In this year astronomers could discover planets in other solar systems, also amateur astronomers discovered new asteroids, comets, and some comet fly at minimum distance from our planet.
According to new study the Hubble Space Telescope has spotted new evidence of complex organic molecules, the carbon-containing building blocks of life as we know it , on the frigid surface of Pluto.
Astronomers using NASA’s Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes have discovered that one of the most distant galaxies known is churning out stars at a shockingly high rate.
Nasa Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a spectacular view of a star-forming region in our Milky Way galaxy that looks like a snow angel in deep space. The bipolar star-forming region, called Sharples 2-106 (or S106 for short) is located nearly 2,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation of Cygnus (The Swan).
Astronomers have spotted the fastest rotating star yet found, a massive and bright young star located in our neighboring dwarf galax, the Large Magellanic Cloud.
Using NASA’s Spitzer space telescope, the astronomers spotted four remarkably red galaxies which are nearly 13 billion light-years from Earth, meaning it’s taken their light about 13 billion years to reach us.
The Christmas sky last year was lit up by an extraordinarily powerful and mysteriously long-lasting explosion in space that scientists now suggest was a comet smacking into a dense star or a peculiar supernova death.
When NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft reaches Pluto in July 2015, it may find the region more hazardous than anticipated. The discovery of several moons around Pluto and the potential for more increase the risks during the probe’s flyby.
NASA Hubble Space Telescope new image shows globular cluster NGC 1846, a spherical collection of hundreds of thousands of stars in the outer halo of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a neighboring dwarf galaxy of the Milky Way that can be seen from the southern hemisphere.
