Advancing Basic Science for Humanity
Prof. Sara Seager previews a new era of discovery as a leader of the TESS mission, which is expected to find some 20,000 extrasolar planets.
The SuperCDMS SNOLAB project, a multi-institutional effort led by SLAC, is expanding the hunt for dark matter.
China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST), still under commissioning, reached another milestone.
A team of researchers has found a relationship between quantum physics and thermodynamics.
Satellite developed by MIT aims to discover thousands of nearby exoplanets, including at least 50 Earth-sized ones.
Black holes in these environments could combine repeatedly to form objects bigger than anything a single star could produce.
Large concentrations of sulfites and bisulfites in shallow lakes may have set the stage for Earth’s first biological molecules.
Observation made possible because the star's brightness had been magnified by the gravity of a larger object in front of it.
Signals suggest black hole emits a jet of energy proportional to the stellar material it gobbles up.
The processes that bring about "Hoptunes" likely extend to the rise of hot, Jupiter-like gas giants, too, pointing to a shared origin.
