Incredible Image Has Us So Excited For What The James Webb Space Telescope Can Do

All four science instruments on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope have achieved “perfect alignment” in advance of the telescope’s official debut this summer, project officials said in a news teleconference on Monday (May 9). “I’m delighted to report that the telescope alignment has been completed with performance even better than we had anticipated,” Michael McElwain, … Read more

We May Have Caught a Supermassive Black Hole Flipping Its Entire Magnetic Field

Black holes are powerful cosmic engines. They provide the energy behind quasars and other active galactic nuclei (AGNs). This is due to the interaction of matter with its powerful gravitational and magnetic fields. Technically, a black hole doesn’t have a magnetic field on its own, but the dense plasma surrounding the black hole as an … Read more

This Hubble Anniversary Pic of Unusual Galaxies Is Out-of-This-World Gorgeous

We’ve written about some truly stunning deep space pictures here on ScienceAlert, but a new Hubble snap showcasing a special collection of five galaxies has to be one of the best yet – even by our high standards. The group of galaxies is called the Hickson Compact Group 40, and they’re unusually close together at … Read more

A Powerful ‘Space Laser’ Has Been Detected Beaming From Deep Space

Powerful, radio-wavelength laser light has been detected emanating from the greatest distance across deep space yet. It’s a type of massless cosmic object called a megamaser, and its light has traveled for a jaw-dropping 5 billion light-years to reach us here on Earth. The astronomers who discovered it using the MeerKAT radio telescope in South … Read more

A Stupid Amount of Feasting Black Holes Was Detected in This Cosmic Spiderweb

New images of the Spiderweb protocluster of galaxies reveal an unusually high number of active supermassive black holes. Data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory collected over 8 days show that, in the volume of surveyed space, 14 black holes at the hearts of the galaxies, including the Spiderweb Galaxy at the center of the protocluster, … Read more

An Ancient Part of The Milky Way Is Much Older Than We Ever Knew

The Milky Way is older than astronomers thought, or part of it is. A newly-published study shows that part of the disk is two billion years older than we thought. The region, called the thick disk, started forming only 0.8 billion years after the Big Bang. A pair of astronomers pieced together the Milky Way’s … Read more
