Shockwaves shake the cosmic web

Astronomers have detected huge shockwaves shaking the cosmic web that connects all the galaxies in the universe.

A rapidly growing black hole

This Arp 299 system consists of a pair of galaxies, IC 694 and NGC 3690, which underwent a close encounter about 700 million years ago. As a result of this interaction, the system underwent a fierce burst of star formation. In the past fifteen years or so, six supernovae have exploded in the outermost regions of the galaxy, making this system a prominent supernova factory. Credit: NASA

Astronomers have discovered a rapidly growing black hole in one of the most well-known galaxies in the primordial universe

James Webb Captures Star Formation

The James Webb Space Telescope captured this image of a galaxy cluster (SMACS0723). The five magnified galaxies are so distant that we observe them as they were when the universe was between one and five billion years old. Credit: NASA

From the image posted by James Webb on July 31, researchers have studied the formation of stars in the early moments of the Cosmos.

A research team has discovered a rocky planet Wolf 1069b just 31 light-years away from Earth, very similar to our planet.

Intact Meteorites Found in Antarctica

A recent expedition to Antarctica has discovered meteorites using satellite analysis and AI to pinpoint the search area.

A new map of the Universe highlights an incomprehensible discrepancy between the accepted cosmological model and the results obtained.

James Webb Captures Galaxies Formation

James Webb Telescope has captured the formation of galaxies, expanding our knowledge on the birth of these cosmic objects.
