   17 Nov 19:00:06  |  Universe Today

What’s the most exciting thing about the James Webb Space Telescope? The stunning images? The completion of its torturous path from concept to launch? Or is it because it provides such compelling visual evidence of objects and processes long theorized about but difficult to observe? Stars aren’t born instantaneously. It takes a long time for …

A White Dwarf is Surrounded by Torn-up Pieces of its Inner Planets and its Kuiper Belt

   15 Nov 19:00:23  |  Universe Today

What will happen to our Sun? In several billion years, it’ll cease fusion, shrivel into a white dwarf, and emanate only remnant heat. There it’ll sit, dormant and comatose. But the Sun anchors the entire Solar System. What will happen to Earth? To the rest of the planets? To the rest of the objects in …

Gamma-ray Bursts Don?t Always Signal the Birth of a Black Hole, Sometimes It?s Just a New Neutron Star

   14 Nov 19:00:24  |  Universe Today

Way out in the universe, a long time ago, a proto-magnetar was born. The birth was heralded by a gamma-ray burst (GRB), followed by a blast of strange emissions. Astronomers once assumed that GRBs like this came from black hole births. However, observations of the new object by astronomers in England show there’s more than …

New Observations Confirm That a Magnetar has a Solid Surface and No Atmosphere

   14 Nov 19:00:24  |  Universe Today

Can a star have a solid surface? It might sound counterintuitive. But human intuition is a response to our evolution on Earth, where up is up, down is down, and there are three states of matter. Intuition fails when it confronts the cosmos. Magnetars are dead stars with intense magnetic fields, the most intense we …
