It was found that stars with variable light intensity influence the production of the interstellar dust and its enrichment in heavy elements from which life was created
For the first time, the temperature of a rocky planet was measured, as well as a planet similar to Jupiter but containing large amounts of heavy elements
Many astronomers think they are emitted by neutron stars. The density and magnetic field strength of these very compact stars are unique in the universe. Now they have become a tool that measures the concentration of dark atoms in the galaxies it passes through
The redshift of this galaxy reaches 9.51 meaning that it was seen when the age of the universe was only 550 million years old. The rate of star formation in it is 10 times greater than the Milky Way
Webb recorded what remained after the death of a star only 11 thousand light years away from us. It is a relatively new supernova - only 350 years old
An international team, which includes a group of researchers from Tel Aviv University, has identified the first black hole, Gaia BH1, which is 1500 light years from Earth
Gravitational wave analysis hints at the way black hole pairs are formed
A "Medusa Galaxy" with trailing star tentacles hangs in inky darkness in this image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope
The study, published in the Astrophysical Journal, was led by researchers from the University of Arizona and the California Institute of Technology. The team used data from NASA's Kepler space telescope launched in 2009 to search for exoplanets, or planets orbiting stars other than our sun
A team of scientists made a drastic announcement about one of the most accurate measurements to date of the distribution of matter in the universe using, among other things, the radio telescope at the South Pole
The radiation originates in binary stars that have merged after being ejected from their galaxy. Usually bursts that do not occur within a galaxy last a few seconds. In such eruptions, heavy elements including gold and platinum are formed
The new hypothetical particles may be able to explain the observations made by the Cosmic Source Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope
Previous infrared studies of the NGC 346 nebula have focused on stellar embryos heavier than five to eight times the mass of our Sun. With the help of the Web, it is possible to reach even lighter protostars, as small as a tenth of our sun
However, the conditions there are more reminiscent of Venus than Earth. It orbits a red dwarf in an orbit that lasts only two days * Webb was able to confirm the existence of the planet after only two orbits
A computerized system classifies the atmospheres of planets outside the solar system. and determines which of them are capable of sustaining human settlement in the future
Researchers at the Faculty of Physics at the Technion present surprising discoveries regarding the development of the rings around the "Southern Ring Nebula"
A team of researchers from Harvard University, MIT and Calcutta in collaboration with Google successfully simulated a traversable wormhole with the help of a quantum computer. The experiment performed on Google's quantum processor demonstrated the passage of information in the interlaced system. According to the principle of holography, the physics demonstrated in the experiment is the same as that of particles passing through wormholes. Although it was conducted on only nine qubits, the experiment is of great importance because it illustrates for the first time the possibility of testing quantum gravity with the help of entangled systems.
According to the groundbreaking findings, the first galaxies were small and dim. They were dimmer than galaxies today, converting only less than 5% of their gas into stars. Also, the first galaxies did not emit much higher intensity radio radiation than we see today
One of these galaxies is observed as it appeared about 300 million years after the Big Bang and shines much brighter than expected. This figure now makes researchers estimate that the first galaxies were formed 100 million years after the Big Bang. "It's like an archaeological dig, when you suddenly find a lost city or something you didn't know about," said one of the researchers
Researchers who have examined whether Einstein's theory of gravity works on the largest possible scale claim that there are deviations that need to be checked and corrected similar to those at small distances that can be answered using quantum theory
Researchers simulated the harsh ionizing radiation conditions of Mars to see how long freeze-dried bacteria and fungi could survive
Cardiff University researchers have detected a strange twisting motion in the orbits of two colliding black holes, an exotic phenomenon predicted by Einstein's theory of gravity
New technologies could enable the discovery of technological markers from intelligent beings on distant planets
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope captured a rich and highly detailed view of the "Pillars of Creation." A region where new stars form within dense clouds of gas and dust that was previously captured in an iconic image by the Hubble Space Telescope at the start of its operation and returned to after upgrades, along with Strong landmasses
