Will an Asteroid Hit Earth in 2022?

kiss your family hug them NASA, other space agencies, astronomers and even hobbyists spend a lot of time on searching the sky for these so-called near Earth objects (NEOs). They try to deduce their orbit as accurately as possible. Astronomers then rank the objects by impact probability and put them onto a list. You can […]

We’ve mapped a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Take the virtual tour here.

Astronomers have mapped about a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way, in the most detailed survey of the southern sky ever carried out using radio waves. The Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey (or RACS) has placed the CSIRO’s Australian SKA Pathfinder radio telescope (ASKAP) firmly on the international astronomy map. While past surveys have […]
