Would An Alien Civilization Survive Climate Change?

Researchers want to know if a sustainable alien civilization exists somewhere, maybe outside our galaxy or “our universe”. Climate change, deforestation, and biodiversity loss is something that is happening right in front of our eyes. Many out there believe that creating a sustainable version of civilization is one...

Astronomers Take a Close Look at a Distant Pulsar

Astronomers have made one of the highest-resolution observations in the history of astronomy. They observed a distant pulsar 6,500 light-years from Earth. So, a team of astronomers has observed two intense regions of radiation, 20 km apart, around a star 6,500 light-years away. We are talking about a pair of stars orbiting...

Star Turns into a Black Hole Before Hubble’s Eyes

Hubble just witnessed the birth of a black hole for the first time. But astronomers didn’t expect this kind of unusual birth. Usually, when a massive star expands its fuel, its core collapses into a dense object. Thus, sending the rest of its gas outward in an event is called a supernova. However, this was not the case...

Baby Stars Found Just 250 Million Years after Big Bang

An international team of astronomers found evidence of baby stars formed only 250 million years after big bang. They used ALMA telescope. So, using instruments at the ALMA observatory in Chile, astronomers were able to observe a distant galaxy called MACS1149-JD1. This galaxy lies 13.28 billion light-years away and its stars...

Hubble Discovers a Light-Bending Einstein Ring

Hubble Space Telescope snapped a picture packed with galaxies. But among them, you can find a spectacular feature: the Einstein Ring. Astronomers call this galaxy cluster SDSS J0146-0929. The gravity here bounds hundreds of individual galaxies. But not just that. It actually bends light in a way that creates a ring-like...

Astronomers Find a Galaxy Free of Dark Matter

This is the first time astronomers find an entire galaxy that’s devoid of dark matter. A poorly-understood building block of our universe. Astronomers on Wednesday (March 28) announced the discovery of the first and only known galaxy without dark matter. Astronomers think that dark matter makes up about 27 percent of our...
