Hubble Finds a Massive Planet – 9 Times the Size of Jupiter – Forming Through a Violent Process

This is an artist’s illustration of a massive, newly forming exoplanet called AB Aurigae b. Researchers used new and archival data from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Subaru Telescope to confirm this protoplanet is forming through an intense and violent process, called disk instability. Disk instability is a top-down approach, much different from the … Read more

Scientists reveal the massive bubbles at the center of the Milky Way galaxy

Credit: ESA / Gaia / DPAC. In 2020, the X-ray telescope eRosita took images of two enormous bubbles extending far above and below the center of our galaxy. Since then, astronomers have debated their origin. A new study suggests the bubbles are a result of a powerful jet of activity from the supermassive black hole … Read more

Massive Asteroid Impact Crater in Greenland Occurred a Few Million Years After Dinosaurs Went Extinct
