In a distant galaxy, the supermassive black hole's intermittent gas fluxes led to the discovery of a smaller black hole in its orbit
In interstellar molecular clouds, large molecules can form despite the non-ideal conditions prevailing there
The facility, named JUNO, consists of a huge tank that surrounds an array of detectors. The container contains a substance that causes a scintillation which is recorded in the detectors and thus allows to identify a neutrino event, its type and mass, since the neutrino particles change
Researchers in Germany have developed an artificial intelligence capable of postulating physical theories by identifying patterns in complex data sets and after being fed all known physics
This galaxy experienced a tumultuous and fast life: the star formation process worked quickly and suddenly ended, a situation that is not expected at such an early stage in the evolution of the universe. It is still not clear if the "frozen" state of the galaxy
New research from the Larkach Institute of Physics reveals a significant advance in chaos theory, by confirming in detail the flux-based statistical theory that predicts chaotic outcomes in non-hierarchical Newtonian three-body systems. This breakthrough lies
For the first time, NASA activated a tool designed to discover planets many light years away on an object in the solar system, in a study of the winds of Jupiter
The discovery of an S-shaped galaxy could revolutionize the understanding of the process of star formation
"Astronomers discover that the fastest radio burst ever observed came not from a single galaxy, but from a group of merging galaxies"
Researchers have discovered that the star cluster IRS13 near the supermassive black hole SagittariusA* at the center of our galaxy is much younger than predicted
Professor Zvi Piren, head of the Schwartzman Chair at the Rakah Institute of Physics at the Hebrew University and Professor Amir Levinson from Tel Aviv University will take part in a research group of the prestigious Simmons Foundation as part of an international collaboration
"These interactions between the Sun's coronal mass ejections and interplanetary dust were theorized twenty years ago, but were not observed until the Parker Solar Probe saw that the coronal ejection acts like a vacuum cleaner.
A Sun-like star located in a galaxy roughly 500 million light-years away is being gradually devoured by a black hole, shedding a mass equal to three Earths on each close pass.
Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory discovered that the star HD 45166 is a neutron star about to become a megastar
The brown dwarf is part of a new pair system that may advance our understanding of the evolution of stars and planets under extreme radiation conditions
A highly unusual burst of high-energy light from a nearby galaxy is linked by scientists to a neutron star merger
Gravitational wave analysis hints at the way black hole pairs are formed
Astronomers have applied artificial intelligence (AI) to ultra-wide-field images of the deep universe as captured by Japan's Subaru Telescope, achieving very high accuracy for detecting and classifying spiral galaxies in the images
