Australian researchers have discovered the fastest-growing black hole known in the universe which is swallowing up the surrounding cosmos.
The Sun will die in 10 billion years. And when it does, it’s going to blow. What’s left of us will become a billowing bubble of dead starstuff.
A massive "hole" on the surface of the sun has unleashed a strong solar wind that scientists say may amp up the northern lights in some areas of the U.S. and could disrupt satellite communications over the next few days.
A solar storm is forecast to hit Earth Tuesday after the sun unleashed a powerful solar flare — a burst of high-energy radiation.
Out of billions of stars in the Milky Way galaxy, there's one in particular, orbiting 25,000 light-years from the galactic core, that affects Earth day by day, moment by moment.
Scientists have discovered 15 new planets, including a “super-Earth” that may have liquid water on its surface.
Reports of a major solar storms that could wreak havoc on Earth this week are wide of the mark, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which has not noted any significant storm-related activity on the Sun.
Your name could soon zoom through the sun's superheated outer atmosphere, just like William Shatner's.
A solar storm is forecast to hit Earth early Thursday after the sun unleashed a powerful solar flare — a burst of high-energy radiation — over the weekend.
New research may have identified a mechanism that limits just how powerful explosions from the sun can become, shedding light on their ability to damage communication satellites and power grids.
By 2050, our sun is expected to be unusually cool.
By 2050, our Sun is expected to be unusually cool.
An active, sun-spotted region of the sun that unleashed powerful solar flares earlier this week fired two more significant solar flares this morning.
An immense black hole 100,000 times bigger than the sun has been discovered at the heart of the Milky Way.
Early this morning (Sept. 6), the sun released two powerful solar flares — the second was the most powerful in more than a decade.
Charlotte Roel Easterly came into the world in Pensacola, Florida, during the height of Monday’s solar eclipse.
Nashville, Tenn., is known for its music scene but on Monday it became a hot spot for those who wanted to see the first total solar eclipse in the country in nearly a century.
Millions gazed at the eclipse along the path of totality with it ending its coast-to-coast travel in Charleston, SC. Nearly 3,000 visitors from all over the country viewed the celestial event from the deck of USS Yorktown (Fighting Lady), World War II’s famous battleship.
The eagerly anticipated 'Great American Solar Eclipse' has finally arrived. Follow its historic progress on our live blog.
