Australia's new partnership with the European Southern Observatory will give our astronomers access to much bigger telescopes.
The recipe book for galaxy formation may need to be rewritten after the discovery of a massive galaxy that stopped making new stars early in the Universe's history.
Astronomers are surprised by what they're finding out about galaxies that formed in the early days of our universe, now that sensitive telescopes allow direct observation, not the inference of old.
So where did all the dark matter come from?
After months of running in test-mode, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope is now gathering data at an incredible rate to give us a new look at how our universe works.
A new book explores some of the big questions of why the universe exists and why it seems fine-tuned for life.
Leibniz’s 'great question' remains a central question in philosophy and science today.
New research out this month has led to speculation that the acceleration of the expanding universe might not be real after all. So what's really going on?
Sonification is a technique for converting data into sound. It could transform the study of distant worlds.
A new telescope aims to figure out what became of the universe's original atoms once the first stars began to shine.
Hundreds of images of thousands of galaxies have given astronomers one of the most detailed galaxy studies ever compiled.
The observation of gravitational waves from a second black hole merger implies there are many more black holes in the universe than scientists had previously anticipated.
Astronomers think they may have found evidence within our galaxy of some of the missing matter thought to make up our universe.
If some of the laws of physics were only infinitesimally different, we would simply not exist. It almost looks like the universe itself was built for life. But how can that be?
Our universe's most exciting days are well behind us, with new research showing the universe is now slowly but surely dying.
Why the Breakthrough Listen project is a step in the right direction in our hunt for life beyond Earth.
An exotic plasma could help shed light on why the universe as we know it is made up of more matter than antimatter.
The Square Kilometre Array is the world's largest telescope – what will it do and how does it work?
Twenty-five years on and the Hubble Space Telescope is still taking some amazing images. But there have been a few glitches over the years, right from day one.
What happens to a galaxy when it runs out of the stuff needed to forge new stars?
