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.
"DeeDee" have enough mass to maintain spherical shape, making it a qualified as a dwarf planet.
A peek into the ALMA telescope gives us a glimpse of the early Universe billions of years ago.
Researchers using Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimetre Array (ALMA) Observatory were able to observe the early stages in the formation of a new solar system.
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.
Data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile provides first direct glimpse of the development of a multiple-star system.
An international team of astronomers has detected signs of possible site of an icy planet similar to Uranus and Neptune around a young star about 176 light-years away in the constellation Hydra.
Scientists have found another space oddity 400 light-years from Earth: a binary star with three misaligned planet-forming discs.
Scientists have glimpsed thousands of galaxies in a distant portion of the universe through a powerful telescope, providing new insights into the “Golden Age” of galaxy formation.
A team of astronomers using ALMA and ESO's Very Large telescope discovered the secret of giant gas blobs in distant regions of the universe.
There is a new planet detected near TW Hyrdae, a close star from us. And it is possible that we can now know how planets form.
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.
