An international team of astronomers announced the two earliest and most distant galaxies yet confirmed were detected by the James Webb Space Telescope. The two galaxies are believed to date back to just 300 million years after the Big Bang. Over the past two years, scientists have utilized NASA’s Webb telescope to... Read more...
NASA’s Webb telescope recently played peek-a-boo with the star-forming region NGC 604 and, in the process, spotted cavernous bubbles and stretched-out filaments of gas 2.73 million light-years from Earth. The features give scientists and astronomers a more detailed peek into star birth than seen previously in the... Read more...
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope reached back into time to reveal what are believed to be some of the earliest stars to shine in the universe. Webb also detected the most distant supermassive black hole seen to date at the center of galaxy GN-z11. Galaxy GN-z11 was first detected by the Hubble Space Telescope. The... Read more...
A team of astronomers has measured the heaviest pair of supermassive black holes ever detected. The measurements stem from archival data collected from NOIRLab’s Gemini North telescope on Manunakea in Hawaii. Supermassive black holes have captured the imagination of astronomers and scientists since their initial... Read more...
T.M. Roh, president of Samsung Electronics’ mobile business, hinted that Galaxy AI features might require customers to pay a fee of some kind in the future. Galaxy AI is one of the big, new additions the company is adding to its Galaxy S24 line of phones as it does battle with Apple for top spot in the mobile market... Read more...
Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series is getting compelling features thanks to Google’s Gemini AI, alongside the usual hardware upgrades, that should make them a solid smartphone option. Google says that this partnership means that Galaxy S24 users will be the first to experience quicker access to information with improvements... Read more...
The discovery of a second universe-defying megastructure in the remote universe is making astronomers rethink some of the basic assumptions about cosmology. The Big Ring is the second of these ultra-large structures to be found by PhD student Alexia Lopez. The Big Ring is located 9.2 billion light-years from Earth... Read more...
According to a new study, astronomers were stunned to find a star that originated outside of the galaxy sitting near the supermassive black hole that sits at the center of the Milky Way. The find marks the first time a star of extragalactic origin has been identified so close to the supermassive black hole. While... Read more...
Astronomers have identified an object in deep space captured by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) as being an elusive dusty star-forming galaxy. Object AzTECC71 first appeared as a blob from ground-based telescopes before later vanishing completely from Hubble’s view. The image captured by Webb is not the... Read more...
Astronomers have found a key ingredient for life in the outer reaches of the Milky Way galaxy. The discovery challenges our understanding of the origins of the element and potentially extends the galactic habitable zone. The element that was found in a very unexpected location by a group of astronomers from the... Read more...
Scientists using the Telescope Array in Utah detected the second highest-energy cosmic ray ever. The singular subatomic particle was equivalent to dropping a brick on someone’s toe from waist height. The Telescope Array comprises 507 surface detector stations arranged in a square grid located outside of Delta... Read more...
Samsung has just initiated a pretty aggressive Android 14 update schedule for not only its latest flagships, but also to some surprising models in its lineup. Read on to find out if the well-received Android 14 will be coming to your device. The stable version of Samsung's One Ui 6.0 (based on Android 14) is coming... Read more...
Using data from NASA's Webb telescope, astronomers have detected a barred spiral galaxy in the early universe they say is a Milky Way twin. Surprisingly, the newly found galaxy, ceers-2112, is believed to have formed only 2 billion years after the Big Bang. It was believed that it should take around 7 billion years... Read more...
NASA used images from its Webb and Hubble telescopes to create a panchromatic image that will get everyone into the Christmas spirit. The resulting image of galaxy cluster MACS0146 combines visible and infrared light to create one of the most comprehensive views of the universe ever. MACS0146 is located about 4.13... Read more...
A global team of astronomers detected an eight-billion-year-old fast radio burst (FRB) that is the most ancient to date. The record-breaking FRB destroyed the old record by 50 percent. FRBs are extraordinary events that generate as much energy in a thousandth of a second as the Sun does in a year. Because they also... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured the blue spiral arms of a galaxy far, far away in stunning detail. NGC 6951, an intermediate spiral galaxy 78 million light-years away, was first discovered by French astronomer Jerome Coggia in 1887. According to NASA, NGC 6951 is often classified as a Type II Seyfert galaxy... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured a rare and bright burst of light between two galaxies, adding even more mystery to this known phenomenon. These random events, called Luminous Fast Blue Optical Transients (LFBOTs), only seem to occur once a year or so and last only a matter of days. The first LFBOT was... Read more...
An international team of researchers has published a new paper confirming a supermassive black hole 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun indeed spins. The study, led by Chinese researcher Dr. CUI Yuzhu, was conducted using a global network of radio telescopes. Supermassive black holes at the center of active... Read more...
The 2023 Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest produced some of the most alluring and breathtaking images of deep space by amateur astronomers and photographers worldwide. The winning image even revealed a never-before-seen phenomena in an area of the night sky that is often observed. When one ponders new... Read more...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captures an alluring image of a cosmic cluster utilizing gravitational lensing. Hubble captured the image using two of its instruments, the Wide Field Camera 3 and the Advanced Camera for Surveys. Hubble continues to hold its own in terms of providing spectacular imagery of deep space... Read more...
