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...

This is what Happens when Black Holes Collide

So, a black hole is a collapsed core of a very big star. Their gravity is so strong, as we know, even light can’t escape. However, black holes can collide. In the early 20th century, Einstein predicted that gravity is a distortion of spacetime. He also predicted that massive objects moving through spacetime should...

Space Dust Could Transport Life from Planet to Planet

A new study suggests quick-moving streams of space dust can transport microscopic creatures like tardigrades from planet to planet. Professor Arjun Berera from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Physics and Astronomy is the author of the new study. He suggests that some smaller organisms might be able to travel across...

ALMA Discovers the most Powerful Galactic Collision

ALMA observes a super bright galactic collision. Two ancient galaxies, 50 times bigger than our own, collide, thus, forming the largest galaxy merger ever. Astronomers call these two galaxies ADFS-27. Scientists refer to them as ‘superluminous starburst galaxies,’ because they are both incredibly bright and...

Astronomers observe a new type of cosmic explosion

You can find trillions of cosmic explosions happening around the universe. There are different types of them and we are still finding new ones. An international team of astronomers has found a new type of cosmic explosion in a galaxy 2.4 billion light-years away. Researchers call this explosion PS1-10adi. Telescopes in Hawaii...
