Discovery of Water on the Moon: Astronomers Peek New Ice in the Southern Pole of the Moon | Science | news

Water on the Moon is found around the South Pole, where deep impact craters are wrapped in permanent darkness. Until recently, astronomers believed that water was left behind by aquatic comets and volcanic activity billions of years ago. However, satellite data collected by NASA has revealed younger-looking ice deposits in smaller craters. The "surprising" discovery suggests that there are unknown …

Astronomers observe a flickering black hole in our own galaxy

A Milky Way flickering black hole was captured in unprecedented detail with a new high frame rate technique that helps us understand the wild dynamics of these most puzzling objects. The black hole is called MAXI J1820 + 070 and was discovered in 2018. It is about seven times the size of the Sun and only 10,000 light-years from Earth. …

Astronomers discover filaments of the cosmic web that held the early universe together

Using a simulation, astronomers illuminate the faint gaseous filaments that make up the cosmic web in a huge cluster of galaxies. The Hubble Space Telescope's wide-field camera observed Saturn in June, when the planet approached Earth the next year, about 1.36 billion kilometers away. An artistic impression of the massive bursts of ionizing radiation exploding from the center of the …

Astronomers discover "cosmic pretzel" 700 light-years from Earth

This is a "pretzel" that will definitely make you thirsty. Astronomers have taken an incredible picture of two newborn stars in the system [BHB2007] 11, which is described as "cosmic pretzel" and consists of a network of gas and dust filaments. "We see two compact sources, which we interpret as circumstellar disks around the two young stars," study lead author …
