Gemini Observatory Identified a Key Fingerprint of an Extremely Distant Quasar

The brightest quasar in the history of the universe was observed at a distance of 12.8 billion light-years. Scientists are now studying light that has been around since the beginning of time. An observation from Gemini Observatory found a distant quasar with the brightest radio emission ever detected. Astronomers were able to see the light…

Double Star System Flipped its Planet-Forming Disc into Pole Position

Astronomers have finally found a double star system that has flipped its surrounding disc beyond the orbital plane of its stars. According to the latest research published in the journal ‘Nature Astronomy’, an international team of astronomers used the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) to locate a double star system that has flipped its planet-forming…

A Powerful Wind of Molecules has been detected at a Distance of 12 Billion Light Years

A Powerful Wind of Molecules has been detected at a Distance of 12 Billion Light Years

Scientists might have found the self-regulating mechanism of galaxies. Continuous advancements in technology enable humanity to go deep into space. A couple of months back, astronomers found the brightest object (a quasar) ever discovered in the universe at a distance of 13 billion light years. Before that, Icarus (the most distant star) was also detected.…
