A professor at Penn State’s Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds has discovered a binary star system comprising a pair of brown dwarf stars, just 6.5 light years from the Sun. In astronomical terms, the new system is in Earth's backyard.
Two studies are researching a supermassive black hole that devoured a star that ventured too close to the monster. The star was one million times the mass of our sun and light from the ordeal took 3.9 billion years to reach Earth.
An out-of-this-world, joint study between researchers affiliated with NASA's Planetary Science Division and Penn State University suggests that global warming could trigger an alien attack against humanity in order to save the Milky Way Galaxy.
