But it’s not the only volcano that has erupted this month.
The images were recently captured by the Jeanne Rich Telescope and the William Herschel Telescope. These types of phenomena are called stellar streams and this particular one is flowing through a cluster of galaxies 300 million light-years away.
At first glance you probably think you’re looking at some sort of bacteria or another microscopic creature swimming around a petri dish. However, these are actually robots, ones made completely of biological cells.
Here’s how they’re different and the same as ours.
We know our solar system is special, what with a habitable planet and so many of them circling our central star. However, researchers have now spotted a peculiar star system only 100 light-years away called HD110067 and it has 6 planets, just one of several surprises.
The Sun is quickly approaching its solar maximum, or the apex of its 11-year solar cycle where its activity ramps up ahead of its magnetic poles flipping. That was expected in summer 2025, but now experts say it will likely happen much, much sooner than that. Like, mark your holiday calendar soon.
The movies are one thing, but this is how science may actually get us there.
Mars might be known as the red planet due to all of the iron oxide in its soil, but its skies are a decidedly different story. A new image was recently captured by NASA's Odyssey orbiter and it reveals how the Martian skies are at least sometimes glowing green.
There are literally billions upon billions of galaxies out there in the cosmos, but the Milky Way is just a little bit special. It’s a spiral galaxy, which isn’t that rare, but it is exceedingly so amongst our galactic neighbors and now scientists might finally know why.
And it could put a billion people at risk of deadly diseases.
Our planet is doomed, we already know that. But Earth’s natural destruction isn’t slated for a few billion years at the earliest. However, now experts raise the question: what are the chances of a rogue star entering our solar system and destroying everything way ahead of schedule?
Black holes are some of the most mysterious and powerful forces in the universe, but what if that power could be harnessed? Well, that’s exactly what researchers from Tianjin University in China are now proposing, suggesting that the future of energy could come from tiny black holes.
Scientists in Australia are looking to finally answer an age old question.
Our planet has just received a message from deep space… one that originated some 10 million miles away. That message was from ourselves to ourselves, but it was the furthest optical message ever sent or received and it is a baseline for future deep space communications.
What if I told you this wall wasn’t built by human hands but rather a robot? This is what its developers call HEAP, or the Hydraulic Excavator for an Autonomous Purpose and it could change the way simple construction projects are done forever.
As our planet continues to warm, giant masses of ice continue to break off of the polar ice caps in the form of giant icebergs. Now, the European Space Agency has developed a new GPS satellite tracking system complete with an AI neural network all to track these giant floating icebergs.
They were discovered at the Huaca La Florida archeological site, where archeologists have just discovered five ancient mummies. The site is a 3,500-year-old pre-incan temple, belonging to the Ychsma peoples and most of the mummies found are children.
Sea turtles have long been in trouble, with urbanization and climate affecting their very existence. Now, according to a new study, experts say they face another crisis: a lack of males. However it’s probably not for the reason you might imagine.
The center of our galaxy has long been a mystery, specifically because there is a massive cloud of dust and gas at the center. But it just so happens that the James Webb Space telescopes’s infrared camera can look straight through a lot of that and these images were recently captured by NASA’s device.
Underneath our feet, deep down below the Earth’s crust and its other layers lies the core, or where the planet’s magnetic fields are generated. However, experts now say it’s changing and there might be a new layer to count amongst the others.
