Charles Darwin University (CDU) students are joining a team of NASA-funded scientists and astronomers to observe Pluto pass in front of a distant star in Katherine on June 1.
Researchers have been able to look deeply into galactic nurseries at the heart of the young universe thanks to a wholly new instrument, a potent telescope, and a little support from nature.
Can the neutrino eyes of humanity, observatories such as the IceCube in Antarctica, really see neutrinos coming from deep space.
A world-first – or solar system-first – archaeological project has this week begun on the International Space Station.
For decades, astronomers have known that the Earth and Sun lie the Local Bubble. Now, For the first time, a team of astronomers has been able to retrace the history of this star-filled neighborhood.
An international team of scientists may have solved a key mystery about the origins of the Earth’s water, after uncovering persuasive new evidence pointing to an unlikely culprit - the Sun.
The earliest solids formed in the solar system give clues to what radioactive species were made by the young sun, and which ones were inherited. By studying isotopic variations of the elements vanadium (V) and strontium (Sr), an international team of researchers including scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found that those variations are not caused by irradiation from the sun but are produced by condensation and evaporation reactions in the early solar system.
The eROSITA space telescope has revealed its first results with tentative hints at a detailed map of the Universe’s black holes and neutron stars.
Using information obtained from around a dozen earthquakes detected on Mars by the Very Broad Band SEIS seismometer, developed in France, the international team of NASA's InSight mission has unveiled the internal structure of Mars.
Any life identified on planets orbiting white dwarf stars almost certainly evolved after the star's death, says a new study led by the University of Warwick that reveals the consequences of the intense and furious stellar winds that will batter a planet as its star is dying.
