The location of four new fast radio bursts -- FRB 180924, FRB 181112, FRB 190102, and FRB 190608 -- have been traced back to galaxies that are still forming new stars at a moderate rate, just like our Milky Way galaxy. Dr Bhandari’s research published in The Astrophysical Jour
The new Moon is extremely tiny, estimated to have a diameter panning a maximum of six meters, and is essentially an asteroid that might be breaking away from the Earth's orbit really soon
Astronomers are testing an idea developed by Albert Einstein about a century ago to resolve a longstanding puzzle over what is driving the accelerated expansion of the universe.
The study suggests that astronomers have a solid chance of doing something that's never been done before: detect a supernova fast enough to witness what happens at the very beginning of a star's demise.
Located 250 light-years away, the star HIP 102152 is more like the Sun than any other solar twin - except that it is nearly four billion years older. This older twin may be host to rocky planets and gives us an unprecedented chance to see how the Sun will look when it ages, researchers said.
Astronomers have found a mini planet beyond our solar system that is the smallest of more than 800 extra-solar planets discovered, scientists said on Wednesday.
Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe - a group of quasars so large it would take four billion years to cross it while traveling at speed of light.
Astronomers have captured one of the flattest galaxies known in the universe, sitting like a silver needle in the haystack of space. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope produced a beautiful image of the spiral galaxy IC 2233, one of the flattest galaxies known, the US space agency said.
Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have found seven galaxies that formed relatively shortly after the Universe's birth some 13.7 billion years ago, scientists said on Wednesday, describing them "as baby pictures of the universe."
A large asteroid that flies in nearly the same orbit as Earth will make a close pass by the planet, but there's no chance of an impact - at least for hundreds of years, astronomers said on Wednesday.
Astronomers have uncovered new evidence that suggests that space-borne X-ray detectors could be the first to spot new supernovae signalling ...
An international team of astronomers has produced the first map of the universe as it was 11 billion years ago, filling a gap between the Big Bang and the rapid expansion that followed.
An Anglo-German team of astronomers has discovered a new planet orbiting a nearby sun at just the right distance for an Earth-like climate that could support life
Astronomers have discovered two 'super-luminous' massive stars which exploded 12.5 billion years ago, believed to be the oldest supernovae ever detected.
Planets supporting alien life beyond the solar system will be found within the next 50 years, says renowned astronomer Sir Patrick Moore.
An earth-sized planet has been found orbiting Alpha Centauri, the star nearest to the earth at over four light years away, but which would still take ...
The search for a home, away from home will never end. Even as we continue to live our sheltered lives on ...
