Washington D.C. [USA], June 3 (ANI): A new ultra-bright source of X-rays has awakened in between our galactic neighbours the Magellanic Clouds, after a 26-year slumber. This is the second-closest such object known to date, with a brightness greater than a million Suns.

Washington DC [USA], May 29 (ANI): The ALICE collaboration has presented new results on the production rates of antideuterons based on data collected at the highest collision energy delivered so far at the Large Hadron Collider.
Washington D.C. [USA], May 27 (ANI): Five years after NASA's MAVEN spacecraft entered into orbit around Mars, data from the mission has led to the creation of a map of electric current systems in the Martian atmosphere.
Washington D.C.[USA], May 25 (ANI): The formation of the Sun, the Solar System and the subsequent emergence of life on Earth may be a consequence of a collision between our galaxy, the Milky Way, and a smaller galaxy called Sagittarius, discovered in the 1990s to be orbiting our galactic hom

Washington DC [USA], May 19 (ANI): After examining a dozen types of suns and a roster of planet surfaces, Cornell University astronomers have developed a practical model -- an environmental colour "decoder" -- to tease out climate clues for potentially habitable exoplanets in galaxies far aw
Washington DC [USA], May 19 (ANI): Scientists have long suspected that the 'fire-breathing' volcanoes that spread large quantities of flowing lava over Mars were not the only kind. The numerous mountain cones in the northern hemisphere of the Red Planet may be the result of mud volcanoes.

Washington D.C. [USA], May 11 (ANI): Several recent observations of Mars have hinted that it might presently harbour liquid water, a requirement for life as we know it. However, in a new paper in Nature Astronomy, a team of researchers have shown that stable liquids on present-day Mars are n
Washington D.C. [USA], May 11 (ANI): Several hundred million years ago, two galaxy clusters collided and then passed through each other. This mighty event released a flood of hot gas from each galaxy cluster that formed an unusual bridge between the two objects. This bridge is now being pumm

Washington D.C. [USA], April 23 (ANI): A new study has identified the first known permanent population of asteroids originating from outside our Solar System. The objects are believed to have been captured from other stars billions of years ago and have been orbiting our Sun in disguise ever
Washington D.C. [USA], April 23 (ANI): Have you ever wondered what kind of rocks make up those bright and dark splotches on the moon? Well, the USGS has just released a new authoritative map to help explain the 4.5-billion-year-old history of our nearest neighbour in space.
