Evidence found of white dwarf remnant after supernova

space

An international team of space scientists has found evidence of what they believe is a remnant of a type Iax supernova—a white dwarf moving in a way that suggests it was blown across part of the universe by the power of a thermonuclear explosion. In their paper published in the

Using smartphones and radio kits, researchers will track changes in how radio waves travel through the ionosphere As the moon’s shadow races across North America on August 21, hundreds of radio enthusiasts will turn on their receivers — rain or shine. These observers aren’t after the sun. They’re interested in a

No, This Year’s Solar Eclipse Won’t Trigger a Nibiru Apocalypse

It turns out these events could be even more impressive than we thought. A supernova is the largest explosion you might ever see if you ever get to see it! It’s the death of a star, and stars go out with a bang. They’re still mostly a mystery to science. It’s

Most Accurate Map of Recent Universe Unveiled by Scientists

Spectacular sunsets and sunrises are enough to dazzle most of us, but to astronomers, dusk and dawn are a waste of good observing time. They want a truly dark sky.Not Ned Molter, a UC Berkeley astronomy graduate student. He set out to show that some bright objects can be studied

Ancient Venus May Have Had an Ocean of Water

Venus

French scientists have run computer simulations about the formation of Venus that suggest that “Earth’s Twin” once had a thin ocean of water shortly after it formed.The researchers with the Université Paris-Saclay ran the complex simulation and published their findings in the Journal of Geophysical Research. While today Venus is a barren ball

Scientists Just Revealed a Hidden Secret About The Sun’s Inner Core
