There are few things that get us more excited than the mysteries of dark matter and the warping of spacetime, but when you have both wrapped into a stunning image of an Einstein ring, you know you're onto something special.
Where DO baby planets come from? Well, this observation of a young star sporting a ringed protoplanetary disk holds the answer.
The disk that feeds a baby star has been precisely measured for the first time, revealing details that have, until now, remained a mystery.
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.
