Astronomers catch gravitational waves from the ear into a black hole’s symphony

Indian astronomers have released the first set of data that will be vital to an international collaboration to detect extremely weak gravitational waves by listening to the ‘symphony of black holes in the universe’. Once detected, low-frequency gravitational waves will provide scientists with a new view of the universe after the first gravitational wave was …

The mysterious light within the cluster detected by astronomers

An international team of astronomers has used a new technique to describe stars in “light within a cluster,” or the faint light found between galaxies. Image credit: suns07butterfly/Shutterstock.com We know almost nothing about the light within the group. The brightest parts of the light within the cluster are about 50 times dimmer than the darkest …

Scientists say new data about a “hot Saturn” exoplanet will be a game changer for astronomy

The James Webb Space Telescope has captured a detailed molecular and chemical image of a distant planet’s sky, another first record for the exoplanet science community. WASP-39b, better known as Bocaprins, can be found orbiting a star about 700 light-years away. It’s an exoplanet — a planet outside our solar system — about the size …

Astronomers trace 84 bright bursts back to ancient galaxies

By creating the most comprehensive catalog yet of high-energy radiation bursts called short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs), astronomers have traced these mysterious emissions to active star-forming galaxies in the distant, early universe. Astronomers have examined 84 SGRBs – the brightest explosions in the universe – and determined their galactic source. Then they examined the characteristics of …
