Have astronomers found the first exomoon beyond our solar system? - Read

The Kepler Space Telescope finds planets by watching them pass in front of their stars, causing a dip in the stars’ light. The new potential moon was found in the same way – as a moon orbits its planet, it leads to an extra fall in the starlight coming from behind.

Astrosat, Chandra and Hubble jointly detect massive cosmic explosion

Three space-based observatories Astrosat, Chandra, Hubble Space Telescope and a ground-based observatory HARPS have simultaneously detected a massive coronal explosion on the nearest planet-hosting star 'Proxima Centauri', a top scientist revealed here on Wednesday.

NASA's Hubble spots a challenging cosmic target – the 'Hidden Galaxy'! (See pic)

IC 342, as the galaxy is also known, is bright and sits near the equator of the Milky Way’s galactic disk, where the sky is thick with glowing cosmic gas, bright stars, and dark, obscuring dust.

NASA's Hubble spots clumps of new stars in lensed galaxy

NASA's Hubble spots clumps of new stars in lensed galaxy

By applying a new computational analysis to a galaxy magnified by a gravitational lens, astronomers have obtained images 10 times sharper than what Hubble could achieve on its own.

Astronomers use Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity to measure mass of star

Astronomers use Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity to measure mass of star

Researchers measured the mass of a white dwarf star by analysing how much it bent the light of a more distant star, just as Einstein asserted could be done more than a century ago, as per Efe news report.

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.
