The universe is one of the most fascinating topics we come across. We are intrigued by the possibilities that space travel brings, including the colonization of other planets and the potential discovery of sentient life like our own across the universe. For generations, looking up at the cosmos has nurtured our imagination and even guided our lives and travel. Though our ancestors were often skilled astronomers and mathematicians, their skills and resources only permitted them to go so far in their discovery of the universe. For this list, we have scoured the latest in space news to bring you some of the most recent and amazing discoveries scientists have made about space.

From a cosmic collision which produced tons of gold to a star which is basically a massive diamond, the space discoveries we have made in the past decade have pushed our understanding to new heights. They also have often invalidated past theories, forcing astronomers to consider alternatives for how we came to exist in the grand universe. From the coldest place in the universe to a comet which produces its own alcohol, put on your space suit as we blast into these 25 Recent Space Discoveries That Blew Our Minds.

10,000 astronomers working in perfect coordination (to not duplicate the count) couldn't count as many planets as you say they have discovered if given 100 years to do it

3:13 "Saturn's massive new ring": Is not at all very "massive." Is composed of debris from the Saturnian moon of Phoebe. The density of matter in this new ring is so low that it would be considered a "hard" (i.e., extremely good) vacuum if replicated here on Earth.

Lunamaria says:

How in the fuck did astronomers confirm that there are 20 BILLION earth like exoplanets in the Milkyway when they have actually only discovered a number in the thousands of exoplanets, mostly jovian?……….. Also magnetic fields deflect charged particles, not thin atmospheres… I can't watch another second of this *drops mic and walks away*
