Kuiper Belt May Be Much Larger than Previously Estimated. Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs) are thought to be the dominant source of interplanetary dust particles in the outer Solar System due to both collisions between KBOs and their continual bombardment by interstellar dust particles.

Australian scientists spotted a quasar powered by the fastest growing black hole ever discovered. Its mass is about 17bn times that of our solar system’s sun, and it devours the equivalent of a sun a day.

Water found on supposedly dry asteroids for the first time - This detection is surprising, because our current understanding of solar system formation would suggest that S types are anhydrous because of their formation location in the inner solar system

Mimas, a moon of Saturn that resembles the Death Star because of a massive crater on its surface, has a hidden ocean buried miles beneath its crust. The unexpected discovery means it joins Saturn’s Titan and Enceladus and Jupiter’s Europa and Ganymede as moons known to harbour subterranean oceans.

As the core of the moon cools, it is shrinking, finds a new NASA-funded study, causing it to “shrivel”. That creates ripples called thrust faults, across the moon’s surface, that can be the site of hours-long moonquakes and landslides, which could imperil people and robots exploring the moon.

Black holes not only existed at the dawn of time, they birthed new stars and supercharged galaxy formation. The insights upend theories of how black holes shape the cosmos, challenging classical understanding that they formed after the first stars and galaxies emerged

The dust in the vicinity of the centers of galaxies significantly influences the measurements of their distances in the universe. This was pointed out by a team of physicists from Masaryk University, who analyzed ultraviolet and X-ray data from a set of 58 active galaxies.
