For the first time, remains of Milky Way's ancient heart were discovered. The European Space Observatory (ESO) and its VISTA telescope discovered remains of an ancient star type called RR Lyrae.
NASA is adding up finishing touches on the James Webb Spae Telescope before it becomes ready to look at the first stars in the universe.
Our Milky Way is actually on par with the Andromeda Galaxy.
The record breaking system was the most luminous Gamma-ray binary system to be detected.
A team of scientists found that the landscape of the universe does not have a preferred direction, but expands the same way in every direction.
Gaia was able to pin down 20 times the number of stars captured by ESA's Hipparcos satellite.
Scientists have glimpsed thousands of galaxies in a distant portion of the universe through a powerful telescope, providing new insights into the “Golden Age” of galaxy formation.
ESA/NASA Hubble Space Telescope captured a lenticular galaxy, a formation that is in between an elliptical and spherical galaxy habituated by old stars.
Astronomers have created a detailed computer simulation of the Milky Way galaxy’s formation, which solved the mystery involving the missing group of smaller galaxies that should have been present.
Astronomers of the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics have reportedly found the largest object in the universe. Their latest find is called the BOSS, the largest supercluster of galaxies in the universe.
Scientists have come up with a clearer picture of the Milky Way galaxy, and it shows how the galaxy was formed 13 billion years ago.
At the center of the Milky Way galaxy is a dormant, supermassive black hole. But a new study suggests that the galaxy's core had once been ablaze six million years ago.
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has discovered a galaxy cluster 11.1 billion light-years away from Earth.
A dark twin of the Milky Way galaxy was discovered, mostly composed of dark matter.
Researchers have made another amazing discovery. Thanks to a powerful telescope, a nearby galaxy has been discovered which is composed of pure dark matter. The said galaxy’s existence would help researchers learn more about the properties of the mysterious element, which makes up 27 percent of the universe.
