The newly discovered planet, HD 65086 b, is the lowest mass planet to be directly imaged.
Seven gas clouds have been found in the region between two galaxies. Are they part of a intergalactic filament or remnants from a past galaxy interaction?
Type Ia Supernovae are extensively used in astronomy research, but the progenitors of these massive explosions are still not well understood. This paper discusses new evidence that there are two distinct populations of type Ia supernovae, and that they originate from different stellar populations.
The asteroid Vesta has been scared by two giant impacts, dredging up material from deep below its surface. New simulations of the impacts allow us to trace where the material should end up and creates a conflict between theory and observation.
A new asteroid belt discovered around Vega makes this system look more similar to the Solar System than we had previous thought. The gap between the two belts around Vega may indicate the presence of multiple planets.
