July 21, 2016 — Fifty years ago Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise began their journey into space -- the final frontier. Now, as the newest Star Trek film hits cinemas, the NASA/ESA Hubble space ... read more

July 14, 2016 — A team of hundreds of physicists and astronomers has announced results from the largest-ever, three-dimensional map of distant galaxies. The team constructed this map to make one of the most precise ... read more

July 12, 2016 — About 250 million light-years away, there's a neighborhood of our universe that astronomers had considered quiet and unremarkable. But now, scientists have uncovered an enormous, bizarre galaxy ... read more

July 12, 2016 — Astronomers have discovered that the color of supernovae during a specific phase could be an indicator for detecting the most distant and oldest supernovae in the Universe -- more than 13 billion ... read more

July 11, 2016 — If the origin of life is common on other worlds, the universe should be a cosmic zoo full of complex multicellular organisms. Scientists use the evolution of Earth life as a model to predict what ... read more

July 8, 2016 — Using a large sample of around 70,000 galaxies, a team of researchers led by University of California, Riverside astronomers may have an answer to an outstanding problem in the study of the evolution ... read more

July 7, 2016 — Stars end their lives, mainly, in two ways: as supernovae and planetary nebulae. In both cases they throw out into the interstellar medium the chemical elements synthesized in their interiors. ... read more

July 7, 2016 — Astronomers have discovered evidence for an unusual kind of black hole born extremely early in the universe. They showed that a recently discovered unusual source of intense radiation is likely ... read more

Accelerating Research Into Dark Energy

July 7, 2016 — A quick method for making accurate, virtual universes to help understand the effects of dark matter and dark energy has been developed by scientists. Making up 95 percent of our universe, these ... read more

July 6, 2016 — Data from a now-defunct satellite is providing new insights into the complex tug-of-war between galaxies, the hot plasma that surrounds them, and the giant black holes that lurk in their centers. The ... read more

July 5, 2016 — Astronomers have shed further light on the evolution of the early Universe with the discovery of a "team" of super bright ... read more

June 29, 2016 — Scientists may have answered why green galaxies are rare in our universe and why their color could reveal a troubled ... read more
