When to Watch the Tau Herculid Meteor Shower

photo: snapphoto (shutterstock) Meteors aren’t rare: There are space particles falling toward Earth constantly, and if you look closely for long enough on any given evening, you’re likely to see one or more streaking through the darkness. However, meteor showers that light up the night sky for minutes or hours at a time are much … Read more

This Space Rock’s Weird Chemistry Suggests It Came From a Supernova

In 1996, a rock from space was found in southwestern Egypt’s Great Sand Sea. The rock was odd, even by extraterrestrial standards, and a team of researchers studying the rock’s chemistry now propose that it came from a supernova—the brilliant, explosive collapse of a star. The rock is named Hypatia, after a 4th-century Egyptian mathematician. … Read more

NASA Releases Ridiculously Sharp Webb Space Telescope Images

NASA held a press conference Monday morning to discuss the precise alignment of the Webb Space Telescope and the spacecraft’s upcoming scientific operations. The space agency also released images from the telescope that put Webb’s progress on dazzling display. “I’m delighted to report that the telescope alignment has been completed performance even better than we … Read more

Hear the Sound of a Black Hole ‘Echo’

Using the new tool they nicknamed the “Reverberation Machine,” researchers have detected eight echoing black hole binaries in the Milky Way. They then converted those X-ray echoes into sound waves, which you can listen to in the video below. The Reverberation Machine combed satellite data from NICER, a telescope aboard the International Space Station that … Read more

Strange Object Hidden in Dust May Be Precursor to a Supermassive Black Hole

A team of researchers poring over archival data from the Hubble Space Telescope found an ancient object they believe may explain how quasars—supermassive black holes surrounded by jet-spewing discs of matter—emerge from dusty “starburst” galaxies. The vast object is called GNz7q, and it existed when the universe was just 750 million years old, about 13 … Read more
