Scientists are taking initial steps in a long-term effort to learn as much as they can about gravitational waves -- mysterious undulations in the fabric of space-time that have so far evaded clear detection.
After undergoing a 5-year upgrade, the world's most powerful gravitational wave detector is back online and hunting for the tiniest of tiny fluctuations in spacetime.
A new spacecraft will test ideas to find gravitational waves in the universe.
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.
Dust gets everywhere, particularly around young stars. But when it comes to the presence of dust in their interplanetary environments, many mature sun-like stars are very house-proud. Continue reading →
For the first time, three supermassive black holes have been discovered in a tight orbital dance inside the center of a galaxy 4 billion light-years away. Continue reading →
HR 5171A is one of the ten largest stars known to exist in our galaxy, and it's co-joined with a stellar binary partner. Continue reading →
By combining two cutting-edge astronomical techniques, researchers have been able to, for the first time, resolve the visible light of the two stars in the famous Capella binary system -- could the same be done for exoplanets?
