Some dying stars suffer from 'irregular heartbeats', research led by astronomers at the University of Warwick has discovered. (2015-08-27)

Astronomers unravel the history of galaxies for the first time
A team of international scientists, led by astronomers from Cardiff University's School of Physics and Astronomy, has shown for the first time that galaxies can change their structure over the course of their lifetime. (2015-08-27)

Record high pressure squeezes secrets out of osmium
An international team of scientists led by the University of Bayreuth and with participation of DESY has created the highest static pressure ever achieved in a lab: Using a special high pressure device, the researchers investigated the behaviour of the metal osmium at pressures of up to 770 Gigapascals (GPa) - more than twice the pressure in the inner core of the Earth, and about 130 Gigapascals higher than the previous world record set by members of the same team.

New data from Antarctic detector firms up cosmic neutrino sighting
Researchers using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have sorted through the billions of subatomic particles that zip through its frozen cubic-kilometer-sized detector each year to gather powerful new evidence in support of 2013 observations confirming the existence of cosmic neutrinos. (2015-08-21)

Mystery of exploding stars yields to astrophysicists
A longstanding mystery about the tiny stars that let loose powerful explosions known as Type Ia supernovae might finally be solved. (2015-08-20)

Sibling stars
The loose speckling of stars in this new ESO image is the open star cluster IC 4651, located within the Milky Way, in the constellation of Ara (The Altar), about 3000 light-years away. (2015-08-19)

Dark Energy Survey finds more celestial neighbors
Scientists on the Dark Energy Survey, using one of the world's most powerful digital cameras, have discovered eight more faint celestial objects hovering near our Milky Way galaxy. (2015-08-18)

Astronomers discover 'young Jupiter' exoplanet
One of the best ways to learn how our solar system evolved is to look to younger star systems in the early stages of development. (2015-08-14)

Rogue supernovas likely flung into space by black hole slingshots
Rogue supernovas that explode all alone in deep space present an astronomical mystery. Where did they come from? How did they get there? The likely answer: a binary black hole slingshot, according to a new study by Ryan Foley, a professor of astronomy and physics at the University of Illinois. (2015-08-14)

Astronomers discover new planet orbiting two stars
A team of astronomers including a San Francisco State University researcher has discovered a new planet orbiting a pair of stars, the 10th "circumbinary" planet discovered by NASA's Kepler Mission and a milestone for the 6-year-old spacecraft. (2015-08-11)
