June 28, 2016 — A new Hubble Space Telescope image shows a firestorm of star birth lighting up one end of the diminutive galaxy Kiso 5639. The dwarf galaxy is shaped like a flattened pancake, but because it is ... read more

June 27, 2016 — Around half of the star formation in the local Universe arises from minor mergers between galaxies, according to data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The patch of sky called Stripe 82 is observed ... read more

June 27, 2016 — Astronomers have released spectacular new infrared images of the distant Universe, providing the deepest view ever obtained over a large area of ... read more

June 27, 2016 — Gravitational waves captured by space-based detectors could help identify the origins of supermassive black holes, according to new computer simulations of the ... read more

June 24, 2016 — Cosmologists have begun modelling the universe for the first time using Einstein's full general theory of ... read more

June 23, 2016 — Hydrogen is the most-abundant element in the universe, but there is still so much we have to learn about it. One of the biggest unknowns is its transformation under the extreme pressures and ... read more

June 22, 2016 — Our universe came to life nearly 14 billion years ago in the Big Bang -- a tremendously energetic fireball from which the cosmos has been expanding ever since. Today, space is filled with hundreds of ... read more

June 22, 2016 — Astronomers have presented one of the most complete models of matter in the universe and predict hundreds of massive black hole mergers each year observable with the second generation of ... read more

June 16, 2016 — A team of astronomers has used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to detect glowing oxygen in a distant galaxy seen just 700 million years after the Big Bang. This is the most ... read more

'Mosh Pits' in Star Clusters a Likely Source of LIGO's First Black Holes

June 15, 2016 — Astrophysicists have shown their theoretical predictions last year were correct: The merger of two massive black holes detected Sept. 14, 2015, could easily have formed through dynamic interactions ... read more

June 15, 2016 — When an astronomical observatory detected two black holes colliding in deep space, scientists celebrated confirmation of Einstein's prediction of gravitational waves. A team of astrophysicists ... read more

June 15, 2016 — The supermassive black holes found at the centre of every galaxy, including our own Milky Way, may, on average, be smaller than we thought, according to new work. New research suggests that the ... read more

June 8, 2016 — For the first time, astronomers have detected billowy clouds of cold, clumpy gas streaming toward a black hole, at the center of a massive galaxy cluster. The clouds are traveling at speeds of up to ... read more

June 7, 2016 — Our Earth consists of silicate rocks and an iron core with a thin veneer of water and life. But the first potentially habitable worlds to form might have been very different. New research suggests ... read more

June 7, 2016 — Astronomers have demonstrated that the origin of extraordinary supernovae can be explained by the 'accretion scenario.' The researchers discovered an anomalously strong infrared emission ... read more

June 6, 2016 — Galaxies 'waste' large amounts of heavy elements generated by star formation by ejecting them up to a million light years away into their surrounding halos and deep space, according to a ... read more

June 2, 2016 — Researchers are using Mira to perform large-scale 3-D simulations of the final moments of a supernova's life cycle. While the 3-D simulation approach is still in its infancy, early results ... read more

June 2, 2016 — Hubble Space Telescope astronomers have discovered that the universe is expanding 5-9% percent faster than expected. They made the discovery by refining the universe's current expansion rate to ... read more

June 1, 2016 — An international team of scientists has pushed the limits of radio astronomy to detect a faint signal emitted by hydrogen gas in a galaxy more than five billion light years away -- almost double the ... read more

A Look Beyond the Horizon of Events

May 26, 2016 — Black holes are still very mysterious celestial bodies which, according to the majority of physicists, do not, however, escape the laws of thermodynamics. As a result, these physical systems possess ... read more
