Hubble Uncovers a Lot of New Globular Star Clusters

Scientists may have moved a step closer towards finding the origin of galaxies. Using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered a huge cluster of stars about 300 million light-years away. The number of these star clusters reach a total of a whopping 22,426. Globular star clusters are more common than full-scale galaxies which makes…

Scientists Reveal Updated Climate Models for the Planets around TRAPPIST-1

Scientists Reveal Updated Climate Models for the Planets around TRAPPIST-1

Researchers propose that TRAPPIST-1e resembles Earth the most and it has an Oxygen-rich atmosphere to go with it. TRAPPIST-1 is a small, cool dwarf star located 39 light years or 235 trillion miles from our Sun. It is orbited by seven terrestrial (Earth-like) planets. These planets are temperate, which means the conditions there allow water…

The Movement of Earth’s Poles Led to the Current “Ice Age”

The Movement of Earth’s Poles Led to the Current “Ice Age”

Earth shifted away from its spin axis in the last 12 million years. Geophysicists from the Rice University analyzed the evidence from the Pacific Ocean to determine that the Earth has made a slight shift relative to its spin axis within the past 12 million years. The study published in the journal ‘Geophysical Research Letters’…

Scientists Detect Fireworks of Gamma Rays in Space

Scientists Detect Fireworks of Gamma Rays in Space

The interaction between a pulsar and a massive star resulted in a massive outflow of Gamma rays. An international team of astronomers discovered a Gamma-ray binary system in our galaxy. This extremely rare celestial structure was found at a distance of about 5,000 light-years from the Earth. The researchers observed that a rapidly rotating neutron…

Mars Experienced Catastrophic Floods that Created Canyons on the Planet

Massive Canyons, who have been there on Mars for 3.7 billion years, were finally detected by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter of NASA. Often referred to as the ‘Red Planet’, Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and has features that make it a hybrid of Earth and Moon. Mars has the craters resembling the ones…

Auroras Provide some Key Information about the Physics of Energetic Processes in Space

Auroras Provide some Key Information about the Physics of Energetic Processes in Space

For the first time ever since its discovery in the 1960s, researchers have been able to describe an Aurora, physically. Aurora is a natural light that can, predominantly, be seen in the skies of the high-latitude regions of the Earth. They are produced when charged particles (protons and electrons) from the solar wind and Magnetospheric…

Scientists Finally Propose a Theory about the Formation of Dark Stars

Scientists Finally Propose a Theory about the Formation of Dark Stars

The existence of quantum stars may help explain dark matter which makes up 27% of the universe. Recently, researchers discovered how quantum stars could form and be hidden throughout the universe. These strange star-like objects may theoretically act like single, giant atoms. Bright, fast bursts of cosmic radio waves that have confounded astronomers and fanned stories of…

Transforming Carbon Dioxide into Industrial Fuels

Transforming Carbon Dioxide into Industrial Fuels

Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide can help us control the Greenhouse Effect. Greenhouse gases, like Carbon Dioxide, are the most dominant contributor to environmental pollution. These gases are spewed into our atmosphere on a regular basis from heavy industry, motor vehicles, and power plants. Considering the harmful effects of these gases, a lot of efforts…

Gravitational Waves could Reveal the Shape of Wormholes

Gravitational Waves could Reveal the Shape of Wormholes

The electromagnetic radiation and light from wormholes might help in determining the shape of this exotic object. Any mathematical model which merges three dimensions of space with the one dimension of time to produce a single 4-dimensional continuum is called Space-time. This phenomenon is closely associated with Wormholes, a speculative structure that could create shortcuts…
