Are we alone in the universe? NASA’s Kepler mission is contributing to answering this question by searching for Earth-like planets that may be capable of hosting life.
The extra-solar planet GJ667Cc (or Gliese 667Cc) has been declared the most Earth-like object known outside of our solar system. It orbits a type of star which is studied at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics.
First first stars were born during the universe' youth according to new radiation maps. Much later that first anticipated.
The gigantic telescope set to extract a range of the sun's secrets picking up radio waves. Stay tuned!
Professor Mats Carlsson at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics has received the prestigious advanced grant from the European Research Council.
