Maryland [USA], August 5 (ANI): As Carl Sagan famously said, "We're made of star stuff" -- but how do stars distribute their essential "stuff" for life into space? NASA's telescope on an airplane, SOFIA, is finding some answers by watching pulsating stars as they expand and contract, almost
Washington D.C.[USA], Aug 4 (ANI): An international team of astronomers including Gisela Ortiz-Leon from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) in Bonn discovered a Saturn-like planet orbiting a small, cool star by detecting the "wobble" in the star's motion caused by the gravi
