Supermassive black holes, or SMBHs, are black holes with masses that are several million to billion times the mass of our sun.
The long relationships between stars and the planets around them - including the Sun and the Earth - may be even more complex than previously thought.
Greenhouse gases and pollutants as well as natural causes such as volcanic eruptions have an impact on the Earth's atmosphere.
Solar flares jetting out from the sun and thunderstorms generated on Earth impact the planet's ionosphere in different ways, which have implications for the ability to conduct long range communications.
Research combining systematic observations with cosmological simulations has found that, surprisingly, black holes can help certain galaxies form new stars.

Four planets locked in a perfect rhythm around a nearby star are destined to be pinballed around their solar system when their sun eventually dies, according to a study led by the University of Warwick that peers into its future.
Orbiting a red dwarf in our galactic neighborhood, the small and cool exoplanet TOI-1231 b could offer astronomers a unique target for investigations of alien worlds.
Observations quadruple the number of known radio bursts and reveal two types: one-offs and repeaters.
