Astronomers identify purest, most massive brown dwarf
Astronomers have identified a record breaking brown dwarf (a star too small for nuclear fusion) with the 'purest' composition and the highest mass yet known. The object, known as SDSS J0104+1535, is a member of the so-called halo -- the outermost reaches -- of our galaxy, made up of the most ancient stars.

Milky Way-like galaxies in early universe embedded in 'super halos'
Astronomers have directly observed a pair of Milky Way-like galaxies seen when the universe was only eight percent of its current age. These progenitors of today's giant spiral galaxies are surrounded by 'super halos' of hydrogen gas that extend many tens-of-thousands of light-years beyond their dusty, star-filled disks.

Gravitational wave kicks monster black hole out of galactic core
Astronomers have uncovered a supermassive black hole that has been propelled out of the center of the distant galaxy 3C 186. The black hole was most likely ejected by the power of gravitational waves.

Astronomers find unexpected, dust-obscured star formation in distant galaxy
Pushing the limits of the largest single-aperture millimeter telescope in the world, and coupling it with gravitational lensing, astronomers report that they have detected a surprising rate of star formation, four times higher than previously detected, in a dust-obscured galaxy behind a Frontier Fields cluster.

President Trump Hails NASA's Space Exploration Spirit in Weekly Address
President Donald Trump used his weekly address Saturday (March 25) to praise NASA's legacy of exploration and discovery in a video that also marked Trump's signing of the 2017 NASA authorization bill earlier in the week.

Astronomers to Peer Into a Black Hole for 1st Time with Event Horizon Telescope
Since first mentioned in 1783, black holes have captured the imagination of scientists, writers, filmmakers and other artists. Perhaps part of the allure is that these enigmatic objects have never actually been "seen."

Chris Hadfield Hosts 'Miniverse' On Curiosity Stream - Trailer
The former Canadian Space Agency astronaut and internet sensation is bringing space “down to Earth” in a new web series on Curiosity Stream.

Take a Solar System 'Road Trip' with Astronaut Chris Hadfield in 'Miniverse'
The solar system is shrunk down to the size of the continental United States in a new online movie hosted by retired astronaut Chris Hadfield. Joined by a few traveling companions, Hadfield makes his way from coast to coast, and planet to planet.

Hubble gazes into a black hole of puzzling lightness
The beautiful spiral galaxy visible in the center of the image is known as RX J1140.1+0307, a galaxy in the Virgo constellation imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, and it presents an interesting puzzle. At first glance, this galaxy appears to be a normal spiral galaxy, much like the Milky Way, but first appearances can be deceptive!

French, US astronauts install batteries outside space station (Update)
French astronaut Thomas Pesquet floated into space on his first-ever spacewalk Friday, on a mission to help upgrade the power system outside the International Space Station with new, refrigerator-sized lithium-ion batteries.

Video: Huygens' descent to Titan
On December 25, 2004, the piggybacking Huygens probe was released from the 'mothership' Cassini spacecraft and it arrived at Titan on January 14, 2005. The probe began transmitting data to Cassini four minutes into its descent through Titan's murky atmosphere, snapping photos and taking data all the while. Then it touched down, the first time a probe had landed on an extraterrestrial world in the outer Solar System.

How old is our moon?
Most scientists agree that the Earth has pretty much always had its moon. Details of the moon's composition (in particular the "isotopic mixture" of heavier and lighter versions of various elements) are too similar to the Earth's for it to have been captured from somewhere remote. However, some compositional details differ enough to rule out the idea that the moon is simply a chunk of the Earth that broke loose.
