Why researchers consider TOI-1075 b one of the most massive super-Earths ever discovered.

  New data has revealed that TOI-1075 b is one of the most massive super-Earths discovered so far. The planet, about 10 times the mass of Earth, orbits a small, red-orange star located 200 light-years away. This star’s orbit has an incredibly quick speed, taking only 14 ½ hours to make a full cycle. As […]

Hubble and Spitzer have discovered two exoplanet “water worlds” orbiting a red dwarf star.

  Kepler-138 is a red dwarf star located 218 light-years away with three identified planets, Kepler-138 b, c, and d. In this illustration, super-Earth Kepler-138 d is in the foreground, with Kepler-138 c to the left and Kepler-138 b in the background, seen in silhouette transiting its central star. The low density of planets Kepler-138 […]

Hubble captured an image of the surrounding star-forming region on its 33rd anniversary.

In the year 1990, Hubble Space Telescopes were launched by NASA, and on April 25, it will be 33 years since the launch of Hubble, and Astronomers are celebrating NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope’s 33rd launch anniversary with an awe-inspiring glimpse of a nearby star-forming region, NGC 1333.The nebula is located in the Perseus molecular cloud, […]

Was Webb able to uncover never-before-seen details in Cassiopeia A.

The explosion of a star is one of the most dramatic events in space, and the remains left behind can be even more captivating. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured a remarkable mid-infrared image of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (or Cas A), which was produced by a stellar explosion 340 years ago from […]

How a star at the end of its life inflates its outer layers into the surrounding space.

  This image describes a bipolar planetary nebula named PN Hb 12, which is also known as Hubble 12. The nebula is located in the constellation of Cassiopeia. The nebula’s unique and striking shape, which resembles a butterfly or an hourglass, was created as a result of a Sun-like star nearing the end of its […]

Hubble investigates the globular star cluster NGC 2419.

  The image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of the globular star cluster NGC 2419 captures its beauty and fascination. A globular cluster is a spherical group of stars that orbits the center of a galaxy, and in this case, it is our very own Milky Way. This star cluster lies at a distance […]

Webb captured a comprehensive view of the Uranian system, which includes six of the 27 known moons.

  This incredible zoomed-in image of Uranus, captured by Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) on February 6, 2023, reveals stunning views of the planet’s rings. In this representative-color image, the planet displays a blue hue made by combining data from two different filters (F140M, F300M) at 1.4 and 3.0 microns, which are shown as blue and […]

The Hubble Telescope Captures a Striking Trail of a Runaway Black Hole’s Starry Journey.

  This archival image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captures an extraordinary phenomenon: a 200 000-light-year-long chain of young blue stars. Initially dismissed as an imaging artifact, follow-up spectroscopic observations reveal that the linear feature is a bridge created by a supermassive black hole ejected from a galaxy at the upper right. Gas was […]

Hubble has discovered double quasars living in the core of galaxies.

  This artist’s concept illustrates the remarkable glow of two quasars residing in the hearts of two merging galaxies,The gravitational tug-of-war between the two galaxies triggers a tempest of star formation. Quasars are brilliant beacons of intense light from the depths of faraway galaxies and are powered by supermassive black holes eating up matter falling […]

ISRO successfully conducted the Reusable Launch Vehicle Autonomous Landing Mission (RLV LEX) at the Aeronautical Test Range (ATR).

ISRO conducted the Reusable Launch Vehicle Autonomous Landing Mission (RLV-LEX) successfully on April 2, 2023 at the Aeronautical Test Range (ATR) in Chitradurga, Karnataka. This was the first successful test of its kind conducted by ISRO and marks a major milestone in the development of reusable launch vehicles. The RLV-LEX mission involved launching a model […]

The Hubble Space Telescope shows a bright image of Z 229-15.

Z 229-15, the luminous celestial object captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, lies at a distance of 390 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra. It has been identified as an active galactic nucleus (AGN), quasar, and Seyfert galaxy, prompting the question as to which definition truly applies. The answer is that Z […]

Galactic jellyfish studied by the Hubble telescope.

  The galaxy JW100 (lower right) features prominently in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, its streams of star-forming gas resembling dangling tentacles and earning it the nickname of a ‘jellyfish’ galaxy. Located over 800 million light-years away, in the constellation Pegasus, JW100 is an example of ram pressure stripping – a process […]
