Astronomers presented the results of studies of the multiplanetary system L 98-59, which is located 35 light-years from the Sun. They managed to find two new exoplanets in it, and also determine that the system includes a planet with large reserves of water and a planet located in the habitable zone.
Astronomers unexpectedly discovered two unusual objects in the main asteroid belt, located between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars. What surprised scientists was the red color of these asteroids. They shouldn’t be there, that’s why scientists became interested in them.
Astronomers using the SRT ground-based radio telescope have built the most detailed radio map of the Andromeda Galaxy. It made it possible to better study the structure of the galaxy and its properties, as well as to compile a catalog of background sources.
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?
Cosmic Explosions 10 Times More Powerful Than a Supernova To Solve 13-Billion-Year-Old Space Mystery
Hypernova outbursts could be the main suppliers of r-process elements in the earliest stages of galaxy formation. Astronomers came to this conclusion after studying one of the stars in the halo of the Milky Way.
Astronomers have discovered a white dwarf with unprecedented characteristics. It is simultaneously the smallest and most massive white dwarf ever observed by astronomers.
