In a first, a team of scientists has tracked down the location of a fast radio burst (FRB), confirming that these short but spectacular flashes of radio waves originate in the distant universe. The breakthrough was made using
Have a message to convey to the aliens out there? Write one fast as researchers are set to beam selective messages from around the world into space at the speed of light to create a celestial time capsule.
NASA space scientists, trying hard to understand the Sun's electromagnetic field that is crucial for future deep space travel, have released a first-ever video model of the Sun showing how its magnetic field behaves.
An international team of researchers has found for the first time that the connection between a galaxy cluster and surrounding dark matter is not characterised solely by the mass of clusters but also by their formation histor
Can not finding signs of life at a place on Earth that closely resembles the area on Red Planet a bad news for those trying to find life on the Martian surface? Yes, say researchers, suggesting that the failure to find active
NASA has started a new programme called the Planetary Defence Coordination Office (PDCO) which will coordinate the space agency's efforts to detect and track near-Earth objects (NEOs), a media report said.
A team of US scientists has challenged the popular scientific model that the physical universe - space, time, matter and energy - ballooned out from a very hot and dense point and inflated with a Big Bang into how we see the
Evolution is a touchy subject. Unveil a new discovery pointing towards what triggered life on Earth and a whole contingent of evolutionists, the proponents of Intelligent design (ID) and SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Int
A team of astronomers harnessing the combined power of NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes have found the faintest object ever (a galaxy) seen in the early universe. It existed about 400 million years after the Big Ban
For the first time ever, a team of astronomers has directly observed a planet in the process of being born. The accumulation of dust and gas particles into a new planet, the process by which the planet continues to form and g
