NASA’s Webb, Alignment is Done, Optics Working Perfectly

Following the completion of critical mirror alignment steps, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope team expects that Webb’s optical performance will be able to meet or exceed the science goals the observatory was built to achieve. The 18th of the...

Did the Universe’s Very First Stars Form Quicker Than We First Thought?

The new insight gained from an ancient gas cloud has revealed just how fast the Universe’s first stars formed. The 13-billion-year-old cloud has enabled astronomers from the Carnegie Institution for Science to record the earliest measurement to date of...

Are Scientists Really Any Closer to Explaining the Origin of Black Hole Mergers?

While scientists may have detected and reported the emitting of gravitational waves from a total of 10 black hole mergers to date, they’re still trying to explain the origin of these events. The largest merger recorded to date...

Scientists Gain Deeper Insight Into the True Structure in the Outer Corona

Using advanced algorithms and data-cleansing techniques, a team of scientists, led by solar physicist Craig DeForest, discovered structures in the outer corona that had never been seen before. The way in which they discovered these structures was by analyzing...

Scientists Uncover Giant Upwellings on the Surface of Mars

For many years scientists have been under the impression that Mars has a crust similar to that of the Earth’s. However, one Cornell scientist, Esteban Gazel, proposes a different theory. He suggests that the surface of Mars consists of...

The Parker Solar Probe Launch Date is Fast Approaching 

All set for August 11 (after another delay) is the launch of the much awaited, and much talked about, Parker Solar Probe. The probe will allow scientists to get a closer look at the Sun than ever before and...

How a Collision with the Sausage Galaxy Made the Milky Way What it is Today

Around 8 to 10 billion years ago, astronomers predict that our very own Milky Way galaxy had a head-on collision with a much smaller object, nicknamed the ‘Sausage’ galaxy. And, it’s this cosmic collision that scientists believe is responsible...

Scientists Discover Nearly 80 Exoplanet Candidates in NASA’s K2 Mission

K2 is the given to the follow-up mission to NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope. Upon analyzing data retrieved from the mission, scientists discovered nearly 80 new exoplanet candidates. One that stood out, in particular, is a potential planet that orbits...

Are New Mars Rocks Shielding Secrets about Alien Life 4 Billion Years Ago?

Rocks enriched with iron have been found formed in lake beds near an ancient lake site on the Red Planet. Research suggests these rocks may indicate signs of life having once existed there. The study is another leap forward in...

The World’s Most Sensitive Experiment for Dark Matter is Now Underway

Dark matter has always been a bit of a mystery. But, thanks to the generosity of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the world’s most sensitive experiment for this mysterious phenomenon is about to begin. Experts say the sensitivity...
