In one of the most fascinating discoveries in recent times, scientists have observed the genesis of rare chemical elements in the afterglow of the second-brightest gamma-ray explosion ever seen in the universe.
In a recent cosmic event that sounds more like science fiction than reality, astronomers reported the sighting of two ice giant exoplanets (planets outside our solar system) crashing into each other around a star similar to our sun. The result? A spectacular flare of light and billowing plumes of dust, like a celestial fireworks show.
In the vastness of the cosmos, a unique Earth-sized planet named LP 791-18d has captured the attention of astronomers. Distinguished by its relentless volcanic activity and a stark contrast between its perpetually light and dark hemispheres, this fascinating celestial body opens new avenues of research.
Scientists created the most detailed map of dark matter distribution across a quarter of the entire sky, extending deep into the cosmos. The new map provides insights into the universe's evolution and structure but also confirms Einstein's theory.
Scientists suggested that about 3.4 billion years ago, Mars was hit by an asteroid similar to the one that hit Earth a little over 60 million years ago. It is believed that it hit the red planet in a shallow ocean region, causing a so-called megatsunami.
