Observations gathered by Kepler have revolutionized scientists’ understand of exoplanets, as well as many other aspects of our universe.
In a series of new studies, scientists detail the complexities of the planet’s gravity, atmosphere, and polar cyclones.
Astronomers have detected hydrogen formed just 180 million years after the Big Bang. But the gas is much colder than theoretical predictions.
UNLV geoscientists formed analogue clay minerals in a lab, which suggest that, if organic matter is present on Mars, it might not be well preserved.
Boston University astronomers suggest searching for charged oxygen in the ionospheres of exoplanets as an alternative method for finding extraterrestrial life.
Researchers have developed the most advanced model of the universe, called IllustrisTNG, which will advance understanding of how galaxies form and evolve.
Satellite galaxies are assumed to be widely distributed around their host and move in random directions. But that’s not what astronomers found when they observed Centaurus A.
The agency’s Kilopower project meets several important criteria: It’s powerful enough to fuel habitats, life-support systems, and other equipment, yet remains small and lightweight.
The Xinjiang Qitai 110-meter Radio Telescope — QTT, for short — could help advance research on dark matter, gravitational waves, and extraterrestrial intelligence.
Found in Egypt in 1996, the stone contains pre-solar grains that could indicate it originated outside of our solar system.
