This striking view of the central parts of the Milky Way has been obtained using the VISTA survey telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile. It’s part of a huge picture (108,200 x 81,500 pixels) which contains nearly nearly nine billion pixels. You can access the zoomable version by clicking the image below. To create this […]

Scroll down for video China put world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope into formal operation on Saturday. The Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) will provide astronomers around the globe with a powerful tool to uncover the mysteries surrounding the genesis and evolutions of the universe. GUIYANG, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) — China completed commissioning […]

Up until now, NASA has never paid too much attention to Uranus – but now the space agency wants to take a good, long look. And one of the things it might be investigating is all that gas. A NASA group outlined four possible missions to the ice giants Uranus and Neptune. These missions include […]

People worldwide are already reporting unidentified lights in the sky as Starlink gets off the ground. It could be just the beginning. This image of a distant galaxy group from Arizona’s Lowell Observatory is marred by diagonal lines from the trails of Starlink satellites shortly after their launch in May.Victoria Girgis/Lowell Observatory Last year saw […]

Fluff surrounds the solid interiors of each of the three planets in the Kepler 51 star system. Each of these planets was discovered to have masses “only a few times larger than Earth’s” with radii larger than Neptune. Because of these extreme variables, all three studied Kepler 51 planets are now part of a relatively […]

The oft-delayed space observatory will be worth the wait. The fully assembled James Webb Space Telescope with its sunshield and “unitized pallet structures” (which fold up around the telescope for launch) are seen partially deployed to an open configuration to enable telescope installation.

The nighttime events are among initial results from the InSight lander, which also found hints that the red planet may host a global reservoir of liquid water deep below the surface. At midnight on Mars, the red planet’s magnetic field sometimes starts to pulsate in ways that have never before been observed. The cause is […]

A UFO hunter who scours images of space looking for evidence of aliens says he has found a “pyramid-like structure” on the surface of the moon. So-called UFO anomaly hunter Mark Sawalha says he found the pyramid on a NASA image taken close to the Eudoxus Crater. He revealed his findings in a YouTube video entitled “Pyramid […]

First known interstellar comet also turns out to be one of the fastest known Nasa has released never-before-seen images of 2I/Borisov, only the second known object to have visited our solar system from elsewhere. The image shows the comet in front of a distant spiral galaxy, which can be made out to the side. But the focus […]

(Image credit: Science Photo Library/Getty) In the beginning, there was nothing. Then, around 13.7 billion years ago, the universe formed. We still don’t know the exact conditions under which this happened, and whether there was a time before time. But using telescope observations and models of particle physics, researchers have been able to piece together a […]
