Starquakes recorded by NASA's now-defunct Kepler space telescope have helped answer a longstanding question about the age of the 'thick disc' of the Milky Way.
Researchers were excited by the discovery of a stellar black hole with a mass 70 times that of the Sun, located 15,000 light years from Earth.
It is now possible for materials researchers to make quick predictions about how certain elements will behave at different pressures.
A newly discovered ancient star, containing what is said to be a record-low amount of iron, carries evidence of a class of even older stars.
Astronomers have determined the precise location of a powerful one-off burst of cosmic radio waves, thanks to the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder radio telescope.
