NASA's veteran Voyager 1 spacecraft has been hit by a 'tsunami' from the sun as the mission pushes deeper into interstellar space. Continue reading →
In an effort to visualize what a future starship may look like, NASA physicist Sonny White and space artist Mark Rademaker have teamed up to create the 'IXS Enterprise.'
A weird type of 'hybrid' star has been discovered nearly 40 years since it was first theorized -- but until now has been curiously difficult to find. Continue reading →
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has uncovered the darkest cloud of interstellar dust and gas ever seen; it is so dense that even background infrared radiation is blocked, casting an ominous interstellar shadow. Continue reading →
Astronomers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have spotted a star ripping through space, generating a violent bow shock ahead of its relentless rampage through the interstellar medium.
Measurements by NASA’s two Voyager spacecraft helped reveal the outer planets of the solar system and then the doorsteps to interstellar space. Now, their data has been used to create a piece of classical music. Continue reading →
If we could harness the energy generated by an evaporating black hole, we might be able to bridge the vast space between the stars.
Using data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), astronomers have detected two ancient "failed stars" that are likely 10 billion years old. Continue reading →
