The processes that bring about "Hoptunes" likely extend to the rise of hot, Jupiter-like gas giants, too, pointing to a shared origin.
Observation has helped an international team of researchers validate theoretical predictions about the such stellar explosions.
Installation of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument begins at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona.
MIT's Mark Vogelsberger and an international astrophysics team have created a new model pointing to black holes’ role in galaxy formation.
Tech will enable future x-ray missions to detect high-energy astrophysical sources such as black hole winds and hot gas in the cosmic web.
The planetary system’s dense configuration gives clues to its formation.
Also announces discovery of eleven stellar streams, evidence of small galaxies being eaten by the Milky Way.
With a telescope, scientists have for the first time identified normal star-forming galaxies at a very early stage in cosmic history.
Cambridge astronomers have made the first investigation of the sensitivity of the GAIA satellite to ultra-low frequency gravitational waves.
