Astronomy and Space

Astronomy is one of the oldest branches of science. It fascinated humans from the earliest times. Using telescopes and satellites people observe the skies, as well as theoretical and simulation work.

Astronomy and Space Science.

Astronomers study how the Universe began and evolved to its present state, how galaxies form and why our solar system looks as it does.Astronomers and space scientists at the universities around the world are one of the world’s best, working on answers to these and other questions identified in science challenges.

Researchers developed a new dark matter map in the local universe using a large set of galaxy simulations including galaxies, gasses, other visible matter, as well as dark matter. This new too will allow scientists to study dark matter filaments...
The first microsecond of Big Bang is a mystery. Studies determine the only matter that existed during the occurence of the Big Bang called "quark-gluon plasma". By using the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, researchers were able to...
STARFORGE (Star Formation in Gaseous Environments) developed the first realistic, highest-resolution 3D simulation model of star formation, evolution, and dynamics that account for stellar feedback, including jets, radiation, wind, and nearby supernovae activity. The same tool can...
Looking into the hearts of large stars is tricky. Researchers discover that as the core of massive stars there is an activity that is similar to earthquakes. Elemental nuclei mix within these massive stars impacts star explosions....
Voyager 1 - one of two sibling NASA spacecraft launched 44 years ago and now the most distant human-made object in space - still works and zooms toward infinity. The craft has long since...
Space Station Mission Simulation is a success. Past years were not good for Boeing at all. The company's flagship airliner 737 Max series of crashes followed by the set of nonconformities in the Starliner, their next-generation...
A team of international scientists, led by the Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (IGFAE) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav), has proposed a simple and novel method to bring the accuracy...
The detection of the axion would mark a key episode in the history of science. This hypothetical particle could resolve two fundamental problems of Modern Physics at the same time: the problema of Charge and Parity in...
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is giving astronomers a rare look at a Jupiter-sized, still-forming planet that is feeding off material surrounding a young star. "We just don't know very much about how giant planets...
One of the great mysteries of modern space science is neatly summed up by the view from NASA's Perseverance, which just landed on Mars: Today it's a desert planet, and yet the rover is sitting right next...
Not all stars shine brightly all the time. Some have a brightness that changes rhythmically due to cyclical phenomena like passing planets or the tug of other stars. Others show a slow change in this periodicity over...
