What Happens When Galaxies Collide With Each Other

Interactions between galaxies are quite normal, especially between giant and satellite galaxies. Two galaxies are drawn together by forces they can’t see but they can feel. It’s a mutual gravitational attraction. Because of this, galaxies come too close to one another, to the point where the gravity of the...

What Are Satellite Galaxies?

Our sun is one of a massive collection of stars in the Milky Way galaxy, while every star orbits the center of the galaxy. But these hundreds of billions of stars are not the only big things orbiting the center of the galaxy. A whole galaxy can orbit the center of another bigger galaxy. Astronomers call these kinds of...

What Exactly Are Black Holes And How Strong Are They

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can’t get out. That’s because the matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special...

Giant Clouds of Space Alcohol Floating in the Deepness

Ten thousand light years from earth, a massive cloud of space alcohol was found. Astronomers have found vast quantities of pure alcohol in an interstellar cloud some 10,000 light years from Earth. This breakthrough occurred in 1995 when researchers at Ohio State University collected data for astronomers. Thus, making this...

Learn What Lies Beyond Our Solar System

Our sun is not the only one in the Galaxy. There are at least 100 billion stars beyond our solar system, a spiral galaxy about 100,000 light-years across. Our star along with its planets float around the milky way galaxy. Stars beyond our Solar System are arranged in a pinwheel pattern with four major arms, and we live about...

New Telescope Just Detected Mysterious Signal From Space

After just four days of observation, the telescope has detected mysterious signal from deep space which has surprised astronomers. Less than a week into its research, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope detected radio bursts. The bursts were emanating from the constellation Leo. The strange and rare...

What is the Origin of the Universe Based on Science?

The most trusted theory of our universe’s origin centers on a cosmic cataclysm-the big bang. The theory describes how the Universe began and evolved since that time. So, the Big Bang started about 13.7 billion years ago. Since then, the Universe is in a rapid expansion and still evolving. This theory was born from the...

What is the Cosmic Microwave Background?

The Cosmic Microwave Background, or CMB, is a radiation that fills the universe. We can detect it in every direction. So, this radiation started around 400,000 years after the Universe began. That may sound like a long time on human timescales, but it really is the blink of an eye when compared to the age of the Universe. The...

Hubble Space Telescope Spotted The Most Distant Object In The Universe

Scientists, through the Hubble Space Telescope, have found the most distant object that humans have ever seen. A galaxy, 13.4 billion light-years away, has been spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope. It could lead scientists to question their understanding of the way that the universe evolved. A galaxy of such a size...

Merging Galaxies Have Enshrouded Black Holes

Stars, gas, and dust can orbit black holes for long periods of time until a major disruption pushes the material in.  Only high-energy X-rays escape telling astronomers about the accreting black holes within. Galaxies combine and their central black holes approach each other. Thus, they push the gas and dust, surrounding it,...
