Our Earth is located in a fairly small Solar system. The solar system, in turn, is located on the outskirts of the Milky Way, which is part of the Virgo Supercluster. This photo shows one of the largest clusters of galaxies.
White dwarfs like the one inside the planetary nebula NGC 2440 (pictured) have a strange property — the more massive they become, the more they contract.
A new study has revealed that scientists will be able to detect planets outside the Milky Way using ripples in space-time, known as gravitational waves.
The Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year is one of the world's best astrophotography contests. The other day, the organizers published a shortlist of 2020 finalists, in which you can see mind-blowing photos of the starry sky, planets and cosmic phenomena.
The astrophotographer showed the world what the night sky looks like because of SpaceX satellites, and expressed concerns about the development of astronomy and the further sustainability of ecosystems on Earth.
Photos of young mothers with newborn babies have recently hit social networks like an avalanche. How to treat public pictures of children who themselves have not yet had time to see this world is an individual matter.

Combining long-term observations from three different telescopes has finally allowed us to find out what the dark areas in the images of the Great Red Spot on Jupiter really are.
Scientists have put forward a new idea about how, with the help of hypothetical axion particles, matter defeated antimatter in the early stages of the universe's life.
The scientist shared a stunning image of the Eskimo nebula, located in the constellation Gemini.
Life exists at a depth of several kilometers, in the hot and oxygen–deprived bowels of the Earth, and thrives there, completely uninterested in anything happening at our top.
