Weird Planet’s Orbit is Misaligned – GJ 436b

So, we are talking about the weird GJ 436b. The evaporating planet is highly elliptical and its weird behavior indicates a massive hidden presence. GJ 436b lies 33 light years from Earth and it orbits extremely close to its star. Planets in our solar system rotate tidily around in their orbits in roughly the same plane as...

Habitable Planets could Exist Around Deadly Pulsars

Usually, astronomers look for systems that could host life. But new research suggests it might be possible that habitable planets exist around pulsars. However, living in the pulsar worlds for humans would be like living in the bottom of the sea. So, not very friendly to us. Such planets must have an enormous atmosphere that...

Extremely Massive Galaxies at the Universe’s Infancy

At the universe’s infancy, two dwarf-galaxies formed and were speeding towards each other. Thus, confronting one another and assembling into a large galaxy. Based on current theories, in the universe’s infancy galaxies were tiny. So, they needed to merge with each other to form larger ones that we see today....

Twin Super-Earths Found Orbiting in the Habitable Zone

Firstly astronomers found an exoplanet with a potential to harbor life. Then, they found its neighbor. Both of them lying in the habitable zone. A team of researchers found a super-Earth planet called K2-18b using data collected by the European Southern Observatory (ESO). They say the new planet could be a scaled-up version...

The Farthest Monster Black Hole Discovered

Looking at this monster black hole means you are looking at the dawn of creation. Its light takes 13 billion years to reach Earth. Researchers have discovered the oldest supermassive black hole ever found. It formed just 690 million years after the Big Bang, meaning the universe was just 5% of its current age. This was a...

Two Supermassive Black Holes ‘Photobomb’ Andromeda Galaxy

Astronomers have spotted a tightly coupled pair of supermassive black holes. They call this pair of giant black holes J0045+41. Astronomers observed it using X-ray data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and optical data from ground-based telescopes. Previously, researchers thought this object to be a binary star system,...

NASA Discovers a Planet so Weird they can’t Explain

A team led by NASA discovered evidence of a planet so weird they can’t actually explain. Scientists are now baffled by this appalling planet. They call it WASP-18b and it lies some 325 light-years away. This monster planet is 10 times more massive than Jupiter. The eerie planet has a suffocate atmosphere filled with...

Deepest Place in the Universe that has Ever be Seen

Hubble Space Telescope captured an image called the Ultra-Deep Field. It represents the deepest place seen through an optical telescope. In 2003, for almost 12 days, the Hubble Space Telescope looked at a tiny square in the constellation of Fornax. So, it became the sharpest, most sensitively recorded region of the sky. Thus,...

Two Enormous ‘Starburst’ Galaxies on a Collision Course

Two incredibly massive ‘starburst’ galaxies are on their course of an extreme merger. Astronomers call the galactic pair ADFS-27. This extremely rare event occurs almost 13 billion light-years away, in the constellation Dorado. So, the galactic pair formed when the universe was just one billion years old....

This is the Largest Structure in the Universe

The universe is tremendously big. So, somewhere in the deepness, you can find unimaginably big structures. Thus, making us look very insignificant. In November 2013 astronomers have found an enormously large structure. It would take you 10 billion light-years to cross it. Astronomers call this structure ‘Hercules-Corona...
