Among the structures tentatively identified in this new image are what appear to be polygonal features, a complex band of terrain stretching east-northeast across the planet, and a complex region where bright terrains meet the dark terrains of the "whale."
Researchers develop non-electric incubating blankets for use in villages
Because the galaxy the 7-billion-solar-mass black hole was discovered in is fairly typical in size, the study calls into question previous assumptions on the development of galaxies.
A proposed rule change aimed at thwarting TMT protestors could block public access to some of the most pristine dark skies on Earth.
The two worlds orbit the same gravitational point, but their similarities seem to end there.
The satellite detected the start of a new outburst from V404 Cygni, where a black hole and a Sun-like star orbit each other.
Spacecraft will soon be just 12,500 km from Pluto
A new study shows convincing evidence of the “switching on” of the active phase in a black hole at the center of galaxy NGC 660.
The New Horizons mission has officially begun the flyby sequence of science observations that will culminate with closest approach July 14.
The first KiDS survey results show how the characteristics of the observed galaxies are determined by the invisible vast clumps of dark matter surrounding them.
Whitening of yellow pigments linked to degradation of cadmium sulphide
A new study reveals that a supernova discovered after a gamma-ray burst must have been powered by a highly magnetic neutron star.
New computer simulations show that the distant planet’s magnetic field is constantly rotating and changing.
While the new maps gives mission scientists an important tool for deciphering the patterns of bright and dark markings on the distant planet's surface, they are holding off on making any interpretations of features for now.
