A team of astronomers from the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics in Pune, and the Raman Research Institute, in Bangalore, has used the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope to measure the atomic hydrogen gas content of galaxies 9 billion years ago, in the young universe.
A research group from Kobe University has demonstrated that the heat generated by the impact of a small astronomical body could enable aqueous alteration and organic solid formation to occur on the surface of an asteroid.
Scientists have gained the best view yet of the brightest explosions in the universe: A specialised observatory in Namibia has recorded the most energetic radiation and longest gamma-ray afterglow of a so-called gamma-ray burst (GRB) to date.
The extreme environments of the atmospheres of gas giants are believed to cause droplets of liquid helium to form in the upper atmosphere and rain down upon lower levels. And now, we may have the first experimental confirmation of this phenomenon.
A new model of the local universe reveals filaments of dark matter stretching across the cosmic void and linking galaxies.
NASA launched one of its largest sounding rockets Sunday from an East Coast facility in an experiment led by a University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute space physics professor.
Mini-Neptune exoplanets could shed their atmospheres as they age, thus ‘leaping the radius gap’ and explaining why mid-sized planets seem to be missing from our catalogs.
The desire to understand space and reach beyond the limits of Earth's atmosphere has provided us with the ideal platform to study our planet and combat our most pressing challenge: climate change.
Water production on the surface of the Moon is now feasible thanks to a chemical-physical process that allows oxygen to be extracted from regolith (lunar sand).
Physicists have found a previously undiscovered phenomenon called ‘diffuse auroral erasers’ while analyzing a video of auroras recorded in 2002.
