The European Southern Observatory has released an image of the Milky Way that is four times larger than what has been seen so far.
In a latest study published in Astronomical Journal on Tuesday, researchers from various countries feature their reports and findings that the galaxies can help in understanding the enigmatic marvel called the Great Attractor, says The Washington Post.
Scientists find that an exoplanet, earlier thought to be free floating, is orbiting a star from the greatest distance known thus far.
The brightest known ultra metal-poor star to date would unlock some secrets of the universe, according to scientists.
A new type of black hole that could be the second largest has been found by scientists in the Milky Way.
Remnants of the stellar explosion was first spotted last year.
Though just one planet has been found in a globular star cluster, scientists believe that there may be more.
While suggesting that the possibility of habitable planets in globular clusters, two scientists argue life could be exciting in such clusters.
Canis Majoris, the hypergiant star discovered by astronomers is discarding 30 earthloads of dust every year in a weight loss process before it becomes supernova
A new study claims that the ratio of dark matter to visible matter in the galaxy Triangulum II is the highest of any galaxy known. The galaxy thus becomes an ideal spot to look for dark matter.
Researchers found the stars at the center of the universe while the solar system's most distant object is said to three times father than the Pluto-Sun distance.
A new discovery in the Milky Way shows many parts that were never spotted before.
NASA scientists have discovered the first planet as big as Earth orbiting a star in the "habitable zone" of the Milky Way. Habitable zone is considered the range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet.
Physicists probably have the best lead till date about the nature of dark matter - the strange and invisible stuff that dominates the material universe.
NASA has released a new panoramic view of our galaxy comprising nearly 2.5 million images. These images were captured by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
