Mar. 30, 2017 — A mysterious flash of X-rays has been discovered by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory in the deepest X-ray image ever obtained. This source likely comes from some sort of destructive event, but ... read more

Mar. 30, 2017 — Enigmatic dark energy, thought to make up 68% of the universe, may not exist at all, according to a Hungarian-American team. The researchers believe that standard models of the universe fail to take ... read more

Mar. 27, 2017 — Astronomers have used a radio telescope in outback Western Australia to see the halo of a nearby starburst galaxy in unprecedented ... read more

Mar. 27, 2017 — Observations using ESO's Very Large Telescope have revealed stars forming within powerful outflows of material blasted out from supermassive black holes at the cores of galaxies. These are the ... read more

Mar. 24, 2017 — Astronomers have identified a record breaking brown dwarf (a star too small for nuclear fusion) with the 'purest' composition and the highest mass yet known. The object, known as SDSS ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Astronomers have directly observed a pair of Milky Way-like galaxies seen when the universe was only eight percent of its current age. These progenitors of today's giant spiral galaxies are ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Astronomers have uncovered a supermassive black hole that has been propelled out of the center of the distant galaxy 3C 186. The black hole was most likely ejected by the power of gravitational ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Pushing the limits of the largest single-aperture millimeter telescope in the world, and coupling it with gravitational lensing, astronomers report that they have detected a surprising rate of star ... read more

Mar. 22, 2017 — Astronomers have developed a way to detect the ultraviolet background of the universe, which could help explain why there are so few small galaxies in the ... read more

Mar. 21, 2017 — A new computer simulation helps explain the existence of puzzling supermassive black holes observed in the early universe. The simulation is based on a computer code used to understand the coupling ... read more

Mar. 20, 2017 — Astronomers measured the light produced when a sun-like star wandered too close to a 3-million-solar-mass black hole similar to the one at the center of our own ... read more

Mar. 20, 2017 — Hubble caught a cross-section of NGC 1448, a spiral galaxy located about 50 million light-years from ... read more

The Rotation Axes of Stars Tell Us About How They Were Born

Mar. 16, 2017 — Using asteroseismology, an international research team has discovered a surprising alignment of the rotation axes of stars in open clusters, shedding light on the conditions in which stars are formed ... read more

Mar. 15, 2017 — New observations indicate that massive, star-forming galaxies during the peak epoch of galaxy formation, 10 billion years ago, were dominated by baryonic or 'normal' matter. This is in ... read more

Mar. 15, 2017 — Scientists using the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASASSN) have identified a black hole, choking on stardust. Data suggest black holes swallow stellar debris in ... read more

Mar. 13, 2017 — Researchers have shown how supermassive black holes may have formed in the early universe. They suggest that radiation from a neighboring galaxy could have shut down star-formation in a black-hole ... read more

Mar. 13, 2017 — Astronomers have found evidence for a star that whips around a black hole about twice an hour. This may be the tightest orbital dance ever witnessed for a black hole and a companion ... read more

Mar. 9, 2017 — NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has found that the black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy ate its last big meal about 6 million years ago, when it consumed a large clump of infalling ... read more

Mar. 8, 2017 — A team of astronomers has doubled the number of known young, compact radio galaxies -- galaxies powered by newly energized black holes. The improved tally will help astronomers understand the ... read more

Mar. 8, 2017 — Astronomers have used ALMA to detect a huge mass of glowing stardust in a galaxy seen when the Universe was only four percent of its present age. This galaxy was observed shortly after its formation ... read more
