Astronomers measure tiny black hole in the nearby dwarf galaxy

When people think of a black hole, they typically imagine a large, burning cosmic being, millions or billions of times larger than our sun. However, not all black holes are supermassive, and the smaller ones are also important. A team of scientists from the University of Michigan measured the mass of a small black hole in a nearby dwarf galaxy …

Our one-sided moon was probably hit by a dwarf planet

The familiar lunar perspective that people see when they look up at night shows a face with dark "seas" and bright craters. The mysterious opposite, first revealed when people started sending probes and then humans in the 1960s, is far more cratered. But what did the two sides do? completely different? That was a matter of debate. Now researchers around …

A collision with a dwarf planet has probably caused our moon to go awry

Artistic representation of a massive collision of two large objects. Image: NASA / JPL-Caltech Our moon has a near and a far side with dramatically different geological features. This anomaly has puzzled scientists for years, but recent computer simulations suggest that the asymmetric disposition of the moon is due to an age-old collision with another object – possibly a dwarf …

Wild observations show how white dwarf stars merge into something new

The fog containing the strange object Image: Gvaramadze et al (Nature (2019)) Astronomers have observed evidence of a hot, spinning star that blows 10,000 winds outwards, miles per second, apparently made up of a relatively brief collision of white dwarf stars. This is one of the clearest proofs that these stars collide and merge. White dwarfs are incredibly dense, luminous …

Dwarf Fortress is the craziest game you (probably) have never heard of

Share. It's by far the deepest – and perhaps most disturbing – Sim game out there. By Justin Davis Dwarf Fortress is the most incredible and impressive video game you've probably never played. Anyone who has enjoyed games like Rimworld, Factorio, and Prison Architect has been continuously evolving since (!!!) by Tarn Adams (!!!) and has seen some of the …

Extreme Dwarf Planet FarFarOut could be the farthest known object in the solar system

Artistic conception of Farout, an object 120 AU from Earth. New observations indicate that another object is even farther away at 140 AU. Image: Roberto Molar Candanosa / Carnegie Institution for Science Just months after FarOut, the farthest known object in the solar system, was discovered, the same team of astronomers discovered the faint but unacknowledged glimmer of one Object …

NASA's Hubble telescope encounters a dwarf galaxy 30 million light years away – Technology News, Firstpost

Press Trust of India 03. February 2019 17:59:08 IST The Hubble Space Telescope has unexpectedly discovered a dwarf galaxy in our cosmic backyard, only 30 million light-years away. Scientists say. Researchers used NASA's NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope to study white dwarf stars in the globular cluster NGC 6752. According to the European Space Agency (ESA), the goal is …

Astronomers discover the first direct clues to white dwarf stars that solidify into crystals

White dwarf star in the solidification process. Picture credits: University of Warwick / Mark Garlick The first direct evidence of white dwarf stars solidifying into crystals was discovered by astronomers at the University of Warwick, and our skies are filled with them. Observations have revealed that dead remnants of stars such as our sun called white dwarfs have a core …
