Gravitational wave detectors upgraded to hunt for ‘extreme cosmic events’

First we saw black hole mergers. Then we saw two neutron stars collide. Now LIGO’s gearing up to reveal the secrets of the universe’s birth.

SOFIA Finds Dust Survives Obliteration in Supernova 1987A

Cosmic dust, a building block of stars and planets, can form in the wake of a violent stellar explosion called a supernova, according to a new study using the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, SOFIA. These surprising findings provide clues to an astronomical mystery surrounding cosmic dust.

We Just Discovered The Milky Way Isn’t Actually a Flat Disc After All

Apparently our galaxy really likes to boogie. It has, on several occasions, enjoyed a Monster Mash; now it’s been caught doing the Twist. A new study has revealed that the Milky Way isn’t a nice, neat, flat disc – it’s seriously warped around the edg
