The best places to stargaze around the world

Light pollution blots out the night sky for billions of people around the world, but there are still places where the night remains untouched by humans. Minimum light pollution, dark cloudless nights, wide open air, and high altitudes are all factors that lead to the best conditions for skywatchers hoping to see amazing cosmic sights...CONTINUE READING

Hungry, hungry black hole would take only two days to eat the mass of our sun

Even black holes get hungry. Astronomers have just discovered a black hole that’s growing faster than any other black hole yet found in the universe.  If the sun were to fall into this incredibly dense cosmic object, it would only take two days for the black hole to devour it, the scientists behind the new...CONTINUE READING

A distant galaxy doesn’t seem to contain any dark matter, and that’s really weird

Billions of years ago, our Milky Way galaxy pulled itself together.  Our home condensed from gas that gathered in our small part of the universe, swirled together thanks to gravity provided by dark matter — the mysterious substance that makes up 85 percent of matter in the universe and doesn’t interact with regular matter.  That...CONTINUE READING

Why NASA is struggling to launch its most ambitious space science project yet

We’re all going to have to keep waiting before we see NASA’s most complicated space science mission — the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) — come to fruition. The space agency announced Tuesday that the launch of the JWST — the huge, complex tool intended to succeed the Hubble Space Telescope — has been delayed...CONTINUE READING

Scientists uncover a signal sent out by the first stars in the universe

For millions of years after the Big Bang, the universe was a cold place filled with hydrogen and helium created at the dawn of the universe.  And then, suddenly, there was light. For the first time, a team of astronomers think they’ve detected a signal from some of the first stars that formed less than...CONTINUE READING

That planet circling Proxima Centauri may not be that great of a place to live

The closest planet to Earth outside of our solar system might not be a place you’d want to visit.  Researchers have found that the planet — called Proxima b — was likely bathed in radiation after its host star (comparable to our sun), Proxima Centauri, emitted a huge flare in March.  “March 24, 2017 was...CONTINUE READING

That interstellar asteroid probably isn’t aliens, but the hunt continues

Well, it should come as no surprise, but the interstellar asteroid astronomers discovered in October doesn’t appear to be a piece of alien technology.  According to initial observations made by a radio telescope on Wednesday, the asteroid, named ‘Oumuamua, doesn’t appear to have any obvious “artificial signals” coming from it.  But the hunt isn’t over...CONTINUE READING
