The stars have spoken. As scientists discover oddly shaped stellar movement patterns in the Milky Way disk, they uncover a turbulent past that included a near collision with another familiar galaxy.
The monster galaxy COSMOS-AzTEC-1 is spitting out stars at an abnormally frenzied pace. Scientists take a closer look using ALMA in Chile, finding that the gas clouds within are startlingly unstable.
Once upon a time, the Milky Way died. It may have been several billions of years ago, but the stars in the sky paint a picture of the galaxy’s tumultuous history that has huge implications in galaxy evolution.
The Hubble Space Telescope captured images of a dead disk galaxy, which challenges previously held theories about the evolution of galaxies.
NASA revealed a stunning image of a Crab Nebula, a remnant of a supernova explosion. The image was from combined data of many different instruments.
Innovative spacecraft greatly helps in understanding the universe. Just like how NASA's New Horizon's spacecraft devised a tool to be used in measuring the bright visible lights of other galaxies.
A supermassive black hole located in a small galaxy 1.8 billion light years from Earth continues to feed on the remains of a star that was ripped apart more than a decade ago.
A famous astronomer made the discovery of the spiral galaxy in the Hunting Dog constellation two centuries ago. But it was only today that the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope chased down the galaxy to reveal more information about it.
tA festive glowing red nebula was spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope. The nebulas glow could be attributed to heated hydrogen according to experts.
Scientists just released in public the largest digital survey of the universe, which they put together for four years. The survey was conducted by the scientists at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy, under the Pan-STARRS (Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System) project.
The new gravity theory, which was first proposed in 2010 by physicist Erik Verlinde from University of Amsterdam suggests that we do not need the dark matter to explain the anomalies in the universe.
Scientists have discovered that the mysteriously flickering galaxy is not being fed enough material to make it shine brightly.
Scientists have discovered a new cluster of stars that could provide more insights on how the Milky Way galaxy had evolved.
Astronomers have discovered a tsunami of stars and gas that crashed with the disk of a spiral galaxy known as IC 2163. The result is an eyelid-shaped star formation.
