“For the first time ever, astronomers used NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to take a direct image of a planet outside our solar system.”
By harnessing the capabilities of the Gemini South telescope in Chile, astronomers have obtained the sharpest image ever of the star R136a1, the most massive known star in the universe. Their research challenges our understanding of the most massive stars and suggests that they may not be as massive as previously thought. Astronomers have yet Read More…
