Astronomers capture a black hole shredding star into spaghetti strands

Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory observed a black hole sucking in a faraway star, shredding it into thin strands of stellar material. This process, known as “spaghettification,” happens because…

Neutron star collision continues to emit X-rays, puzzling astronomers

When two neutron stars smashed into each other, about 130 million light-years from Earth, the universe lit up. The collision, between some of the densest objects in the cosmos, produced…

Astronomers just spotted a planet floating freely in space without a star

Scientists have used gravitational lensing to detect a so-called ‘rogue planet’ that doesn’t orbit a star and floats freely in space. The planet is relatively small, but researchers can’t tell…
