One of the favorite topics of our news is about moon landing. So, on this day (on September 20, 1970) the Soviet Union's Luna 16 moon probe landed on the moon.
Studies using X-ray and ultraviolet observations from NASA’s Swift satellite provide new insights into the elusive origins of an important class of exploding star called Type Ia supernovae. These explosions, which can outshine their galaxy for weeks, release large and consistent amounts of energy at visible wavelengths. These qualities make them among the most valuable tools for measuring distance in the universe.View More Origin of Important Supernova Class
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.View More New Explanations an Extraordinarily Powerful and Mysteriously Long Lasting Explosion in Space

The Swift satellite observed a string of extremely bright bursts of gamma rays from outside our galaxy that began March 25 and lasted about two days.View More Black Holes is Eating Massive Star
With the help their new studies astronomers discovered the second monster black hole at the center of the galaxy, called Markarian 739, which is about 425 million light-years from Earth, located in the constellation Leo, and which presence was revealed in observations by NASA’s Swift satellite and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory.View More Supermassive Black Hole Twins
With the help NASAs Swift satellite astronomers was observed the object which can be potentially the farthest object yet detected in space Scientists think that this gamma-ray burst was place it at around 13.14 billion light-years away.View More The Farthest Object of the Universe
