Astronomers Capturer Last Moments of Star Devoured by Black Hole

Astronomers Capturer Last Moments of Star Devoured by Black Hole

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Through constant vigilance and some good fortune, astronomers have managed to capture the moment a supermassive black hole in a galaxy 215 million light-years away tore a star apart. - Science news - Using telescopes from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and other organisations around the world, astronomers have spotted a rare blast of light from a star...

Astronomers Find Evidence Planets Start to Form While Infant Stars Still Growing

Astronomers Find Evidence Planets Start to Form While Infant Stars Still Growing

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Astronomers have found compelling evidence that planets start to form while infant stars are still growing. - Science news - The high-resolution image obtained with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) shows a young proto-stellar disk with multiple gaps and rings of dust. This new result, just published in Nature, shows the youngest and most...

Astronomers Find Six Galaxies Trapped in Web of Supermassive Black Hole

Astronomers Find Six Galaxies Trapped in Web of Supermassive Black Hole

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – With the help of ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have found six galaxies lying around a supermassive black hole when the Universe was less than a billion years old. - Science news - This is the first time such a close grouping has been seen so soon after the Big Bang and the finding helps us better understand how supermassive black holes, one of...

Astronomers Reveal Most Extreme Planets Ever Discovered

Astronomers Reveal Most Extreme Planets Ever Discovered

TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Astronomers have taken detailed observations of an incredibly extreme exoplanet, detecting brutal surface temperatures in the region of 3,200 degrees Celsius (5,792 degrees Fahrenheit). - Science news - Those temperatures – measured by the European Space Agency's CHaracterising ExOPlanet Satellite (or CHEOPS) – are enough to melt all rocks and metals, and even turn...

Astronomers Detect Giant Planet Orbiting Dead Star

Astronomers Detect Giant Planet Orbiting Dead Star

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Around 80 light-years from Earth lies the white dwarf WD 1856, a dead star that entered the final stages of its life around 6 billion years ago. - Science news - This slow death is typically quite lonely. In the process of dying, some stars will drastically expand, becoming a huge "red giant," like Betelgeuse, and engulfing any of the planets orbiting close by....

Astronomers Spot Potential Sign of Life in Venus Atmosphere

Astronomers Spot Potential Sign of Life in Venus Atmosphere

TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Astronomers have detected a rare molecule in the atmosphere of Venus that could be produced by living organisms, according to a new study. - Science news - Two telescopes in Hawaii and Chile spotted in the thick Venusian clouds the chemical signature of phosphine, a noxious gas that on Earth is only associated with life, according to a study in Monday’s journal Nature...

Astronomers Puzzled by Milky Way-Like Galaxy Found in Deep Space

Astronomers Puzzled by Milky Way-Like Galaxy Found in Deep Space

TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Twelve billion years ago, when all of space was just a fledgling baby universe, a young galaxy reminiscent of the Milky Way was flaring to life deep in the cosmos. - Science news - Astronomers have often thought of this early universe as a chaotic, extreme environment where galaxies are unstable and violent. New research suggests those assumptions may be incorrect,...

Astronomers Spot Extremely Rare ‘Space Butterfly’ in Stars

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) - Newly taken pictures show an interstellar phenomenon fluttering its ethereal wings in stunning detail. - World news - The spectacular display comes from a highly symmetrical gas nebula known as NGC 2899. The image was captured as part of the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Cosmic Gems program, for the purposes of education and public outreach, RT...

Astronomers Use Supercomputer to Model Hypernova

Astronomers Use Supercomputer to Model Hypernova

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - Researchers studying the formation and outward spread of elements in the earliest days of the universe have created a 300-day simulation of a hypernova using one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. - Science news - A team led by Ke-Jung Chen from the Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics in Taiwan concentrated its efforts on hypernovae –...

Astronomers Discover Universe’s ‘Missing Matter’

Astronomers Discover Universe’s ‘Missing Matter’

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – When Jean-Pierre Macquart arrived home from work one night in 2019, he was buzzing with excitement. He'd just helped solve a decades-old cosmic mystery with the help of a team of international astronomers. He couldn't wait to tell his wife. - Science news - Macquart had successfully weighed the universe for the first time, finally discovering where half of all...
