Earth-like exoplanet found to have atmosphere

A team of astronomers claimed to have detected an atmosphere around an Earth-like exoplanet, the first of its kind discovery that could have far-fetched implications in the ongoing search for alien life.

Astronomers attempting to capture first-ever photo of a black hole

Overwhelming gravity of black holes does not allow even light to escape, making it just impossible for astronomers to spot these massive holes. However, that could change as a team of scientists are working on a new project to capture the first-ever picture of a black hole at the heart of the Milky Way.

Astronomers know that a super-massive black hole dubbed Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) exists at the core of our galaxy, but they have thus far failed to capture its image.
