For the first time, astronomers have directly observed the magnetism in one of astronomy’s most studied objects: the remains of Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A), a dying star that appeared in our skies over thirty years ago.
A telescope in outback Western Australia has been used to listen to a mysterious cigar-shaped object that entered our Solar System late last year. The unusual object—known as ‘Oumuamua—came from another solar system, prompting speculation it could be an alien spacecraft.
Astronomers have discovered that all galaxies rotate once every billion years, no matter how big they are.

Perth software developer Ryan Bunney has been identified as a leader of the future with the award of a high-value scholarship for exceptional individuals.
