Astronomers may have discovered the youngest planet ever found in our galaxy. The planet is thought to be orbiting AS 209, a young star in the Ophiuchus constellation estimated to be just about 1.6 million years young. Research recently published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters using the Atacama Large... Read more...
Samsung is gearing up for its Galaxy Unpacked event on August 10, 2022. The event will showcase the South Korean tech giant's latest innovations and is expected to reveal the upcoming updates to its foldable devices. Foldable devices have become more popular as the design, function and durability of the devices... Read more...
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) continues to produce spectacular images from deep space. One of its latest pictures shows the chaos of the Cartwheel Galaxy, revealing new data surrounding star formation and the galaxy's central black hole. The Hubble telescope is still producing awe inspiring imagery of... Read more...
If you own it, you should be able to fix it. That’s the essence of the Right-To-Repair movement. Advocates have been pushing back against the trend of companies intentionally making products that are less and less serviceable, and their efforts are beginning to pay dividends. Recently, iFixit started making inroads... Read more...
Less than a week after the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope were released, a group of scientists have revealed that the telescope may have located a galaxy that existed 13.5 billion years ago. The galaxy could date back to just 300 million years after the Big Bang (just a baby, in cosmic terms)... Read more...
It didn't take long for social media sleuths to crack Samsung's cryptic code on Twitter earlier today, which when deciphered revealed the date for its Galaxy Unpacked 2022 event. Lest anyone need it stated without a decoder key, though, Samsung has just officially announced the date and time—it takes place on August... Read more...
What appear to be official renders of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 have been shared online. The leak, from a highly reputable source, comes about a month ahead of an expected launch event. Images show the purported Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 from both left and right sides, and both fully opened and flexed at 90 degrees... Read more...
A group of volunteers with Galaxy Zoo have been scouring data, using machine learning and an AI assistant, named Zoobot, to locate an unprecedented number of ring galaxies. The cyborg approach has been able to identify 40,000 ring galaxies so far, which is six times more than previously known. The universe is... Read more...
Astronomers have detected an eerily steady radio signal from deep in space. The newly discovered fast radio burst (FRB), an extremely strong burst of radio waves of unknown astrophysical origin, and they last 1,000 times longer than the average FRB. Teams of scientists and astronomers are continuously searching for... Read more...
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is one of the most highly anticipated missions in the space agency's recent history. It is set to capture deeper images of our universe than ever before. Even though the spacecraft has traveled nearly one million miles into deep space, its intended journey is just... Read more...
An amateur astronomer discovered an ultra-faint dwarf galaxy, dubbed Pegasus V, hanging out on the outer fringes of the Andromeda Galaxy. The revelation came while astronomer Giuseppe Donatiello was searching through archival data processed by NSF's NOIRLab's Community Science and Data Center. Donatiello happened... Read more...
The European Space Agency (ESA) released new data about the Milky Way that includes an eerie symphony of starquakes from its Gaia mission. ESA's Gaia mission is aimed at creating the most accurate and complete multi-dimensional map of the Milky Way. Space is no stranger to supernatural sounds. NASA released audio... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope continues to capture images ahead of the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The 3D-Dash program is a high resolution survey that will allow researchers to locate rare objects and targets for JWST once it becomes fully operational. Hubble began its journey collecting...

Skywatchers are in for a treat this month, as five planets will align in the early morning sky. In addition to the five planets, the Moon will be joining the party at the end of the month. April provided amateur astronomers with the opportunity to see four planets aligned in the early morning sky without the need... Read more...
Astronomers in Japan have discovered faint radio emissions covering a gigantic galaxy with an energetic black hole at its center for the first time ever. The team hopes the new finding will help unlock how black holes interact with its host galaxies by utilizing the same technique with other quasars. A quasar is... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured a tempestuous gravitational dance between two companion galaxies. NGC 3226 and NGC 3227, together known as Arp 94, are located somewhere between 50 and 60 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation Leo. Hubble continues to send back stunning images ahead of the... Read more...
One of the latest images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captures the central region of a gigantic elliptical galaxy located around 100 million light-years from Earth. Galaxy NGC 474 has a mysterious series of complex shells that surround its core, but astronomers have a theory of what they might be. Elliptical... Read more...
New data suggests that post-starburst galaxies hold onto and compress large amounts of highly-concentrated, turbulent gas, but not to form stars as expected. The new data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) shows that these galaxies do not scatter all of their star-forming fuel, as previously... Read more...
Hubble has provided the imagery necessary to identify a black hole that is growing at a breakneck speed in the early universe. Astronomers believe that it could be the "missing link" between young star-forming galaxies and the first supermassive black holes. Until recently, a supermassive black hole, known as... Read more...
A group of astronomers and scientists have found the most distant astronomical object ever, a galaxy far, far away. The galaxy candidate, named HD1, is 13.5 billion light-years away and is discussed in a new research paper. A group of international astronomers, including a team of researchers from the Center for... Read more...
Hubble is still capturing breathtaking photos of distant galaxies, as it sends back an incredible image of a supermassive black hole 110 million light-years from Earth. The image captures tendrils of dark dust interweaving across the heart of galaxy NGC 7172. The Hubble Space Telescope continues to take incredible... Read more...
Performance comparisons and benchmarks are a big deal in some tech circles. In the smartphone space in particular, performance can vary wildly between devices due to the tight thermal constraints and passively-cooled nature of most devices. Offering competitive performance in the smartphone market is extremely... Read more...
