Ultralow-field device could aid soldiers and developing-world field hospitals
The space telescope has observed a baffling X-ray glow at the heart of the Milky Way that could involve different classes of stellar corpses.
New observations demonstrate how the different dusty pillars of this iconic object are distributed in space and reveal many new details, including a previously unseen jet from a young star.
After a mission of nearly 11 years, the spacecraft has run out of fuel and will smash into the planet's surface at about 3:26 p.m. EDT.
"Throwaway data" from radio telescopes help physicists peer into clouds
The team discovered the planets by detecting a wobble of the star HD 7924 as a result of the gravitational pull of the planets orbiting around it.
Scientists interpreted the latest image data to reveal that the dwarf planet has broad surface markings – some bright, some dark – including a bright area at one pole that may be a polar cap.
Despite young molecular clouds containing far less oxygen than the Sun, theorists still found as much water vapor in the early universe as we see in the Milky Way today.
Search of 100,000 galaxies fails to find waste heat of advanced civilizations
Observations revealed new properties of the first exoplant ever discovered around a normal star — 51 Pegasi b.
Studies show that supernovae with strong engines and lighter particles produce gamma-ray bursts.
