Hawaii [US], August 18 (ANI): Astronomers and a team of data-sleuthing volunteers participating in Backyard Worlds: Planet 9, a citizen science project, have discovered roughly 100 cool worlds near the Sun -- objects more massive than planets but lighter than stars, known as brown dwarfs.

Washington D.C.[USA], Aug 4 (ANI): New detailed observations with NSF's NOIRLab facilities reveal a young exoplanet, orbiting a young star in the Hyades cluster, that is unusually dense for its size and age. Weighing in at 25 Earth-masses, and slightly smaller than Neptune, this exoplanet's

Washington DC [USA], July 11 (ANI): With the help of citizen scientists, astronomers have discovered two highly unusual brown dwarfs and balls of gas that are not massive enough to power themselves the way stars do.

Gottingen [Germany], June 26 (ANI): In research led by the University of Gottingen, the RedDots team of astronomers has detected a system of super-Earth planets orbiting the nearby star Gliese 887, the brightest red dwarf star in the sky.

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.

New York [USA], April 30 (ANI): The next generation of powerful Earth- and space-based telescopes will be able to hunt distant solar systems for evidence of life on Earth-like exoplanets -- particularly those that chaperone burned-out stars known as white dwarfs.
Paris [France], Apr 30 (ANI): The COVID-19 pandemic represents the biggest shock to the global energy system in more than seven decades with the drop in demand this year set to dwarf the impact of the 2008 financial crisis and result in a record annual decline in carbon emissions of almost 8

Washington D.C. [USA], April 10 (ANI): For the first time, scientists have directly measured wind speed on a brown dwarf, an object larger than Jupiter (the largest planet in our solar system) but not quite massive enough to become a star. To achieve the finding, they used a new method that
Washington D.C. [USA], April 3 (ANI): Scientists at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics announced the detection of J2322+0509, a detached binary white dwarf composed of two helium-core stars with a short orbital period. It is the first gravitational wave source of its kind ever detec
