Scientists have observed for the first time, the occurrence of "intergalactic rain" falling into supermassive black holes.
A research conducted by the University of Birmingham detected resonant acoustic oscillations also dubbed as "stellar music", sounds which are emanating from the oldest stars in the galaxy about 13 billion years old.
With the data gathered by the Cosmic Origin Spectrograph (COS) was attached to NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, researchers from the University of Colorado published a study saying that 'wasteful' galaxies eject heavy metal materials into halos of gases and to deep space million light years away.
New study reveals a new class of galaxies called red geysers that host supermassive black hole winds so hot and energetic that stars can't form.
Researchers at Cornell University said that in order to find habitable zones in the galaxy, scientists should look at expanding red and old stars because they are capable of thawing icy and frozen moons and planets. Once thawed, they can now have the capability to retain water and eventually enable life to thrive.
New photos of a strange, spiral galaxy that looks like a snowflake has been released by NASA. The pictures of the said galaxy, tagged as NGC 6814, was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Stephen Hawking announced on Tuesday that he and Russian millionaire Yuri Milner are launching an interstellar project dubbed Breakthrough Starshot. The said revolutionary space exploration aims to send robotic probes to an almost impossible destination, Alpha Centauri. However, before Breakthrough Starshot pushes through, there are many challenges that it has to overcome.
A new planet has been discovered in an open star cluster that is relatively near to Earth. A University of Texas astronomer reported the finding in a recent journal publication.
New evidence suggests that periodic mass extinctions occurring over the past 260 million years are directly linked to comet or asteroid showers.
The new galaxy, EGS8p7, the farthest from Earth so far, is causing scientists to reconsider their ideas regarding the universe's early evolution.
Astronomers from the U.K.'s Keele University and University of Central Lancashire recently learned many things about the much larger-than-usual black hole in a recently discovered 9 billion-year-old galaxy.
Astronomers found a rare type of growing galaxy that appears to feed off stolen gases.
NASA Hubble Space Telescope images revealed 2,753 young, blue star clusters in a neighboring galaxy. This sheds light on the formation history of stars in our universe.
Astronomers recently discovered two supermassive black holes in the quasar known as Markarian 231, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This suggests that these massive black holes form from violent mergers.
