The galaxy we inhabit, the Milky Way, may be getting even bigger, according to new research.
The “rogue” worlds are said to be located 3.8 billion light-years away.
How an international team of researchers is constraining the speed of invisible and undetectable dark matter
Scientists on the hunt for colliding black holes should turn their eyes to the quiet, outer regions of galaxies like the Milky Way, a new study suggests.
A new study of a nearby cluster of newly formed stars reveals that brown dwarfs may rival stars in the Milky Way in number, with one brown dwarf for every two bona fide stars.
Einstein’s greatest theory has aced another test. Two stars are speeding around the big black hole at the Milky Way’s core in just the way his general theory of relativity predicted.
An international team of astronomers, led by Dutch scientists, has discovered a region in our Milky Way that contains many nitrogen compounds in the southeast of a butterfly-shaped star formation disk and very little in the north-west.
