The Webb telescope has observed what appear to be young methane deposits on the surface of Eris and Maki Maki
The discovery of an S-shaped galaxy could revolutionize the understanding of the process of star formation
A newly discovered solar system with six confirmed extrasolar planets and a possible seventh increases astronomers' knowledge of star formation and evolution
Beta Pictoris is a solar system in the making and relatively close so that the gas disks can be seen. It turns out that Webb was able to discover a structure that was not noticed in photographs with less sensitive instruments, thus he discovered a disk of gas tilted from our main disk and because of our vantage point it looks like a cat's tail
"Astronomers discover that the fastest radio burst ever observed came not from a single galaxy, but from a group of merging galaxies"
Among the observations of about two million distant galaxies, the researchers found several thousand supernovae, and this is the largest and deepest sample of supernovae ever obtained with a single telescope. The scientists then used advanced machine learning techniques to help classify the supernovae
The two-dimensional reflection of the galaxies in the night sky does not say much about the real distances between the galaxies and between them and the Earth
Astrophysicists have discovered why spiral galaxies like our Milky Way are rare in the supergalactic plane, a dense region of our local universe
Jupiter, the largest planet by far in our solar system, plays an important protective role. Its enormous gravitational field deflects comets and asteroids that might otherwise hit Earth, helping to create a stable environment for life to exist. But giant planets elsewhere in the universe don't necessarily protect life in their smaller, rocky neighbors.
An international team of astronomers discovered a system of six planets orbiting the star HD110067 in a unique harmonic resonance
The European Space Agency's Gaia mission discovered over half a million new stars, tagged 150,000 asteroids, and identified 380 cosmic lenses. These discoveries advance our understanding of the universe, setting the stage for the expected release of Gaia DR4 data in 2025
It has been 30 years since a group of scientists led by Carl Sagan found evidence of life on Earth using data from instruments aboard NASA's Galileo space probe and only combining instruments while ignoring existing knowledge made this possible
Researchers have found that the star cluster IRS13 near the supermassive black hole SagittariusA* at the center of our galaxy is much younger than predicted
The cause of this is a distorted dark matter halo
The TESS space telescope discovered a planet that survived a merger between two stars as the merged star swelled to become a red giant
The BlueWalker 3 satellite whose antenna area is 64 square meters has become one of the brightest objects in the night sky, the fear is that when there are a hundred satellites in this constellation and hundreds in other constellations it will be impossible to observe the sky in the optical field and there will also be interference to the radio field
The Ring Nebula, formed by a star shedding its outer layers, is a classic example of a planetary nebula and is also relatively close to us.
This end-of-life phase of red giant stars is relatively short, and the celestial structures that form around them are rare, so the Tobi Pitcher Nebula is an excellent example of a case study in the evolution of a star
The galaxy is currently 25 billion light-years away, but when light began to travel from it to us about 12.5 billion years ago, it was much closer, because the universe is expanding
The innovative design comes with special features to support the astronauts as they conduct scientific experiments on the surface of the moon as well as the women who will be one of the first crew to land. NASA hopes to have the updated suit ready for the Artemis III moon mission in 2025
The researchers developed an amplifier - a medium containing atoms that the photon coming from space passes through after the telescope key. The impact of the photon on the atom forces the atom to release a large number of photons identical to the original photon. The improvement in resolution will benefit any telescope, especially for medium-sized telescopes, and in particular for space telescopes
To the postdoctoral student Dr. Valery Frumkin. Dr. Frumkin developed the winning technology and wrote an article on this topic during his research in Prof. Moran Berkovich's laboratory at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, and so far two patents have been filed on the subject.
At the time of conjunction, both planets will be seen in the west direction, just after sunset over the southwestern horizon close to the setting sun. The next closest cluster - in March 2080 * And how does this relate to the way we discover planets outside the solar system?
Studies that started with a certain direction and ended up in completely different places
Astronomers have applied artificial intelligence (AI) to ultra-wide-field images of the deep universe as taken by Japan's Subaru Telescope, achieving very high accuracy for detecting and classifying spiral galaxies in these images. This technique, combined with citizen scientists, is expected to yield more discoveries in the future
