Astronomers led by a Curtin University researcher have discovered a new population of exploding stars that “switch off” their radio transmissions before collapsing into a Black Hole.
Intelligent telescopes designed by Los Alamos National Laboratory got a front row seat recently for an unusual birth.
Astronomers used the new ALMA (Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array) telescope in Chile – the most powerful radio telescope in the world – to view the stellar womb which, at 500 times the mass of the Sun and many times more luminous, is the largest ever seen in our galaxy.
A new analysis of a fossil discovered in 1924 indicates that human brain evolution may be connected to walking upright.
What could be the youngest known star has been photographed in the earliest stages of being born.
