Astronomers using data from NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have identified 14 candidate antistars — stars made of antimatter — in our Milky Way Galaxy.
Physicists have spent centuries grappling with an inconvenient truth about nature: Faced with three stars on a collision course, astronomers could measure their locations and velocities in nanometers and milliseconds and it wouldn’t be enough to predict the stars’ fates.
The discovery hints at unusual scenarios for how stars can evolve before they explode
From venomous snakes to giant lizards and hairy tarantulas, Australia is home to countless terrifying and unusual wild critters. But weirdest of them all might be this lesser-known insect: an enormous moth reportedly “the size of a rat.”
A mysterious wake of stars, stirred up by a small galaxy that is set to collide with the Milky Way, could be about to unlock the mysteries of dark matter.
On this day in weather history, an extremely rare ‘dark’ lunar eclipse occurred on the 5th of May, in the year 1110, but how?
Long March 5B is doing 27,600km/h in failing orbit, with eventual crash site unknown, after launching space station hub
Data obtained by bouncing radio waves off Venus – treating it, as one scientist said, like a giant disco ball – is providing new insight into Earth’s closest planetary neighbor, including a precise calculation of the duration of a Venusian day.
The atom’s nucleus is surrounded by a neutron shell just 0.28 trillionths of a millimeter thick
A first-of-its-kind study by SFU finds that Indigenous forest gardens filled with fruit and nut trees are still thriving, at least 150 years later
