One of the things predicted by the theory of relativity is the "universality of free fall" – basically, any two objects in a vacuum will fall at the same rate. Whether or not this applied to massive objects like planets and stars has long been debated, but now astronomers have used the Arecibo Observatory to show that the phenomenon does hold true, meaning Einstein was right yet again...

Black holes seem to fall into two main categories: relatively small and supermassive. That leaves a huge empty middle ground, and astronomers have long proposed that there must be intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) somewhere in between. Now, scientists from the University of New Hampshire have captured the best evidence so far of the existence of these mysterious middleweights, as one e
Over the last year or so, firmware updates from Sony introduced a much-publicized penchant for Sony Alphas to “eat” stars even in RAW files, apparently due to an internal noise reduction or anti-aliasing routine users could not turn off. Stars were smoothed away along with the noise in exposures longer than 3.2 seconds in some Sony cameras (and longer than 30 seconds in others). I feel that in th

When it comes to viewing far-flung stars, astronomers are usually limited to studying them within groups – or galaxies – or as supernovae. But thanks to a rare cosmic alignment, astronomers have been able to view the most distant individual normal star ever observed. Located some 9 billion light years from Earth, the star was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope thanks to gravitational lens

Currently, Alpha Centauri is the closest star to our Sun, at a distance of four light-years. But about 70,000 years ago, an interstellar interloper brushed past less than a light-year from us, making it the closest recorded pass of another star. A new study has found that the effects of this close encounter are still felt today, as the orbits of hundreds of comets and asteroids still bear the
