For decades, satellites have been instrumental in monitoring our changing climate and improving our understanding of the processes that drive it. But to achieve our climate goals and make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, we need ideas that

New observations are challenging a hypothesis about what produces these energetic bursts of radio waves. An artist’s depiction of the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope detecting a fast radio burst coming from a distant barred spiral galaxy. (Image credit: Jingchuan Yu)
SVE NEWS & SPACE.COM Sharing Series — Astronomers discover traces of ‘super-supernovas’ that destroyed earliest stars
The team examined chemical traces of Population III stars using a 13.1-billion-year-old quasar. Astronomers may have found the chemical traces of the one of earliest stars — born when the universe was just 100 million years old — that exploded
The Sun never stops shining in space, and sunlight is much more intense there than on Earth’s surface. So what if we could gather that energy up in space then beam it down to Earth? Recent studies funded by the Preparation element of
