To date there have been no convincing direct detections of Pop III stars - the first stars, because these stars formed in the early universe are very far away and too faint for our ground-based telescopes or
WASP-193b, an unusually low-density giant planet orbiting a distant Sun-like star. It is about 1,200 light-years away from Earth and 50% larger than Jupiter, but seven times less massive
Methane found in WASP-107 b reveals core mass and stormy sky
Researchers have developed a method for mapping the central regions around black holes, which contributes to a better understanding of their growth
A team of researchers led by Dr. Assaf Hochman from the Hebrew University revealed the role of ozone in shaping the atmospheric dynamics of Proxima Centauri b. Their findings, derived from advanced models of climate chemistry and advanced theories of
The SPECULOOS project revealed the existence of an Earth-sized planet around SPECULOOS-3, a nearby star similar in size to Jupiter and twice as cold as our Sun
A NASA astrophysicist has developed immersive simulations of a black hole using a supercomputer. These visuals illustrate two scenarios: a last-minute escape or crossing the event horizon and falling into the black hole
James Webb Space Telescope observations of galaxies in the young universe revealed that the first light in space came from bright young stars
The analysis of the signal GW230529 picked up by LIGO shows that it originated from the merger of two compact objects, one with a mass between 1.2 and 2.0 times that of the Sun and the other with a mass slightly more than twice the first
A new study reveals details of an unknown class of galaxies called compact compact objects (CSOs) that emit jets moving in opposite directions at speeds close to the speed of light
The plan is to place five small satellites in space close to the Webb Space Telescope. Together these telescopes will act as a large telescope that will be used as an interferometer to receive infrared heat radiation from extrasolar planets. finding life
Professor Maza studied planets outside the solar system and even developed a method for discovering planets that allows expanding the search circle
The CSOs emit jets for 5,000 years or less and then die out. "The CSO jets are very energetic jets but they seem to end, the jets stop flowing from the source
In a distant galaxy, the supermassive black hole's intermittent gas fluxes led to the discovery of a smaller black hole in its orbit
In interstellar molecular clouds, large molecules can form despite the non-ideal conditions prevailing there
Scientists used Bayesian network analysis to study how scientific discoveries influence science fiction literature
A research partnership between theoretical physicists and computational physicists at the University of Virginia that may offer new insight into the possibility of a theory of everything or, at the very least, a better understanding of gravity, one of the fundamental forces of
According to the new paper, in some white dwarfs, the dense plasma in the interior doesn't simply freeze from the inside out. Instead, the solid crystals that form upon freezing are less dense than the liquid, and therefore want to float, then push
Researchers studying the Orion Nebula with the James Webb Space Telescope found that ultraviolet radiation from massive stars prevents the formation of giant planets in young systems by scattering the building materials.
A new study, led by the UK's University of Bath, has found that supermassive black holes need both merging galaxies and cold gas to grow. This discovery, obtained through machine learning, may change our understanding of
This is according to the Dark Energy Survey Partnership, of which University College London is a founding member, hosts the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in the United States and includes more than 400 scientists from 25 institutions in 7 countries
Researchers in Germany have developed an artificial intelligence capable of postulating physical theories by identifying patterns in complex data sets and after being fed all known physics
This galaxy experienced a tumultuous and fast life: the star formation process worked quickly and suddenly ended, a situation that is not expected at such an early stage in the evolution of the universe. It is still not clear if the "frozen" state of the galaxy
