Paris (ESA) Jun 2016 - Astronomers have discovered a vast cloud of high-energy particles called a wind nebula around a rare ultra-magnetic neutron star, or magnetar, for the first time. The find offers a unique window int

Describing the measurement as providing 'unprecedented' accuracy, astronomers at Rutgers University said the black hole (illustrated) will help them determine the fate of large galaxies.

The Spectacular Spiral Galaxy ESO Located about 155 million light-years away towards the southern constellation Centaurus (the Centaur), ESO.

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have found compelling evidence that two infant planets — each about the mass of Saturn — are forming around HD 163296, a young star located approximately 400 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius. Above: ALMA image of the protoplanetary disk surrounding the young star HD 163296 as seen in dust.

Multiple arcs are revealed around Betelgeuse, the nearest red supergiant star to Earth, in a new image from ESA's Herschel space observatory. The star and its arc-shaped shields could collide with an intriguing dusty 'wall' in years.
