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.
Washington D.C. [USA], June 18 (ANI): Astronomers have reported the first detection of X-rays from the earliest phase of the evolution of a star like our Sun. This discovery, made using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, may help answer some questions about the Sun and the solar system as the
Washington DC [USA], June 18 (ANI): Astronomers discovered a remarkable neutron star known as Swift J1818.0-1607, which according to the new study is only about 240 years old -- a veritable newborn by cosmic standards.

Washington D.C. [USA], June 16 (ANI): When Jocelyn Bell first observed the emissions of a pulsar in 1967, the rhythmic pulses of radio waves so confounded astronomers that they considered whether the light could be signals sent by an alien civilization.
Bonn [Germany], June 11 (ANI): An international research team including astronomers from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) in Bonn determined with extremely high precision that gravity causes neutron stars and white dwarf stars to fall with equal accelerations.

Washington DC [USA], June 8 (ANI): Astronomers acting on a hunch have likely resolved a mystery about young, still-forming stars and regions rich in organic molecules closely surrounding some of them.
Honolulu [Hawaii], June 5 (ANI): While the world has been dealing with the corona virus pandemic, researchers at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy (IfA) have been hard at work studying the solar corona, the outermost atmosphere of the Sun which expands into interplanetary spac

Washington D.C. [USA], June 2 (ANI): Astronomers have peered into the home galaxies of fast radio bursts, ruling out supermassive black holes as a cause and bringing us a step closer to understanding the origins of these mysterious signals from outer space.
Honolulu [Hawaii], June 2 (ANI): Determined to find a needle in a cosmic haystack, a pair of astronomers time traveled through archives of old data from W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea in Hawaii and old X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to unlock a mystery surrounding a bri
Melbourne [Australia], June 2 (ANI): A Monash-University-led collaboration has, for the first time, observed the full 12-day process of material spiralling into a distant neutron star, triggering an X-Ray outburst thousands of times brighter than our Sun.

Washington D.C. [USA], May 29 (ANI): Astronomers have caught a black hole hurling hot material into space at close to the speed of light. This flare-up was captured in a new movie from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.
Washington D.C. [USA], May 27 (ANI): Giant planets in our solar system and circling other stars have exotic clouds unlike anything on Earth, and the gas giants orbiting close to their stars -- so-called hot Jupiters -- boast the most extreme.
