The European Southern Observatory (ESO) announced that ALMA discovered prebiotic molecule or a building block of life near an infant-like star. The molecule methyl isocyanate was discovered in a young star in the IRAS 16293-2422 region.
Astronomers have discovered a tsunami of stars and gas that crashed with the disk of a spiral galaxy known as IC 2163. The result is an eyelid-shaped star formation.
Not many galactic eyelid formations have been observed because their lifespan is considered short. Scientists said the recent discovery could aid in learning more about this rare formation.
Scientists have found another space oddity 400 light-years from Earth: a binary star with three misaligned planet-forming discs.
Another discovery was made by astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) that could lead to more knowledge about how supermassive black holes grow.
The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) observed water dew drops outside the core of the Spiderweb galaxy.
A team of astronomers, using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), has come up with a way to measure precisely the mass of a supermassive black hole sitting in the center of the galaxy. This monster black hole, tagged as NGC 1332, is said to be 660 million bigger than the Sun.
Astronomers recently discovered that one dim and cool dwarf star is not just being still out there in space -- it is heavily magnetic, just as much so as some parts of our Sun. If we were located next to this star, we'd have no satellite communications.
