Astronomers observe how two suns collect matter in a binary system

Cosmic Delivery Room: This picture shows Barnard 59, part of a huge, dark cloud of interstellar dust, called Pipe Nebula. The protobinary systems [BHB2007] 11 studied with high-resolution images are embedded in dense clouds, but can be observed with the radio telescope ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter / Submillimeter Array) at longer wavelengths. Picture credits: ESO Stars are born in the …

A strangely big planet baffles astronomers because it should not exist

A giant planet circling a tiny star 31 light-years from Earth has puzzled astronomers – because it should not actually exist. The world of gas is half the size of Jupiter and still vibrates around a star that is eight times smaller than our star Sun. Planets of this size are extremely rare, especially around small stars. The newly discovered …

Alien Life: Moon Fishing Net for Extraterrestrial Evidence, Harvard Astronomers | Science | news

The Moon could be the most efficient method of obtaining evidence of alien life, as suggested by a groundbreaking new scientific publication. The Harvard astronomers Professor Abraham Loeb and Manasvi Lingam propose in a new article, how the lunar surface could act as a "fishing net" for interstellar objects. Such objects from outside our solar system could accumulate over time …
