New predictions and algorithms offer ways to explore black holes
The discovery also allows the team a unique view into the processes that accompany the formation of black holes
The Parker Solar Probe will help scientists learn more about how our closest star functions
Radio observations of a cold, dense cloud of molecular gas reveal more than a dozen unexpected molecules
The high schoolers turned scientists published their findings this week, thanks to a research mentorship program at the Center for Astrophysics; Harvard and Smithsonian
New research indicates that limited resources on Earth's satellite could cause crowding and competition as site selection, extraction become reality
From a distance, these carbon planets would be difficult to tell apart from more Earth-like worlds. Their masses and physical sizes would be similar
Humanity is on the threshold of being able to detect signs of alien life on other worlds. By studying exoplanet atmospheres, we can look for gases like oxygen and methane that only coexist if replenished by life. But those gases come from simple life forms like microbes. What about advanced civilizations? Would they leave any detectable signs?
MIT/Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics unveil "Illustris," a sophisticated computer program to recreate the evolution of the universe in high fidelity.
