New Six-Planet Solar System Found in Our Galaxy

Astronomers have discovered a rare in-sync solar system with six planets in our Galaxy, the Milky Way, which is untouched by outside forces since their birth billions of years ago. The find, announced on Nov. 29, can help explain how...

James Webb Space Telescope Uncovers Majestic New Galaxy

The vast universe holds many secrets, and the James Webb Space Telescope is on a mission to uncover some of them. Using this powerful telescope, astronomers have just discovered a brand-new galaxy called JWST-ER1. This exciting find is part of...

Mysterious Cosmic Threads from the Milky Way’s Black Hole

New observations from South Africa's MeerKAT telescope have unveiled a new discovery of numerous long strands of gas, stretching for 5 to 10 light-years, reaching out from the central black hole in our galaxy. The Space explains these strands or...

Planet-Forming Ingredients Detected in Neighboring Galaxy

New research published in Nature Astronomy on Tuesday suggests that scientists have found a way to detect the formation of planets. Researchers used infrared imaging from the James Web Space Telescope (JWST) to detect thermal radiation emitted by warm dust...

Supermassive Black Hole Faces Earth

An international team of space experts has discovered something incredible: a galaxy with some very unusual activity going on in its core, which has led to its being reclassified. The galaxy is called PBC J2333.9-2343, but after some new research,...

Astronomers Discover Metal-Rich Galaxies in Early Universe

Cornell University astronomers have made an incredible discovery in the first image captured by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST): a blob of light near the edge of SPT0418-47, one of the brightest star-forming galaxies from the early universe. Gravitational...

Radio Signal From the Most Distant Galaxy Captured by Astronomers

A radio signal has been picked up by astronomers from the most distant galaxy known to mankind with a unique wavelength known as the "21-centimeter line" or the "hydrogen line," emitted by neutral hydrogen atoms. The Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope...

Astronomers Find the Most Distant Stars in Our Galaxy

More than 200 RR Lyrae stars—distant variable stars—have been found by astronomers in the Milky Way's stellar halo. Over a million light-years separate us from the furthest of these stars. This is roughly half the distance to our nearest...

Webb Telescope Captures ‘Galaxy Merger’ 270 Million Light-Years Away

The James Webb Telescope has captured a galaxy merger; a pair of entwining galaxies crashing into one another in a new image released by NASA. The interacting galaxy system, formally known as IC 1623, lies about 270 million light-years from...

Largest-ever Map of Galaxies Demystifying Universe’s Expansion

  A new map is assisting researchers demystify the universe's expansion rate with unprecedented accuracy. One that is perhaps the largest-ever revealing over fifty-six thousand galaxies. Although the night sky may look deceivingly motionless, science has it that the universe is constantly...
