American Astronomical Society president calls for "respectful discourse"
The quartet of active galaxies reside in one of the most massive structures ever discovered in the distant universe and is surrounded by a giant nebula of cool dense gas.
Scientists have not determined how the boulder seen in Rosetta images came to perch on the rim of a small depression.
Physicists show that quasiparticles are very good at removing heat
The study of white dwarf migration in globular cluster 47 Tucanae challenges some of the ideas about how and when a star loses mass near the end of its life.
A new study reveals that the amount of X-rays from magnetar SGR 1745-2900 is dropping more slowly than other previously observed magnetars, and its surface is hotter than expected.
Tiny transistor reveals electrons marching two by two
Researchers have found that levels of metals contained in dead galaxies provide key “fingerprints,” making it possible to determine the cause of death.
New data from the Fermi telescope suggests the precise mechanism that led to the absence of antimatter.
New realization of "slow light" could make quantum memories easier to manufacture
This new class may harbor either unexpected amounts of dark matter or massive black holes.
The laboratory find suggests the moon’s ocean is interacting with its rocky seafloor.
Now the spacecraft will begin its first search for new moons or rings that might threaten its passage through the Pluto system.
Logarithmic spirals could further our understanding of light
Dawn scientists can now conclude that the intense brightness of these spots is due to the reflection of sunlight by highly reflective material on the surface, possibly ice.
Astronomers have found the best proof yet that the mechanism that triggers core-collapse supernovae is inherently lopsided.
New analyses suggest that there is no new physics in high-energy neutrino data
The discovery wouldn’t have been possible without the spacecraft flying incredibly close to the planet in the months before impact.
Though plentiful in and around many galaxies, newborn examples of globular cluster are vanishingly rare and the conditions necessary to create new ones have never been detected until now.
