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’.

Within ancient rocks in Arizona's Petrified Forest National Park, scientists have identified signs of a regular variation in Earth's orbit that influences climate. Here, one of the authors near the research site.

Earth’s orbital changes have influenced climate, life forms for at least 215 million years.

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.

A monstrous black hole has been spotted feasting on what appears to be the universe's largest doughnut, around 47 million light years away. This image shows an artist's impression of the gigantic cloud of gas which resembles the sugary confection.

Supermassive black hole is spotted feasting on a 40-light-year-wide ‘space doughnut’.

Researchers conducted four studies which refined their knowledge of the star of the centre of the system.
