The James Webb Space Telescope stared through the gas and dust surrounding an infant star around 1,000 light-years away to see the turbulent outflows it is generating.
The Hubble Space Telescope has observed a double whammy — two independent galaxy clusters grouped together in the same view.
It’s not always easy to match objects from various telescopic surveys. A new method can change this, allowing objects to be matched in up to 100 different surveys.
The newly discovered water mass, called the Atlantic Equatorial Water, stretches from Brazil to West Africa.
A new series of experiments has shown that the mysterious "E-prime layer," which surrounds Earth's outer core, is created by water that leaks deep into our planet's interior.
While NASA tested new Mars helicopter technology on Earth, Ingenuity was breaking records flying across the Martian surface.
New research strengthens the connection between neutron stars with powerful magnetic fields called magnetars, and mysterious blasts of radiation called fast radio bursts.
Building a space station on the Moon might seem like something out of a science fiction movie, but each new lunar mission is bringing that idea closer to reality.
Synchronizing two different stellar clocks helped reveal how long before adolescent stars fly the nest and leave their stellar siblings.
