Tune in tonight at 7 p.m. for a fascinating Perimeter Institute public lecture on the physics and mysteries behind neutron stars.
A network of small, ground-based telescopes hunting the night-time skies for transient supernovas fished out a whopper -- a one-of-a-kind cosmic explosion that at its peak blasted out more light than 50 times all the stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
An ancient supernova that was serendipitously captured in four Hubble space telescope images thanks to a naturally occurring cosmic magnifying lens has reappeared, as astronomers predicted.
Somewhere out there in the darkest depths of our universe, something is generating mysterious eruptions of energy that are being detected as fast radio bursts -- and astronomers are close to working out what they are.
Astrophysicists have created a computer model that simulates a dying stars' magnetic guts before generating a cosmic monster.
These beautiful, shimmering tendrils of plasma are all that remain of an ancient massive star that, approximately 8,000 years ago, died and exploded as a supernova.
A so-called cosmic tsunami is rousing a galaxy cluster affectionately nicknamed Sausage, suggesting that stagnant galaxies can be rejuvenated when galactic clusters collide.
Astronomers have announced the discovery of a truly monstrous structure consisting of a ring of galaxies around 5 billion light-years across -- and it defies cosmological theory.
