The largest and most sensitive visible-light imaging survey of dusty debris disks around other stars point towards an unseen planetary system that could be quite chaotic, astronomers who did the survey using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope reported.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has recently spotted a diminutive object that is estimated to be over 13 billion light-years away; this is supposed to be one of the farthest, faintest, and smallest galaxies ever seen.
Using the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, a team of scientists including an Indian-origin researcher has made the most detailed map ever of the temperature of an exoplanet's atmosphere and traced the amount of water it contains.
In a disturbing trend, an internal Hubble Space Telescope (HST) study has found that in each of the past 11 observation proposal cycles, applications led by male principal investigators had a higher success rate than those led by women.
Astronomers have obtained the best view of merging galaxies in the distant Universe, which took place when the Universe was only half its current age, with the help NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and other telescopes on the ground and in space.
A study of unprecedented detail has revealed astonishingly little water on three distant planets, hinting at potential obstacles in the search for Earth-like worlds rich in H2O, astronomers said today.
Astronomers using NASA`s Hubble Space Telescope have applied a new image processing technique to obtain near-infrared scattered light photos of five disks observed around young stars in the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes database.
Applying a novel technique that can yield new insight into dark energy in space, astronomers can now precisely measure the distance of stars up to 10,000 light-years away - 10 times farther than previously possible.
After the successful launch of Mars Orbiter and two navigation satellites, India is developing an astronomical satellite- Astrosat. This satellite will be used to study stars and other celestial bodies and is expected to launch in 2015.
