Just like the familiar maps we use to navigate our own neighborhoods and cities, astronomers develop maps of the galaxy too! Using the power of several telescopes across Japan, astronomers have teased out some new insights as to the precise location of the Earth within our Milky Way Galaxy.
New observations from the National Science Foundation’s NOIRLab and other telescopes have found a planet that doesn’t quite match how astronomers expected planets to form.
Using the VLBA, the National Science Foundation’s Very Long Baseline Array of radio telescopes, astronomers have found a Saturn-sized planet orbiting a small, cool star that’s only 35 light years away!
Today we have a story about a mischievous star is located 75 million light-years away in the Kinman Dwarf Galaxy. #spacescoop @unawe #365daysofastro
In the accretion disc of AB Aurigae, astronomers observed a clear overall spiral structure with a little twist or a spiral kink in the accretion disc that marks the spot where a planet may be forming.
Imagine standing on the planet Tatooine from Star Wars and seeing two suns in the sky. Planets and stars also have their own geometry, but sometimes the answer doesn’t add up. Check today’s #spacescoop by @unawe with @RichardDrumm
In an exciting discovery, water vapor has been found in the atmosphere of a distant exoplanet planet known as K2-18b, which is 110 light years from Earth in the constellation Leo.
Collecting stuff is fun but it can also tell you something about the things you’re collecting. One of the collection are pictures of stars explosion.
The South Pole is a hostile environment; it’s a frozen desert but for the last 8 years, scientist try to look for this answers: What shoots beams of tiny, almost undetectable particles at Earth?
