Supermassive black holes can cloak themselves in a cocoon of dust, making them invisible even when they should be bright quasars

   03 Aug 00:00:07  |  Universe Today

Quasars are the most powerful sources of light in the universe, but sometimes they’re hard to find. A team of astronomers used the Chandra X-ray Space Telescope to find some diamonds in the rough. When gas finds itself in the center of a galaxy, it must come toe-to-toe with a truly terrible monster: a supermassive …

Juno Captures Pictures of Ganymede for the First Time

   02 Aug 00:00:42  |  Universe Today

On July 5, 2016, NASA’s Juno spacecraft arrived around Jupiter, becoming the second mission in history to study the gas giant from orbit – the last being the Galileo spacecraft, which orbited Jupiter from 1995 to 2003. Since then, the spacecraft has gathered data on Jupiter’s atmosphere, composition, gravity field, and magnetic field in the …
