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.
These motions were measured by analyzing 10 years of observations from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
New research indicates that if neutron stars have mountains, they are fractions of a millimeter in height.
The final stage of cataclysmic explosions of dying massive stars, called supernovae, could pack an up to six times bigger punch on the surrounding interstellar gas with the help of cosmic rays, according to a new study led by researchers at the University of Oxford.
An international team anchored by the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration, which is known for capturing the first image of a black hole in the galaxy Messier 87, has now imaged the heart of the nearby radio galaxy Centaurus A in unprecedented detail.
A team of astronomers has released new observations of nearby galaxies that resemble colourful cosmic fireworks.
An international research team led by YAO Zhonghua from the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has explained the cause of Jupiter's X-ray aurorae, a mystery that has puzzled scientists for 40 years.
New models of neutron stars show that their tallest mountains may be only fractions of millimetres high, due to the huge gravity on the ultra-dense objects. The research is presented today at the National Astronomy Meeting 2021.
