Washington D.C. [USA], June 24 (ANI): Understanding how planets form is one of the main challenges scientists face when placing our own and other planetary systems in context. Planets are thought to form from the disk-shaped clouds of gas and dust that surround newborn stars, but this pro
Ontario/London [Canada/ UK], June 24 (ANI): Western astronomers may have spotted six new moons orbiting planets in solar systems far from our own - an otherworldly discovery so rare it must wait on future technologies to confirm. Until then, however, the mere possibility of the find sparks e
New York [USA], June 23 (ANI): Breakthrough Listen - the initiative to find signs of intelligent life in the universe, on Tuesday released an innovative catalogue of 'Exotica' -- a diverse list of objects of potential interest to astronomers searching for technosignatures.
