Tucson [Arizona], April 21 (ANI): Astronomers have found out that what was thought to be a planet beyond our solar system has now seemingly vanished from sight, suggesting that what was heralded as one of the first exoplanets to ever be discovered with direct imaging likely never existed.
California [USA], April 20 (ANI): Though mighty, the Milky Way and galaxies of similar mass are not without scars chronicling turbulent histories.
California [USA], April 20 (ANI): Astronomers have shown that clusters of supernovas can cause the birth of scattered, eccentrically orbiting suns in outer stellar halos of Milky Way, upending commonly held notions of how star systems have formed and evolved over billions of years.
