Advancing Basic Science for Humanity
Researchers have a newly precise way to measure the size and age of the universe and how rapidly it is expanding, on a par with other techniques.
A massive planet outside our Solar System is being distorted and destroyed by its host star, a finding that helps explain the unexpectedly large size of the planet, WASP-12b.
New images from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope show where supernova remnants emit radiation a billion times more energetic than visible light.
Little is know about one of a black hole's fundamental properties, spin. But spin may be crucial to understanding the dynamics of a black hole's host galaxy.
Researchers say proposed satellite could represent astronomy’s ‘next big leap’ — one that may help find signs of life elsewhere in the universe.
High-energy cosmic rays appear to be coming from supernova remnants, the dying remains of exploded stars.
The Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, opened the new building housing the Kavli Institute for Cosmology.
