SpaceX is launching ‘dark satellites’ to stop its Starlink project from wreaking havoc with astronomical research. Astronomers are skeptic...
Elon Musk has promised SpaceX satellites won't interfere with scientific discoveries — but scientists aren't so sure.
Astronomers think the planet, called Proxima c, is a super-Earth that formed far from the icy region where scientists think such worlds are born.
A rare chemical that helped DNA form may have come to Earth on comets from newborn stars, astronomers find
Phosphorus is key in forming DNA, but the element is rare in the universe. Astronomers found molecules forming with the element around newborn stars
Young stars at the edge of the Milky Way appear to have come from 2 nearby galaxies. That means a galactic collision could happen sooner than predicte...
The arrival of new stars from other galaxies heralds a collision. But it could help the Milky Way "thrive," according to a physicist.
The Egyptian pyramids may align with an ancient north star. NASA scientists found that star undergoes never-before-seen eclipses.
The star that some researchers think served as the north star for the ancient Egyptians is actually a pair of stars that eclipse one other.
Look up, and you might see a star in the sky named after Singapore.
An incredible animation by a planetary scientist shows how fast each planet spins by putting them in one giant globe
Jupiter's Great Red Spot zips around 2.4 times faster than Earth, while Venus spins so slowly you can't tell it's moving backwards.
These photos of Singaporeans stopping in their tracks to watch the solar eclipse look like scenes from an apocalyptic movie
Best part is that no one had to pay a cent to watch the "show".
100 red objects in deep space vanished over the last 70 years. A group of scientists say giant alien-built structures could be to blame.
If alien technology isn't involved, the scientists say, they may have found the first evidence of stars collapsing into black holes with no explosion.
An ultra-rare solar eclipse is happening in Singapore on Boxing Day – here’s where to see the 1-min ‘ring of fire’
The phenomenon will happen just over 1 minute only - and the next time to catch it is 2063.
