LIGO Gravity Detector Detects Second Case of Collision of Two Neutron Stars

Scientists working at the LIGO Gravity Observatory have announced yet another discovery of gravitational waves caused by the collision of a pair of neutron stars. This event is the second in a row when scientists were able to understand the distortion parameters of the space-time continuum and determine with sufficient probability the form of the […]

Scientists have discovered a hidden black hole thanks to a new research method

In recent years, space has more and more attracted the attention of scientists. And you must remember that, unfortunately, humanity has not yet been able to study the most distant corners of space. Black holes are objects that are very numerous in space. Scientists were able to observe them using x-ray radiation. Meanwhile, scientists used […]

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 […]

Giant mass neutron star. According to scientists, it should not exist

Space scientists have reported the discovery of the most massive neutron star in history. J0740 + 6620 is a rapidly rotating pulsar with a mass of 2.17 times the sun. Moreover, its diameter is only 20-30 km. A teaspoon of neutron matter has a mass of as much as six billion tons. This comparison probably […]

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 […]
