"In the time it takes you to drink a cup of coffee, hundreds of FRBs may have gone off somewhere in the Universe," said Avi Loeb, at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who recently speculated that these signals may be... Continue reading

In September 2016, just before the asteroid 288P made its closest approach to the Sun, it was close enough to Earth to allow astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope to observe the intriguing characteristics of an unusual type of object... Continue reading

Not one but two gigantic black holes, separated by less than 1 light-year and together harbor about 40 million times the mass of the sun, lurk at the heart of the distant spiral galaxy NGC 7674, which lies about 400... Continue reading

Astrophysicist Paul Davies at Arizona State University suggests that advanced technology might not even be made of matter. That it might have no fixed size or shape; have no well-defined boundaries. Is dynamical on all scales of space and time.... Continue reading

“How can you really compare these great events in the geologic past, which occur over such vast timescales, to what’s going on today, which is centuries at the longest?” says MIT geophysicist Daniel Rothman. “So I sat down one summer... Continue reading

The Milky Way, which is home to Earth and its solar system, is host to several dozen smaller galaxy satellites. These smaller galaxies orbit around the Milky Way and are useful in understanding the Milky Way itself. Early results from... Continue reading

"Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven't identified a possible natural source with any confidence," said theorist Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. "An artificial origin is... Continue reading

Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of... Continue reading

Thanks to the ALMA Observatory in Chile we can finally see cold ‘star dust’ as it forms, revealing important insights into the original star itself, Supernova 1987A, and the way supernovas create the basic building blocks of planets. Deep inside... Continue reading

"Those supernovae are natural accelerators of particles, therefore the perfect laboratory to study charge particles and plasma in conditions that are not possible in our labs in Earth", remarks Daniel Galindo, working at Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University... Continue reading

Could the flapping of a butterfly's wings in Costa Rica set off a hurricane in California? The question has been scrutinized by chaos theorists, stock-market analysts and weather forecasters for decades. For most people, this hypothetical scenario may be difficult... Continue reading

During almost four years of observing the cosmos, the Herschel Space Observatory traced out the presence of water. With its unprecedented sensitivity and spectral resolution at key wavelengths, Herschel revealed this crucial molecule in star-forming molecular clouds, detected it for... Continue reading

NASA and NOAA satellites have provided data on Maria as it strengthened into a major Hurricane headed toward the Leeward Islands. NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Maria that showed cooling cloud top temperatures and NOAA's GOES satellite... Continue reading

NASA astrobiologists say that we must recognize that life on Enceladus or other alien bodies may have originated by a process very different from the process by which life emerged on Earth. Alternatively, alien life may have originated in the... Continue reading

The quantum computer has the potential to revolutionize the 21st century, solving problems so massively complex th today’s computers would take a century to solve. But a single quantum computer is still no match for the more than billion classical... Continue reading

"All life is born of chaos." So begins the new Star Trek epic. Critics are raving that Star Trek: Discovery will Be the next ‘Game of Thrones’ that could go where no TV show has gone before. As the starships... Continue reading

Whether Martian life has ever existed is still unknown. No compelling evidence for it has been found. When Curiosity landed in Mars' Gale Crater in 2012, the mission's main goal was to determine whether the area ever offered a habitable... Continue reading

Identical twins are similar to each other in many ways, but they have different experiences, friends, and lifestyles. This concept is played out on a cosmological scale by galaxies. Two galaxies that appear at first glance to be very similar... Continue reading

Aubrey de Grey is convinced that he has formulated the theoretical means by which human beings might live indefinitely --in fact , that there is someone alive today who will live to be a thousand years old.In his non-fiction bestseller,... Continue reading

The beginning of our universe – if there is one – is one of the big open questions in theoretical physics. The big bang is one of science’s great mysteries, and it seems the plot has thickened thanks to new... Continue reading

A new study evaluating models of future climate scenarios has led to the creation of the new risk categories "catastrophic" and "unknown" to characterize the range of threats posed by rapid global warming. Researchers propose that unknown risks imply existential... Continue reading
