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.
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.
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.
