Apr. 11, 2016 — Deep radio imaging has revealed that supermassive black holes in a region of the distant universe are all spinning out radio jets in the same direction -- most likely a result of primordial mass ... read more

Apr. 6, 2016 — One of the largest supermassive black holes on record has been discovered in an unexpected place: a relatively sparse region of the local universe where massive galaxies -- the typical home of these ... read more

Apr. 6, 2016 — Astrophysicists have revealed details of how supermassive black holes formed 13 billion years ago, and it's not from normal (stellar size) black holes growing to supermassive ... read more

Apr. 5, 2016 — New results from NANOGrav -- the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves -- establish astrophysically significant limits in the search for low-frequency gravitational waves. This ... read more

Mar. 30, 2016 — Scientists have determined the likely trigger for the most recent supernova in the Milky Way. They applied a new technique that could have implications for understanding other Type Ia supernovas, a ... read more

Mar. 30, 2016 — Simulations have revealed for the first time exactly how these black holes formed 700 million years after the Big ... read more

Searching for Life Beyond Earth: First Scientific Roadmap for European Astrobiology

Mar. 27, 2016 — The first scientific Roadmap for European Astrobiology was published on 21 March 2016. The AstRoMap European Astrobiology Roadmap considers astrobiology in a wide context: it is understood as the ... read more

Mar. 24, 2016 — Calculations by scientists have found highly magnetized, rapidly spinning neutron stars called magnetars could explain the energy source behind two extremely unusual stellar ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Researchers have observed 17 bright distant galaxies with the MOSFIRE high-resolution near-infrared spectrometer at the W. M. Keck Observatory telescopes. Then, they combined the spectra with ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Research has found new persuasive evidence that could help solve a longstanding mystery in astrophysics: why did the pace of star formation in the universe slow down some 11 billion years ... read more

Mar. 22, 2016 — Astronomers report that they have observed the most luminous galaxies ever seen in the Universe, objects so bright that established descriptors such as 'ultra-' and ... read more

Mar. 21, 2016 — The lightest few elements in the periodic table formed minutes after the Big Bang. Heavier chemical elements are created by stars, either from nuclear fusion in their interiors or in catastrophic ... read more

Mar. 17, 2016 — For more than ten years the H.E.S.S. observatory in Namibia, run by an international collaboration of 42 institutions in 12 countries, has been mapping the center of our galaxy in very-high-energy ... read more

Mar. 14, 2016 — Big Bang neutrinos are believed to be everywhere in the universe but have never been seen. The expansion of the universe has stretched them and they are thought to be billions of times colder than ... read more

What Dark Matter Might Be

Mar. 14, 2016 — There are indications that we might never see the universe's mysterious dark matter. Now researchers turn this somehow depressing scenario into an advantage and propose a new model for what dark ... read more

Mar. 10, 2016 — Astronomers have detected the faintest millimeter-wave source ever observed. By accumulating millimeter-waves from faint objects throughout the Universe, the team finally determined that such objects ... read more

Mar. 10, 2016 — Researchers have discovered about 80 young galaxies in the early universe about 1.2 billion years after the Big Bang. They made detailed analyses of imaging data by the Hubble Space Telescope. Among ... read more

Mar. 9, 2016 — Astronomers are presenting a novel analysis of computer simulations, based on theoretical models, that study the interaction of a dwarf galaxy with a dark ... read more

Mar. 7, 2016 — The universe is constantly expanding. But how does our universe evolve? Physicists have now developed a new code of numerical simulations that offers a glimpse of the complex process of the formation ... read more

Mar. 3, 2016 — By pushing the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to its limits astronomers have shattered the cosmic distance record by measuring the distance to the most remote galaxy ever seen in the Universe. This ... read more
