Scientists in Japan have identified about 1,800 new supernovae using the Subaru Telescope equipped with an 870 megapixel digital camera.
Scientists have simulated the violent collisions between superluminous supernovae and its surrounding gas, which then emit extreme brightness.
The color of supernovae during a specific phase could help researchers detect the most distant and oldest supernovae in the Universe.
Stars form when gases cool and collapse, but supermassive black holes release winds that heat up the gases in their host galaxy, preventing this from happening.
Einstein’s hundred year old theory of relativity still holds, according to a 3D map of 3,000 galaxies 13 billion light years from Earth.
The partnership between Japan's Kavli IPMU and the Institute of Statistical Mathematics will bring statistics, data analytics and modeling to the field of astronomy.
Thanks to powerful space telescopes, scientists have captured the carbon monoxide emissions of starbursts in the early universe.
Citizen scientists have helped to identify 29 new potential gravitational lenses, galaxies so huge that their gravitational force bends light.
