A group of astronomers at the University of Arizona have discovered an unprecedented quantity of globular clusters, which could shed light on galaxy evolution.  Discovering globular clusters  The novel globular clusters were found during a survey of the elliptical galaxy Centaurus A,...

Study sheds light on Sagittarius A*, a black hole at the Milky Way’s centre

An international team of researchers has found that the black hole at the centre of our galaxy, Sagittarius A*, not only flares irregularly from day to day but also in the long term. The team, led by Alexis Andrés, analysed...

Unconventional exoplanet has been discovered

Researchers have discovered a sub-Neptune exoplanet that is orbiting a red dwarf star with an irregular orbit. An international research team from the University of Bern, as well as an observational team from the SAINT-EX observatory in Mexico, have discovered...

Cutting-edge model reveals our solar system formed from rings

Scientists SwRI have developed a groundbreaking model that has potentially unveiled the formation of our solar system.

Supernovae and life on Earth are seemingly connected 

Researchers discover a remarkable link between the number of nearby exploding stars, called supernovae, and life on Earth.  New evidence demonstrates a close connection between the fraction of organic matter buried in sediments on Earth, and changes in supernovae occurrence....

Eruption of a magnetar reveals high-frequency oscillations

An international scientific group has managed to measure for the first-time oscillations in the brightness of a neutron star (magnetar) during its most violent moments. In just a tenth of a second the magnetar released energy equivalent to that produced...

Liquid metal experiment provides insight into the Sun’s corona

Scientists were able to create a liquid metal experiment to uncover the mystery regarding the high temperatures reached by the Sun’s corona. The Sun’s corona At 15 million degrees Celsius, the centre of our Sun is unimaginably hot. At its surface,...

Astronomers create new method to understand galaxy evolution

Astronomers at The University of Toledo established the star formation history of a post-starburst galaxy using its cluster population to understand galaxy evolution. The University of Toledo employed a husband-and-wife team of astronomers to join forces for the first time...

Novel study indicates that Mars habitability restricted by its small size

A new study conducted by Washington University in St. Louis suggests that the habitability of Mars is limited by its small size, which means it cannot hold large amounts of water.
