An artist's impression of the seven planets of the TRAPPIST-1 system. Most are rich in volatile materials such as water.

TRAPPIST-1 Worlds Are Rocky and Rich in Water, New Research Uncovers

Pictured is an artist's impression of the galaxy, known as COSMOS-AzTEC-1. Around its central black hole are two clouds of cosmic gas from which new stars form.

Astronomers capture the highest resolution image yet of a ‘monster galaxy’ 12 billion light years from Earth that creates new stars 1,000 times faster than the Milky Way.

Dwarf galaxies, such as the one captured here by the Hubble Telescope, are actually one of the most common types of galaxy in the universe.

Interstellar Travel Requires a Long-Term Approach (and Humans Are Too Impatient)

The explosion was so bright it initially appeared to originate from our own galaxy.

Mystery of the massive explosion 200 million light years away: Strange flash 100 times brighter than a supernova that is growing at an incredible rate baffles scientists.

The object is so bright scientists can see the shadows of objects in front of the supermassive black hole.

It is the brightest quasar that can be seen in visual or ultraviolet light.

Gamers around the world helped physicists crowdsource a reality check.

Biggest Test Yet Shows Einstein Was Wrong About ‘Spooky Action at a Distance’.

Pictured is an artist's impression of Proxima b, a rocky planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, a dim red dwarf star that is about 4.25 light years away from the sun.

Are we too late? Nearby Earth-like exoplanet Proxima b slammed by SUPER FLARE that may have wiped out any possibility of alien life.

The mystery of dark matter has deepened as scientists reveal the elusive substance does not interact with galaxies. Pictured is an artist's impression of four central galaxies at the heart of cluster Abell 3827 which was thought to interact with dark matter after research in 2015.

Mystery of dark matter deepens: Scientists claim the elusive substance does NOT interact with galaxies after all.

Experts say that our cosmos may ended as abruptly as it began in a collision with a bubble of negative energy, created by a Higgs boson - the so-called 'God particle.

Our universe could be DESTROYED abruptly in a collision with a bubble of negative energy, warn scientists – and the process may have already started.

Due to its gentle descent, Tiangong-1 is now experiencing significant drag as it brushes against the planet's denser outer atmosphere and it is dropping out of orbit by about 2.5 miles a day.

Out-of-control Chinese space station’s fiery crash to Earth is due in around 70 HOURS (but scientists still don’t know where it will land).

How did the universe begin? It seems we are about to find out.

Physicists to probe BEYOND the beginning of time, before CREATION itself.
