Scientists are a step closer to understanding the inner-workings of the universe following the laying of the first stone, and construction starting on the world's largest optical and infrared telescope. With a main mirror 39 meters in diameter, the Extremely...        

"What Lies Beneath is Breathtaking!" --NASA Peers Below Jupiter's Clouds and Sees a Whole New Complex, Gigantic and Turbulent World

The early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas...        

Astronomers Observe Birth of a Massive 'LIGO-Sized' Black Hole in Realtime --"First Ever Witnessed" (VIDEO)

Astronomers have watched as a massive, dying star was likely reborn as a black hole. It took the combined power of the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT), and NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to go looking for remnants of the...        

NASA Reveals 'Stunning' Jupiter Juno-Mission Science Discoveries --"Swirling Polar Storms the Size of Mars"

"What we've learned so far is earth-shattering. Or should I say, Jupiter-shattering," said Bolton, Juno's principal investigator. "Discoveries about its core, composition, magnetosphere, and poles are as stunning as the photographs the mission is generating." NASA's Juno mission, led by...        

FRB's --"Strange Signals from Alien Worlds" (WATCH Today's 'Galaxy' Stream)

Fast Radio Bursts are millisecond-duration pulses of unknown origin that were discovered by pulsar astronomers in 2007. A decade on from the discovery, with only 20 further bursts currently known, fast radio bursts remain enigmatic sources which parallel the early...        

Hyper-Growth Galaxies from Early Universe --"Formed in Unusual Regions of the Cosmos"

An international team of astronomers has discovered a new kind of galaxy which, although extremely old--formed less than a billion years after the Big Bang--creates stars more than a hundred times faster than our own Milky Way. "Very likely it...        

NASA Tracks Strange Supermassive Black Hole Moving Away From Elliptical Galaxy's Center (VIDEO)

Supermassive black holes are generally stationary objects, sitting at the centers of most galaxies. However, using data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes, astronomers recently hunted down what could be a supermassive black hole that may be on...        

"The Day the Dinosaurs Died" -- Chicxulub Asteroid Impact Equivalent to 10 Billion Hiroshima Bombs Hit Worst Possible Place on Earth (WATCH Today's 'Galaxy'Stream)

Scientists drilled into the Chicxulub crater buried underneath the Yucatán Peninsula recovered rocks from under the Gulf of Mexico that were hit by an asteroid 66 million years ago creating the niche that made the rise of homo sapiens possible....        

Mystery in Galaxy Cygnus A --"Unknown Object of Extraordinary Brightness Discovered"

"To our surprise, we found a prominent new feature near the galaxy's nucleus that did not appear in any previous published images. This new feature is bright enough that we definitely would have seen it in the earlier images if...        

WATCH Tuesday's 'Facebook Live' Virtual Tour of NASA's Centers --"At the Cutting Edge of Our Deep Space Destiny"

Starting at 1:30 p.m. EDT, NASA's social media team will take visitors behind the scenes for a virtual tour of NASA and a look at the cutting-edge work here and on humanity's destiny in deep space. These Facebook Live events...     ...

(LISTEN THURSDAY) NASA to Livestream First Science Results from Juno Mission to Jupiter

Scientists from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter will discuss their first in-depth science results in a media teleconference at 2 p.m. EDT Thursday, May 25, when multiple papers with early findings will be published online by the journal Science and...        

Supernova Explosions Over Millions of Years --"Source of Antimatter in the Milky Way"

Scientists have known since the early 1970s that the inner parts of the Milky Way galaxy are a strong source of gamma-rays, indicating the existence of antimatter, but there had been no settled view on where the antimatter came from....        

"Synestia" --A New Planet-Sized Object in the Cosmos Identified

There's something new to look for in the heavens, and it's called a "synestia," according to planetary scientists Simon Lock at Harvard University and Sarah Stewart at the University of California, Davis. A synestia, they propose, would be a huge,...        

LIGO Can Probe the Cosmos for Exotic Gravitational Waves "Once Thought To Be Invisible"

Researchers at the the Monash Centre for Astrophysics have identified a new concept - 'orphan memory' - which changes the current thinking around gravitational waves. Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that cataclysmic cosmic explosions stretch the fabric of spacetime....        

'Naked Singularities' Outside a Black Hole --"Could Cause the Laws of Physics to Break Down"

Researchers, from the University of Cambridge, have used computer simulations to predict the existence of a so-called naked singularity, normally only found at the center of black holes and hidden from view – could exist in highly curved three-dimensional space,...        

XENON1T: World's Largest Dark Matter Detector --"Listens for Its Very Weak Voice"

The best result on dark matter so far—and we just got started." This is how scientists behind XENON1T, now the most sensitive dark matter experiment world-wide, commented on their first result from a short 30-day run presented today to the...        

Origins of Life --Building Blocks of RNA Cornerstone of all life on Earth "Formed as a Single Process Before Life Began"

RNA is the corner stone of all life on Earth and probably carried the first information at the outset of life, but making RNA requires both purine and pyrimidine nucleotides to be simultaneously available. A solution to this problem has...
