We Are Currently In The Stelliferous Era Of The Universe, What Came Before And What Will Come Next?

People like to place neat things in boxes and sections. We like these regular sections. Therefore, it is not surprising that the chronological epochs of the universe also divided into epochs, epochs and epochs, where our universe was working very differently. We know where we are and what the uni.....

Astronomers Use Hubble to Work out Exactly When This Star Went Supernova

Astronomers Use Hubble to Work out Exactly When This Star Went Supernova

When certain mass stars go out of fuel, they end their lives in spectacular fashion. The outer layers are no longer pushed by the energy produced in the stellar core, fall under gravity, accelerate and eventually compress everything beneath them where the matter is converted into energy. This ene.....

Discovery of “Cotton-Candy” Planet Helps Rewrite How Gas Giants Can Form

Discovery of “Cotton-Candy” Planet Helps Rewrite How Gas Giants Can Form

Gas giants can form on easier terms than previously believed. This new insight comes from a detailed investigation of a strange “super-puff” planet, a gas giant that swells near the stars. These planets are often referred to as “cotton-candy” planets due to their low densi.....
