Astronomers have found a protoplanetary disk surrounding a young star with a rather chilly secret.
For the first time, astronomers have found compelling evidence that the dust-free gaps surrounding young stars are caused by massive exoplanets.
In new observations, an extremely concentrated knot of ancient galaxies undergoing energetic star formation at the dawn of our universe has been spied embedded in a knot of dark matter.
Astronomers have detected something baffling at the furthest frontiers of our observable universe: lots of massive galaxies that shouldn't even exist.
Recent observations of the gaps in protoplanetary disks surrounding nearby young stars may not be 'proof' of the formation of exoplanets.
The prospect of measuring the mass of the most massive known objects in the universe would send most people into a cold sweat, but for astronomers it's all in a day's work.
After poring over the details of the most perfect Einstein Ring imaged to date, ALMA astronomers have discovered that this distant galaxy is a frenzy of star formation.
This is one of the finest examples of an Einstein ring spotted to date, but it wasn't observed by the Hubble Space Telescope, this stunning example of general relativity in action was captured by the world's most powerful ground based observatory.
