There's a star system nearby that could be a glimpse in the ancient past.
NASA released the uncalibrated raw data from its observation of the newly identified star system, Trappist-1. Users will have to do some reformatting to interpret the data.
A rare line-up of stars called gravitational lensing that will occur in 2028 may be the best opportunity to search for alien life.
Heartbeat stars discovered by Kepler telescope are instrumental in studying tidal forces and the activities that affect the orbit of binary star systems.
A "brutal" behavior between a white dwarf star and a red dwarf star in a far away binary star system has been observed for the first time by using ground-based and space-based telescopes to observe the phenomena.
An exoplanet with three suns was recently discovered by a group of scientists from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics using the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT).
The Hubble Space Telescope recently captured detailed images of Twin Jet Nebula, which has recently ejected its outer layers, and illuminated them, signifying it is in its final stages of life.
Near the Milky Way, 30 million light years from Earth, a comprehensive survey from an Australia-based telescope has turned up bright collisions of stars and learning potential.
Complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life, have been discovered in an infant star system for the first time, according to new research.
In a first, this week an international team of astronomers reported watching the birth of a multiple-star system in action, shedding light on the mysterious beginnings of star and planet formation.
