Sifting through data from the Very Large Array Sky Survey, scientists have observed an object that might be a "pulsar wind nebula."
The 4-meter-wide International Liquid Mirror Telescope (ILMT) at Devasthal Observatory in the central Himalayas comes online.
Scientists at the Palomar Observatory turned to the Pauma band, upon whose ancestral lands the facility sits, to name the asteroid, now dubbed 'Ayló'chaxnim, or 'Venus girl.'
Because Earth is the only planet known to host life as we know it, researchers have usually focused on planetary systems similar to our own when searching for extraterrestrial life.
The test was designed to study how gas behaves in microgravity, and the results may lead to future experiments with the fifth state of matter, Bose-Einstein condensates.
A year's worth of sound recordings from NASA's Perseverance rover reveals that it's very quiet on Mars.
Scientists who analyzed the chemical composition of a space rock called the Hypatia stone suspect they have discovered evidence of a rare type of supernova.
European scientists used the eROSITA X-ray telescope to observe a white dwarf nova for the first time.
Reference Alpha particles, also known as alpha radiation, are the star players in the game of alpha decay — here's everything you need to know.
Reference Learn about Jupiter’s weird inner moon Amalthea. It was not only the fifth Jovian satellite to be discovered, but it is also the fifth-largest.
At that temperature, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray free-electron laser will be able to accelerate electrons close to the speed of light.
Science institutions around the world will stream press conferences announcing the discovery; here's your guide to tuning in.
Scientists suggest that one of the key characteristics of a life-supporting, rocky exoplanet is that it needs to be young enough to generate heat through radioactive decay.
This year's first lunar eclipse — one of two — will be able to be seen across the majority of the Americas.
According to the new decadal survey, one of the best tools to help protect the planet against the impact of near-Earth Objects (NEOs) is ground-based planetary radar.
Post-starburst galaxies were once thought to expel their star-forming gas, creating a dormant galaxy. But new data shows otherwise.
A new theory explains why Saturn's moon Titan looks a bit like Earth, though made of completely different stuff.
An unusual rock type spotted by two Mars rovers may indicate that the Martian landscape was shaped by cataclysmic volcanic eruptions.
On Sunday (April 17), skywatching cameras in Ontario recorded a massive fireball that likely produced tens to hundreds of grams of meteorites.
The nova system RS Ophiuchi produced extremely high-energy gamma-rays in its most recent explosion, according to observations by the dual MAGIC telescopes in Spain's Canary Islands.
In a new analysis of their gravitational wave data, scientists with the international LIGO-Virgo Collaboration have discovered 10 new examples of merging binary black holes.
