A nearby star is not acting its age, thanks to the influence of a massive exoplanet.
Mass and gravity are intimately related, so it stands to reason that the link between the Higgs boson and gravity is just as fundamental -- now astronomers are looking to the stars to actually test the finer details of this relationship. Continue reading →
Gravitational waves are hard to observe, but they could have a dramatic effect on stars that we could possibly detect. Continue reading →
The supernova mechanism behind cosmic dust formation has been a mystery, but now astronomers have the answer. Continue reading →
Behind the nebulous beauty of this newly-released portrait of a stellar nursery is a violent battle that will end only one way: The death of Gum 15. Continue reading →
Astronomers aren't being poetic when they say this star is a diamond.
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.'
Red dwarf stars -- the most common stars in the galaxy -- bathe planets in their habitable zones with potentially deadly stellar winds, a finding that could have significant impacts on the prevalence of life beyond Earth, new research shows.
