Rocky ‘Super-Earth’ Planet Discovered near Milky Way’s Old Star

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Scientists have discovered a huge 'super Earth' planet near one of the oldest stars in the galaxy. - Science news - The planet, called TOI-561b, is about 50 per cent larger than Earth, but requires less than half a day to orbit its star.This is partly due to the planet's close proximity to its star, which also results in blistering surface temperatures of over...

Scientists Discover Extremely Rare Time Bomb Star System

TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Researchers revealed Sunday they have discovered a new star system that belongs to one of the rarest star types in the known universe, but experts say it is unlike anything they have seen before. - Science news - Of all the numerous and wide-ranging types of stars astronomers and astrophysicists have discovered throughout history, perhaps one of the rarest is a star type...

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....

Fastest Ever Star Discovered Orbiting Milky Way’s Supermassive Black Hole

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Astronomers have just discovered the quickest star at the center of the Milky Way that is orbiting around Sagittarius A black hole at 8% the speed of light. - World news - At the center of our galaxy is Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), a humongous black hole about four million times the mass of our sun. Being so big, its gravitational effects are extreme and they can...

First of Kind ‘Teardrop’ Star Discovered That Pulsates on One Side

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – A never-before-seen star that is tear-shaped and pulsates on just one side has been discovered by astronomers. - Science news - The star, named HD74423, sits 1,500 light-years away and is part of a binary system with a red dwarf, which researchers say is the cause of the warped shape and unusual pulsations. Scientists recently discovered this very unusual star,...

Neutron Star Measured at 11km Radius

Neutron Star Measured at 11km Radius

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – An international research team has obtained new measurements of how big neutron stars are. - Science news - To do so, they combined a general first-principles description of the unknown behavior of neutron star matter with multi-messenger observations of the binary neutron star merger GW170817. Their results, which appeared in Nature Astronomy today, are more...
