Washington [US] October 2 (ANI): Astronomers using the GRAVITY instrument at the VLT telescopes in Chile have now obtained the first direct confirmation of an exoplanet discovered by radial velocity.
Washington [US], October 2 (ANI): Einstein's general theory of relativity -- the idea that gravity is matter warping spacetime -- has withstood over 100 years of scrutiny and testing, including the newest test by University of Arizona astrophysicists from the Event Horizon Telescope collabor

Washington [US], September 23 (ANI): The center of our Milky Way galaxy is too distant for us to visit in person, but we can still explore it. Telescopes give us a chance to see what the galactic center looks like in different types of light. By translating the inherently digital data (in th

Washington [US], September 14 (ANI): The detection more than a decade ago by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope of an excess of high-energy radiation in the centre of the Milky Way convinced some physicists that they were seeing evidence of the annihilation of dark matter particles, but a t
Washington [US], September 11 (ANI): The universe's funhouse mirrors are revealing a difference between how dark matter behaves in theory and how it appears to act in reality.
Washington D.C. [USA], September 8 (ANI): A radio telescope in outback Western Australia has completed the deepest and broadest search at low frequencies for alien technologies, scanning a patch of sky known to include at least 10 million stars.

Washington DC [US], Aug 28 (ANI): In a landmark study, scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have mapped the immense envelope of gas, called a halo, surrounding the Andromeda galaxy, our nearest large galactic neighbour.
Washington D.C. [USA], August 26 (ANI): Fifty potential planets have had their existence confirmed by a new machine learning algorithm developed by the University of Warwick scientists.

Garching [Germany], August 14 (ANI): New observations by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope suggest that the unexpected dimming of the supergiant star Betelgeuse was most likely caused by an immense amount of hot material ejected into space, forming a dust cloud that blocked starlight comin

Maryland [USA], August 5 (ANI): As Carl Sagan famously said, "We're made of star stuff" -- but how do stars distribute their essential "stuff" for life into space? NASA's telescope on an airplane, SOFIA, is finding some answers by watching pulsating stars as they expand and contract, almost
Washington D.C.[USA], Aug 4 (ANI): An international team of astronomers including Gisela Ortiz-Leon from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) in Bonn discovered a Saturn-like planet orbiting a small, cool star by detecting the "wobble" in the star's motion caused by the gravi
