Why some spiral galaxies are fat and bulging while others are flat discs  Feb 28, 9:45 am
Washington, Feb. 28 (ANI): Astronomers have found the reason behind some spiral galaxies being fat and bulging while others being just are flat discs, claiming that it's all about how fast they spin.
Bullying black holes prevent star formation in nearby elliptical galaxies  Feb 26, 10:49 am
Washington, Feb. 26 (ANI): A new research has found that massive elliptical galaxies in the nearby Universe contain plenty of cold gas, but still they fail to produce new stars as jets from the central supermassive black hole heat or stir up the gas.
Remnant of merger between two dwarf galaxies spotted in Andromeda Galaxy  Feb 24, 10:43 am
Washington, Feb 24 (ANI): Researchers at Niels Bohr Institute have detected a stream of stars in one of the Andromeda Galaxy's outer satellite galaxies, a dwarf galaxy called Andromeda II.

Washington, Feb 20 (ANI): Astronomers have reported seeing huge clouds of gas orbiting supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies.
Mystery of ultra-compact, burned-out galaxies solved  Jan 30, 10:28 am
Washington, Jan. 30 (ANI): Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Europe's Herschel Space Observatory have pieced together the evolutionary sequence of compact elliptical galaxies, which erupted and burned out when the universe was only 3 billion years old.
Massive galaxies were formed by collisions billions of years after Big Bang  Jan 30, 10:04 am
Washington, Jan 30 (ANI): A new research from the Niels Bohr Institute has shown that massive galaxies were formed by explosive star formation that was set in motion by the collision of galaxies a few billion years after the Big Bang.
Active supermassive black holes discovered in merging galaxies  Jan 29, 9:58 am
Washington, Jan. 29 (ANI): A team of astronomers have found at least one supermassive black holes (SMBH) almost always becomes active and luminous by accreting a large amount of material in luminous, gas-rich, merging galaxies.
