help from amateur astronomers, have found an extremely rare star system: a binary system where one star completely eclipses the other, the first of its kind ever discovered. Read More

Scientists Witnessed The Birth Of Jupiter-like Planet

July 3, 2015 |

For the first time, a team of astronomers at the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile have confirmed, directly, the existence of a young gas giant planet, similar to Jupiter, still in the early stages of formation, embedded in the accretion disc of its host star. Read More

Astronomers Find First Ever Alien Planet With A Gigantic Comet-Like Tail

June 30, 2015 |

Using data provided by NASA/ESA’ Hubble Space Telescope, an international team of astronomers have discovered an amazing and rare exoplanet (a planet outside the solar system) with a giant comet-like tail. Read More

Astronomers Find Earth-Sized Exoplanets Follow Circular Orbits, Just Like Earth

June 2, 2015 |

Astronomers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Aarhus University (Denmark) have discovered 74 Earth-sized exoplanets — planets beyond our solar system orbiting a star other than the Sun — located hundreds of light years away from Earth, orbit their host stars in the same way that our planet orbits the sun, following similar circular orbital paths.

Astronomers Have Found Clear Link Between Black Holes And Galactic Merger

June 1, 2015 |

Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have investigated the relationship between monster black holes that power radio-signal-emitting galactic jets and galaxies that have undergone mergers. Read More

For The First Time Astronomers Observe Volcanic Activity On Super-Earth

May 5, 2015 |

Forty light years away in the Cancer constellation is a yellow star much like our sun. However, it is not alone, it has a smaller companion, a red dwarf star which is separated by over one thousand times the distance from the Earth to the Sun. 55 Cancri is the name of this binary star system. It also has a special feature: the yellow dwarf (55 Cancri A) have five exoplanets and may possibly host other worlds that we could not detect yet. Read More

Astronomers Spot Old Red Giant Stars With “Chemical Clock” On Hold

April 26, 2015 |

Astrophysicists from the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics have discovered a group of ancient red giant stars which should be old but they still look young when their ages are inferred using asteroseismology. Read More
