Researchers have identified the first "sibling" of the Sun - a star that was almost certainly born from the same cloud of gas and dust as our star.
Researchers have said that the gas cloud that`s edging closer to the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy could reveal much about these entities.
A team of researchers, using a telescope installed at the driest place on Earth - Ridge A in Antarctica - have identified a giant gas cloud that appears to be in an early stage of formation.
Astronomers have discovered that a mysterious gas cloud about three times the mass of Earth is spiraling towards the supermassive black hole at the Milky Way`s core.
Recent observations of the galactic center have revealed that parts of the in-falling gas cloud, which was detected in 2011, have already swung past the black hole at the heart of our Milky Way.
The Chandra X-ray Observatory has helped scientists to make a detailed study of an enormous cloud of hot gas enveloping two large, colliding galaxies.
Scientists have developed a new technique of measuring the mass of supermassive black holes which they say could revolutionise our understanding of how they form and help to shape galaxies.
A worldwide team of astronomers has finally solved the case of the missing quasar gas clouds.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has detected a concentration of high-altitude haze and a vortex materializing at the south pole of planet’s largest moon Titan.
Astronomers have spied a giant gas cloud with several times the mass of Earth accelerating towards the supermassive black hole at the centre of our own Milky Way galaxy.
