A team of researchers led by Walter Robert Binns of Washington University in St. Louis has detected traces of 60Fe in cosmic rays flying through space, revealing that ashes from a nearby supernova continue to rain down on Earth up to this day.
After proving the existence of Einstein's gravitational waves, researchers has once again discovered something that is not expected-light bursting from the collision of two black holes.
After being involved in an "unusual tugging" with an undiscovered planet, NASA's Cassini Spacecraft in Saturn is once again making its way in the headlines.
A recent discovery by scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) found traces of iron isotopes in samples from the moon, similar to those found on our ocean floor, leading them to believe that it came from the same supernova explosion.
It pays to clean one's basement once in a while. A 1917 astronomical glass plate was unearthed from the collections of Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, California revealed the first-ever evidence of exoplanetary system.
Stephen Hawking amazed the community once again. Together with esteemed colleagues, he recently launched a $100-million space exploration project called Breakthrough Starshot, which aims to reach the nearest star system, Alpha Centauri, in a span of 20 years.
NASA is preparing for an ambitious journey to Mars in 2030. The monumental space exploration does not only concern NASA, but it has also ignited the drive for space scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs to develop space technology dedicated to developing habitations on Mars. One of them is a startup called RedWorks who is developing a 3-D printing system to build homes on the Red planet.
Super-Earths may want to back off a bit. A new study revealed a new class of planets outside our own solar system with atmospheres stripped away by their host stars.
Researchers from the University of Cape Town and University of Western Cape have accidentally discovered a mysterious alignment of super massive black holes in a distant universe.
Mars will soon begin its retrograde motion on Saturday, April 16. During its retrograde motion, It will seem like Mars is going on reverse.

Ground control to Major Sam! Sam the dog is on the loose -- not just in any dog park, but after his trip to the edge of space.
Mayday, mayday! We have trouble in space. NASA's exoplanet hunter, Kepler, which is stationed 75 million miles away from home, malfunctions. In a routine scheduled contact, the Kepler entered into Emergency Mode, alarming NASA's engineers.
BEAM me up, Scotty! NASA recently partnered with the private company Bigelow Aerospace to develop the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, also known as BEAM. Launched into space this Friday, it's an inflatable inhabitation module that can help provide astronauts with "safe and sustainable space living quarters, workspaces and laboratories."
Monster black holes can usually be found at the core of very large galaxies and is rarely seen in the center of a galaxy in a sparsely populated area in the universe. The is the reason why researchers at NASA were shocked when they uncovered a massive black hole weighing about 17 billion suns in the center of NGC 1600.
