Washington [US], September 23 (ANI): The center of our Milky Way galaxy is too distant for us to visit in person, but we can still explore it. Telescopes give us a chance to see what the galactic center looks like in different types of light. By translating the inherently digital data (in th

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

New Mexico [USA], June 11 (ANI): A new set of precision distance measurements made with an international collection of radio telescopes have greatly increased the likelihood that theorists need to revise the 'standard model' that describes the fundamental nature of the universe.

New York [USA], April 30 (ANI): The next generation of powerful Earth- and space-based telescopes will be able to hunt distant solar systems for evidence of life on Earth-like exoplanets -- particularly those that chaperone burned-out stars known as white dwarfs.
Washington D.C. [USA], April 28 (ANI): The universe is full of billions of galaxies -- but their distribution across space is far from uniform. Why do we see so much structure in the universe today, and how did it all form and grow?

Washington D.C. [USA], April 14 (ANI): A blazar is a particular type of active galactic nucleus (AGN) with a central supermassive black hole which emits a jet, a flux of highly energetic particles and radiation moving almost at the velocity of light, and which is aligned along the observe

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 19 (ANI): Ever imagined a camera that can count photons, or particles of light and further aid in searching for chemical signs of life on other planets or dark matter? Well, this device is now a reality!
