Newborn giant planet grazes its star

An international team of astronomers has announced the discovery of a very young hot Jupiter orbiting in the immediate vicinity of a star that is barely two million years old—the stellar equivalent of a week-old infant. This first-ever evidence that hot Jupiters can appear at such an early stage represents a major

Citizen scientists discover huge galaxy cluster

Two volunteer astronomers have had a galaxy cluster named after them after finding the galaxy in an international citizen science project co-led by ANU. The two Russians identified the huge C-shaped galaxy cluster from much smaller images of

‘Wasteful’ galaxies launch heavy elements into surrounding halos and deep space, CU-Boulder study finds

Spiral galaxies like the Milky Way actively form stars and have a blueish color while elliptical galaxies have little star formation and appear red. Both types of galaxies contain tens to hundreds of billions of stars that create heavy elements. After running a series of simulations, the researchers found that the
