Washington, Sept. 14 (ANI): Astronomers have found the previously undiscovered 'red nuggets' - small galaxies densely packed with red stars - near Earth.
Hubble helps uncover 160,000 star clusters Sep 13, 10:12 am
Washington, Sept. 13 (ANI): NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has found the largest known population of globular star clusters, about 160,000, inside the core of the giant grouping of galaxies known as Abell 1689.
Why disk galaxies eventually look similar Sep 12, 9:27 am
Washington, Sept. 12 (ANI): An astronomer has said that all kinds of flat, disk galaxies grow out of their irregular, clumped appearance and their older stars take the same smooth look, while predictably fading from a bright center to a dim edge.
20-year dark matter mystery `unravelled` Sep 11, 7:55 am
Washington, Sept. 11 (ANI): Astronomers believe that they have found the answers to a 20-year debate over how dark matter is distributed in small galaxies.
Washington, Sept. 6 (ANI): Astronomers have used a worldwide network of radio telescopes to find evidence that a powerful jet of material that is propelled at almost the speed of light by a galaxy's central black hole is blowing massive amounts of gas out of the galaxy.
Modified law of gravity predicts average speed of stars in 10 satellite dwarf galaxies Aug 29, 11:26 am
Washington, August 29 (ANI): A modified law of gravity was correctly able to predict, before observations were made, the average speed of stars within a galaxy relative to each other in 10 dwarf satellite galaxies of Andromeda.
Mature-looking galaxies existed 11.5b years ago Aug 16, 9:57 am
Washington, August 16 (ANI): Astronomers have claimed that mature looking galaxies existed much earlier than previously known, when the universe was just about 2.5 billion years old.
Washington, Aug 9 (ANI): Astronomers have unraveled a 40-year mystery on the origin of the Magellanic Stream, which is a long ribbon of gas stretching nearly halfway around our Milky Way galaxy.
Monster galaxies' appetite slows down with age Aug 2, 11:54 am
Washington, Aug 2 (ANI): New research from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) has found that, contrary to previous theories, gargantuan galaxies appear to slow their growth over time, feeding less and less off neighboring galaxies.
Washington, July 30 (ANI): Astronomers have found a new way to measure the spin in supermassive black holes, which could lead to better understanding about how they drive the growth of galaxies.
Quasars over 1000 times brighter than Milky Way stars Jul 25, 4:14 pm
Washington, July 25 (ANI): Powered by massive black holes at the center of most known galaxies, quasars can emit enormous amounts of energy, up to a thousand times the total output of the hundreds of billions of stars in our entire Milky Way.
How starbursts stunt galaxy growth Jul 25, 2:26 pm
Washington, July 25 (ANI): A new study has tried to find out how there are far fewer galaxies at the most massive end of the galactic scale than expected, which scientists have long sought to explain.
New record set for cosmic X-ray sightings Jul 24, 4:22 pm
Washington, July 24 (ANI): Scientists have set a new record for cosmic X-ray sources ever sighted-creating an unprecedented cosmic X-ray catalogue that will provide a valuable resource allowing astronomers to explore the extreme universe.
How early galaxies were formed Jul 4, 12:18 pm
Washington, July 4 (ANI): Using new detailed studies carried out with the ESO Very Large Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope, researchers have studied an early galaxy in unprecedented detail and determined a number of important properties such as size, mass, content of elements and have determined how quickly the galaxy forms new stars.
