Astronomers have suggested that the mysterious ninth planet may be a small black hole

We remind our readers that a few years ago a group of scientists of astronomers put forward the theory of the existence of the still undiscovered planet of the solar system, "Planet 9" or "Planet X". This cold planet is located in the depths of space far beyond the orbit of Neptune, and its existence […]

Extraterrestrial "mega-construction" is not one in the space surrounding us. Astronomers have found many more stars twinkling in a similar way.

We remind our readers that in 2015, scientists working with data collected by the Kepler space telescope noticed unusual fluctuations in the brightness of the glow of the star KIC 8462852. This star is a fairly common F-type, it is 1.5 times larger and hot than our Sun, and it’s located it is at a […]

The asteroid has changed color in the eyes of astronomers. This is the first such case in history.

Astronomers from the University of Massachusetts can talk about great luck. They observed an unusual phenomenon – an asteroid changed color before their eyes. The asteroid belt, located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, has been the subject of research by astronomers for many years. The objects located in it still bring new discoveries. […]

Astronomers have discovered a neutron star, which became the champion in mass and size among the known

Endless space is full of various riddles and secrets. One of these puzzles concerns how neutron stars accumulate mass and, as a result of their own gravity, collapse with black holes. The discovery of a new neutron star, which has the largest mass among all known to people, can shed light on this riddle. Further […]

Astronomers captured the final moment in the life cycle of a giant red star

The duration of human life on the cosmic time scales is shorter than the flash of one pulse of the fastest, femtosecond laser. This, in turn, deprives us of the opportunity to observe the course of the full life cycles of galaxies, stars, and planets, but sometimes the good luck smiles at the scientific astronomers, […]

First exoplanet without atmosphere discovered

Astronomers first observed an exoplanet without an atmosphere. In recent years, several observations of rocky planets have been made, revolving around red dwarfs – small stars, with a radius equal to 60% of the radius of the Sun. Despite their size, these stars are very active – to the point that many scientists say: planets […]

Artificial Intelligence Helps Recognize Galaxy Mergers

Astronomers use artificial intelligence to search for ancient collisions of galaxies. Bright glows appear in the universe, which are a harbinger of a collision of galaxies. Unfortunately, terrestrial telescopes are not able to distinguish ultra-bright individual distant galaxies from two cosmic objects connecting to each other. Artificial intelligence will help. Since we know how galaxies […]

Astronomers have discovered a black hole, which has become the new champion in mass and size to date

Astronomers from the Max Planck Institute, Germany, along with their colleagues from other countries and scientific organizations, have found a black hole, which has become the new record holder in terms of size and weight today. This black hole is located in the center of the Holm 15A galaxy at a distance of 700 million […]

Astronomers conducted the largest simulation – millions of "virtual galaxies" in the bowels of one supercomputer

It is known that the universal scale goes far beyond the possibilities of perception of the human mind, there are billions of billions of galaxies alone in the Universe. And scientific astronomers, by observing the depths of space, are constantly expanding the circle of our knowledge about the structure of the Universe, about processes taking […]

Astronomers have witnessed the rarest phenomenon – the collision of a black hole and a neutron star

Astronomers engaged in the "hunt" for gravitational waves, with a very high percentage of probability witnessed one of the rarest and most exotic events. On August 14 this year, at 9:10 am GMT, two LIGO gravitational wave sensors in the USA and a Virgo sensor in Italy registered a package of gravitational waves, called S190814bv. […]
