Astronomers, who took precise measurements of the closest pair of failed stars to the Sun, have found that the system harbours a third, planetary-mass object.
Scientists have produced a detailed three-dimensional map of the stars that form the inner regions of our Milky Way galaxy.
Astronomers have created the best three-dimensional map yet of the central parts of the Milky Way - and found that the inner regions take on a peanut-like, or X-shaped, appearance.
Three "super Earth" planets have been found orbiting a nearby star at a distance where life in theory could exist.
Astronomers have discovered a new class of variable stars by measuring minute variations in stellar brightness.

The European Southern Observatory, or ESO, released an image Thursday that shows the intense activity that occurs inside an interstellar cloud when stars form.
New infrared images from European Southern Observatory`s VISTA telescope show the globular cluster 47 Tucanae in striking detail.
