How spiral galaxies get their arms Apr 3, 10:04 am
Washington, April 3 (ANI): How spiral galaxies like our Milky Way get and maintain their characteristic arms has proved to be an enduring puzzle in astrophysics.
Washington, April 1 (ANI): While studying young galaxies at a distance of 11.6 billion light-years from Earth, a team of astronomers has noticed a strangely shaped galaxy that looks like a "magatama", an ancient, comma-shaped Japanese amulet made of stone.
Hubble observes hidden depths of spiral galaxy Messier 77 Mar 29, 10:00 am
Washington, March 29 (ANI): The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a vivid image of spiral galaxy Messier 77 -- a galaxy in the constellation of Cetus, some 45 million light-years away from us. Also known as NGC 1068, Messier 77 is one of the most famous and well-studied galaxies. It is a real star among galaxies, with more papers written about it than many other galaxies put together.
Washington, Mar 16 (ANI): Distant, dust-filled galaxies were bursting with newborn stars much earlier in cosmic history than previously thought, a new study suggests.
Most complex ground-based telescope 'ALMA' inaugurated in Chile Mar 14, 11:12 am
Washington, March 14 (ANI): Scientists across the UK are proudly celebrating the monumental achievement of the completion of ALMA - the most complex ground-based telescope in existence.
Washington, March 14 (ANI): New observations by a Caltech-led team have discovered dozens of starburst galaxies that were churning out stars when the universe was just a billion years old.
Black hole simulations explore limits of spacetime Feb 23, 12:00 pm
Washington, Feb 23 (ANI): Black holes are voracious absences at the center of galaxies that shape the growth and death of the stars around them through their powerful gravitational pull and explosive ejections of energy.
Milky Way grew by 'cannibalizing' other smaller galaxies Feb 22, 9:48 am
Washington, February 22 (ANI): NASA's Hubble Space Telescope peered deep into the vast stellar halo that envelops our Milky Way galaxy and uncovered tantalizing evidence for the possible existence of a shell of stars that are a relic of cannibalism by our Milky Way.
'Cosmic web stripping' could reveal missing dwarf galaxies Feb 3, 12:48 pm
Washington, February 3(ANI): Astronomers have identified "cosmic web stripping" as a new way of explaining the famous missing dwarf problem: the lack of observed dwarf galaxies compared with that predicted by the theory of cold dark matter and dark energy.
Velocity of spinning gas can reveal mass of black holes Feb 1, 11:51 am
Washington, Feb 1 (ANI): Scientists have developed a new technique of measuring the mass of supermassive black holes, which could revolutionise our understanding of how they form and help to shape galaxies.
Computer models that help explain how galaxies formed created Jan 25, 12:22 pm
Washington, January 25 (ANI): An astronomer, who depends on other astronomers who make observations of stars and galaxies through telescopes on high mountain tops, makes use of large computers for understanding how galaxies formed billions of years ago and how they continue to evolve in our contemporary universe.
Massive supply of gas found around modern galaxies Jan 12, 12:29 pm
Washington, January 12 (ANI): In a new study, researchers have provided direct empirical evidence for the pristine gas that should be falling onto galaxies using new observations from the Hubble Space Telescope.
