What Has Been Discovered Recently In Space?


NASA has made a lot of discoveries recently in space, from planets to black holes. In this article, we will explore some of the interesting things that have been discovered recently in space and how far-reaching their implications are on Earth.

When it comes to exploring the Universe, NASA is at the forefront. As a space agency, NASA has sent missions to study the entire solar system, including both Apollo and the New Horizons mission to Pluto.

What Has Been Discovered Recently In Space?

1. A Black Hole in the Milky Way

A black hole is a region of space that contains an object so massive that no light can escape it. Black holes are formed when a star collapses in on itself at the end of its life. The gravity of a black hole is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape it.

A new study has found that there are two black holes near the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The discovery could help scientists understand how supermassive black holes form and why they are more common in the center of galaxies than at their edges.

The two black holes were found using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory, which together have been used to make many ground-breaking discoveries about our universe.

2. Stars that could explode into Supernovas

Recently scientists have discovered that there are some stars that could explode into Supernovas. This means that their death is approaching.

The scientists have observed that these stars have a lot of mass, so the gravitational force on them is too much to be supported by the core of the star. This means that these stars can't support themselves anymore and will explode into a supernova.

They also found out that these supernovas would be brighter than any other supernova before it. They would be brighter than what they were in their life time and they would also leave behind more radiation than any other supernova before it.

3. The possible return of Pluto as a planet.

The possibility of Pluto being reclassified as a planet has been widely discussed in the media. If it is, there will be no more demotion of objects in our solar system to a minor planet. The reclassification is expected to be made soon by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), which governs astronomy and space science.

The IAU's Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (WGPSN) is currently working on a proposal for the new definition of planets and dwarf planets. This group was formed in 2010 with the objective of revising planetary nomenclature and will submit its report in December 2020 at the 42nd General Assembly of the IAU in Seoul, South Korea.

If Pluto is classified as a planet again, it would mean that it will not be counted among other minor planets in our solar system. The plan calls for adding five new objects to our list of planets: Eris, Haumea, Makemake, Sedna and Triton. There are also plans to reduce the number of dwarf planets by one or two if necessary.

The decision comes after a controversial change made by NASA scientists last year that removed Pluto from their list of "planets", even though they had previously said that they still considered

Once again, space is proving to be mysterious and interesting.
