The Spektr-RG Space Observatory has helped astronomers see the early stages of the tidal disruption of a star by a…

In Mexico, archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) will be forced to take a non-trivial step…
Astronomers have recorded the shortest gamma-ray burst ever produced by the collapse of a massive star. The discovery may question the generally accepted classification of gamma-ray bursts based on their duration.
The Hubble Space Telescope has confirmed the presence of water vapor in the rarefied atmosphere of Jupiter’s moon Ganymede. It is believed to originate from water ice, which sublimates under the influence of solar radiation and particle fluxes.
Harvard’s Chair of Astronomy is Leading a Team to Search For UFOs and Alien Tech—10 Reasons Why This is Huge
Avi Loeb is the most dedicated supporter of the theory that the interstellar object Oumuamua was alien technology. The professor is now launching a new initiative called the Galileo Project that will search for similar objects in space.
Can you tell where our planet is in the universe? Of course, planet Earth is in the Solar System, which in turn is in the Orion Arm, the small galactic arm of the Milky Way. Well, our own galaxy then? Did you know that it is part of the Laniakeа Supercluster along with tens of thousands of other galaxies?
Juno’s onboard science instrument Juno Waves “listened” to radio emissions coming from the side of Jupiter’s magnetic field and gave scientists the opportunity to determine the boundaries of the regions with radiation.
Planetary scientists working with the seismograph SEIS of the Martian automatic station InSight have published new results of the analysis…
For the first time, astronomers have reliably registered the presence of a dusty Moon-forming disc around a protoplanet in an exoplanetary system. This was done thanks to the ALMA radio telescope, which observed the system of the young star PDS 70.
Scientists analyzed old ice samples from the Tibetan plateau and found in them the genomic sequences of more than 30 ancient viruses, most of which were not previously known to science. The viruses from the Guliya ice cap have been given an approximate point of origin – around 15,000 years ago.
Paleogeneticists analyzed sediment samples from the Georgian cave of Satsurbia and found ancient DNA fragments of a wolf, a bison, as well as a person who lived about 25 thousand years ago. The woman whose DNA was studied belonged to a completely unknown human population.
An international group of scientists who are directly studying the relic radiation, in the course of their next study, suggested that the universe can exist in two forms, previously little known to science.
In addition to the four large Galilean moons, Jupiter has many smaller moons, up to a kilometer in size. Today, 79 of them are known, but there is no doubt that the giant planet has other small satellites that we have not yet noticed. One such was recently discovered by amateur astronomer Kai Ly, bringing the total to exactly eighty.
The Russian-European probe “ExoMars-TGO” did not detect even minimal traces of methane and two other hydrocarbons emitted by representatives of terrestrial life in the atmosphere of Mars.
In the process of genetic analysis of the microbial community of the swamp, American scientists discovered a new type of huge genetic element, probably capable of assimilating the genes of archaea. For this reason, they were named after the Borg civilization from the science fiction series Star Trek – Borg DNA.
An interdisciplinary team of scientists analyzed data from the Curiosity rover and identified the location of an unknown source of methane emissions, particles of which were previously recorded in the atmosphere of the Red Planet and intrigued the researchers.
The Event Horizon Telescope has obtained the most detailed image of relativistic jets erupting from the core of the Centaurus A radio galaxy. It turned out that the structure of the jets closely resembles the jet in the active galaxy M87 on a scale of up to five hundred gravitational radii of a black hole.
American geneticists analyzed 279 genomes of modern and 3 archaic people and found that the human genome is only 1.5-7 percent unique in relation to other hominins.
NASA specialists have successfully transferred the Hubble Telescope to backup units responsible for the operation of scientific instruments. The source of the telescope’s failure was the electric power regulator in the power supply.
An international team of researchers led by physicists from the University of Cambridge found the first evidence of the presence of an anomalous phase of matter on our planet, the existence of which was predicted back in the 1960s.
Scientists in New Zealand and the United States have managed to restore a torn 2300-year-old scroll of the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead. The contents of the linen fabric included spells and hymns accompanying a person named Petosiris to the afterlife.
Earlier this year, astronomers announced the discovery of a massive object from the Oort Cloud that appeared to be the largest to date. Fast-forward a few weeks and we already know that the object is a gargantuan-sized comet – C/2014 UN271. the largest comet ever discovered.
