Collapsing star mysteriously reborn as black hole, reveal NASA's Hubble and Spitzer images

As the astronomers looked for remnants of the vanquished star, they found that it disappeared out of sight with a whimper instead of a bang.

What's new on TRAPPIST-1 system? Life forms from one planet can spread to others in just 10 years

What's new on TRAPPIST-1 system? Life forms from one planet can spread to others in just 10 years

Triggering a new research into this path-breaking finding of TRAPPIST-1 planets, researchers led by Sebastiaan Krijt, a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago, analysed whether life forms from one planet can seed life in other planets, owing to their closeness.
