A supernova that recently exploded in the Pinwheel Galaxy has revealed hitherto unknown information about the final days of the star that exploded.
The gravitational waves are emitted by ultracompact binaries of black holes, neutron stars and white dwarfs.
Three teams have progressed through to the final round of the MagQuest Challenge to design a better way of measuring the shifts in the geomagnetic field.
The magnetic field is a thousand times weaker than Earth’s, but is spread out across 16,000 light years.
Finding more debris from stellar explosions will tell us about how heavy elements are distributed across the galaxy.
By modeling the neutrinos from a supernova as an exotic kind of fluid moving at nearly the speed of light, researchers are searching for signs of how neutrinos can interact with each other.
An observing campaign involving New Horizons, the Hubble Space Telescope and perhaps even you is designed to better understand how heat flows through the atmospheres of two ice giants.
Knowing that black holes tend to have these masses could help provide a new way of measuring the expansion rate of the universe.
Radio data has also allowed planetary scientists to measure Mars' rotation rate and learn more about the world's over-sized, molten core.
Trained on a neural network on 6,000 stars, the EAGLES algorithm will be used on surveys of millions more.
Mars' mighty Olympus Mons may have once been a volcanic island surrounded by an ocean nearly 4 miles deep, according to geological evidence found in towering cliffs that ring the extinct volcano.
This major system, which transport heat from the tropics to the north Atlantic, are now at high risk of collapse due to human-induced climate change.
Venus has more volcanoes than any other planet in the solar system, and researchers may now know what is powering them.
The velocity of interstellar objects passing through our solar system, like 'Oumuamua, can be correlated to their chemistry and the type of star they came from.
Thermal tides in Earth's atmosphere have counterbalanced gravitational tides from the moon, bringing a pause to the slowing down of Earth's rotation.
A shift in Mars' climate 400,000 years ago produced a change in wind direction that left its mark in the erosion of bright sand dunes.
Why the sun's corona, or outer atmosphere, is so hot has been a mystery for decades, but machine-learning algorithms are now on the case.
Time dilation, brought about by the relativistic expansion of space, has resulted in the observed slowing of 'clocks' in the early universe.
