Fast Radio Bursts Shown To Include Lower Frequency Radio Waves Than Previously Detected

Since fast radio bursts (FRBs) were first discovered over a decade ago, scientists have puzzled over what could be generating these intense flashes of radio waves from outside of our galaxy. In a gradual process of elimination, the field of possible...

Finding Oxygen On An Alien World Doesn't Always Mean There's Life There

We now know the universe is filled with planets. By one estimate, there are more than 20 billion Earth-like worlds in our galaxy alone. But how many of them are likely to have life? And how would we know if they do? Unless they happen to send us a...

This Ultra-rare Quasar Pair Could Help Explain How Galaxies Evolve

Quasars are found throughout the Universe, but quasar pairs are rare. “We estimate that in the distant universe, for every 1,000 quasars, there is one double quasar. So finding these double quasars is like finding a needle in a haystack,” Dr....

Black Holes Like To Eat, But Have A Variety Of Table Manners

All supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies appear to have periods when they swallow matter from their close surroundings. But that is about as far as the similarities go. That's the conclusion reached by British and Dutch astronomers...

This Dying Galaxy Is Strangely Beautiful

There is a beginning and an end to everything. We often measure time in terms of how long our species tend to live, and over that relatively short span it can seem like stars, planets, and galaxies live "forever." That's not true, of course, but...

Discovery Of Rare 'quadruply Imaged Quasars' Can Help Solve Cosmological Puzzles

With the help of machine-learning techniques, a team of astronomers has discovered a dozen quasars that have been warped by a naturally occurring cosmic 'lens' and split into four similar images. Quasars are extremely luminous cores of distant...

An Intermediate-mass Black Hole Discovered Through The Gravitational Lensing Of A Gamma-ray Burst

Black holes come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Small black holes are of stellar mass. They form when a large star collapses at the end of its life. Large black holes lurk in the centers of galaxies and are millions or billions of solar...
