An international team of researchers find evidence for much theorised ‘hot cocoon’
Bath astrophysicists are part of an international consortium working on the largest and most sensitive telescope in the world
A billion light years from Earth a supermassive black hole powers a galactic "fountain", drawing in cold molecular gas and spraying it out in an ongoing cycle.
A year after the discovery of gravitational waves, scientists have discovered a cosmic relative to that historic event.
Astronomers captured a cataclysmic stellar explosion, a gamma-ray burst, and studied its “afterglow”, confirming University of Bath scientists' predictions.
