Washington D.C. [USA], April 24 (ANI): NASA is celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope's 30 years of unlocking the beauty and mystery of space by unveiling a stunning new portrait of a firestorm of star birth in a neighbouring galaxy.
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.

Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 29 (ANI): University of British Columbia (UBC) astronomy student Michelle Kunimoto has discovered 17 new planets, including a potentially habitable, Earth-sized world, by combing through data gathered by NASA's Kepler mission.
Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 19 (ANI): NASA's Juno mission has provided its first science results on the amount of water in Jupiter's atmosphere. Published recently in the journal Nature Astronomy, the Juno results estimate that at the equator, water makes up about 0.25 per cent of the molecul

Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 25 (ANI): Astronomers have discovered a 'vampire' star in the midst of a feeding frenzy, with the help of an automated program that is sifting through archived data from the decommissioned Kepler Space Telescope.
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 23 (ANI): New astronomy research from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) suggests that giant planets could form around small stars much faster than previously thought.
Heidelberg [Germany], Jan 14 (ANI): A research team from the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy has recently gained insights about the origin of material present in the spiral arms of Milky Way Galaxy.
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 14 (ANI): The dwarf galaxy Gaia-Enceladus collided with the Milky Way probably approximately 11.5 billion years ago. The Milky Way has encountered several other galaxies in its 13.5 billion-year history. One of them is the dwarf galaxy Gaia-Enceladus. To understand
Washington D.C [USA], Jan 11 (ANI): A new hint towards finding out the early history of galaxy formation comes up as the astronomers discover 13 new black holes in some dwarf galaxies which are not more than a billion light-years away from our planet.
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 8 (ANI): Astronomers from Harvard University have found the presence of a wave-shaped gaseous structure named 'Radcliffe Wave' in the Milky Way Galaxy.
