The afterglow from the distant neutron-star merger detected last August has continued to brighten - much to the surprise of astrophysicists studying the aftermath of the massive collision that took place about 138 million light years away and sent gravitational waves rippling through the universe.
For astronomers, astrophysicists, planetary scientists, space enthusiasts and others with an eye for the night sky, 2018 is expected to bring a variety of exciting developments. With dozens of space missions and expeditions set to get under way in 2018, launch complexes around the globe will be busy.
Astrophysicists have found that simulations of galaxy evolution must incorporate feedback from the black hole in order to reproduce the observed properties of galaxies. However, observational evidence of a connection between supermassive black holes and star formation has been lacking, until now.
Scientists believe that a far-off star has survived multiple supernovae events over the last two years. A bizarre phenomenon that calls into question what we know about the life-cycles of stars. Don't let the seemingly calm neighborhood of Earth fool you. If one sees our planet as peacefully located in the ...
Astrophysicists using radio telescopes, including the one located on the outskirts of Pune, may have resolved some nagging riddles, following the first-ever detection of gravitation waves in August this year, leading to the awarding of the 2017 Nobel Prize for physics to three US scientists. The remarkable ...

The universe is full of amazing and beautiful phenomena and astrophysicists and astronomers have looked to the stars for inspiration for thousands of years. Some of these events are hard or ...
In their respective efforts to understand the universe and all it comprises, there is a telling gap between what cosmologists and astrophysicists study and how they study it: scale. Cosmologists typically focus on the large-scale properties of the universe as a whole, such as galaxies and intergalactic medium; ...
Astrophysicists who captured an image of the Big Bang's afterglow — and confirmed the standard model of cosmology — won a US$3-million Breakthrough Prize on 3 December. The team behind NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) provided key evidence backing the theory that the ...
Astrophysicists at MIPT have developed a model for testing a hypothesis about supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies. The new model enables scientists to predict how much rotational energy a black hole loses when it emits beams of ionized matter known as astrophysical jets. The energy ...

Though they don't look like much, this blip is incredibly important to astrophysicists around the world who are trying to solve one of the biggest mysteries in science: the existence of dark matter. Scientists believe that dark matter makes up about a quarter of everything in the universe, but the tricky thing is ...
“This year will go down in the memories of astrophysicists as the year detecting cosmic objects by their gravitational wave signal became almost routine. It's really quite extraordinary that we went from the first detection being the biggest physics news of 2016 to subsequent detections in 2017 barely making ...
Updated | 2017 was a big year for gravitational wave science, which won this year's Nobel Prize and caught four new detections, including the first-ever detection of two merging neutron stars. But there are still signals astrophysicists believe should exist but that the American Laser Interferometer ...
Twenty-three percent is exotic matter: dark mass that astrophysicists believe is made up of an as-yet-detected particle. And the remainder, 73 percent, is dark energy.” Since its inception in 2012, the Breakthrough Prize has awarded close to $200 million to honor key research in physics, the life sciences and ...
They're also the most powerful, with gravity so strong it can trap light. And they're destructive, swallowing entire planets, even giant stars. Anything that falls into them vanishes…gone forever. Now, astrophysicists are realizing that black holes may be essential to how our universe evolved—their influence possibly leading to ...
However, if no experimental or analytical errors are found in either instance, astrophysicists could be facing a variance from the standard model of cosmology. So although further evaluation of the data disparities is required, the information presented by the WMAP team is recognized as a crucial element in ...

Astrophysicists at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have probed the timescale of atmospheric retention on Proxima Centauri b (PCb), which orbits the nearest star to our solar system, some four light years away. A second study questions how long oceans could survive on “water worlds” — planets ...
On Sunday, the only visible Supermoon of 2017 cozied up to the Earth, appearing bigger and brighter than usual in the night sky. This Supermoon didn't just light up the night skies, it also ignited tempers online, as astrophysicists argued the moon may not have been living up to its "super" name. That didn't ...
