The Australian National University (ANU) is inviting citizen scientists with an interest in astronomy to join a search for exploding stars called supernovae.
Around 25,000 Australians are diagnosed with epilepsy each year.
Asteroid 2015 BZ509 is the only asteroid in the solar system known to have a clockwise, retrograde orbit around the Sun while at the same time sharing a planet's orbital space.
The Australian National University (ANU) is launching a search for a new planet in our solar system, and you're invited to help make this historic discovery.
UWA's Zadko Telescope has captured the explosion that gave birth to a black hole 12 billion light years away, which took place before the Earth and Sun existed.
Japanese researchers have been investigating the source of energy driving the Earth's magnetic field, hidden deep within its core.
Astronomers have announced evidence for the existence of a 'middleweight' black hole — otherwise known as the missing link between relatively small, stellar-mass black holes and the supermassive black holes that lie at the centre of some galaxies.
Across the universe, galaxies are being killed, and scientists want to know whodunnit.
German scientists have been investigating the true age of 49 Lib, a relatively bright star in the southern sky, which was until recently believed to be 2.3 billion years old.
German researchers have successfully created a cloud of ultracold atoms in space — and begun testing a theory of Albert Einstein's in the process.
If you can't shake the feeling that 2016 went on for longer than a typical calendar year, you're not actually far from the truth.
Giant galaxies may grow from cold gas that condenses as stars, contradicting the theory that they are formed by smaller galaxies falling together in a hot, violent merger.
Australian and German scientists have used the world's largest steerable radio telescopes to create the most detailed map yet of the Milky Way.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences has completed construction on the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) — the world's largest radio telescope.
An international team of astronomers has discovered the secret behind a change in the behaviour of a supermassive black hole at the centre of a distant galaxy.
