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.
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.
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.
Clouds circling supermassive black holes spotted Feb 20, 12:12 pm

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.
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.
Astronomers get first glimpse of 'glue' of universe Jan 20, 10:47 am
Washington, Jan. 20 (ANI): Astronomers have found a distant quasar illuminating a vast nebula of diffuse gas, revealing for the first time part of the network of filaments believed to connect galaxies in a cosmic web.
Bar-shaped features in spiral galaxies accelerate aging process Jan 17, 1:04 pm
Washington, Jan. 17 (ANI): Astronomers from the University of Portsmouth have discovered that bar-shaped features in spiral galaxies accelerate the galaxy aging process.
Washington, Jan. 9 (ANI): A new study of light from quasars has provided astronomers with new insights into the swirling clouds of gas that form stars and galaxies, which proves that the clouds can shift and change more quickly than believed.
Washington, Jan. 9 (ANI): Astronomers have discovered more than 100 small, dwarf galaxies with characteristics indicating that they harbor massive black holes feeding on surrounding gas; this could help resolve the question as to how black holes originated and grew in the early universe.
Washington, Jan. 8 (ANI): NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has found the long-suspected underlying population of galaxies, which produced the bulk of new stars during the universe's early years.
Hundred thousand new cosmic x-ray sources identified Dec 17, 10:46 am
Washington, Dec. 17 (ANI): A team of researchers has published a major list of celestial X-ray sources, which features over 150,000 high-energy stars and galaxies.
'Fast radio bursts' may be coming from nearby stars Dec 13, 10:08 am
Washington, Dec. 13 (ANI): Researchers have claimed that "fast radio bursts", lasting for only a thousandth of a second, may be coming from within our own galaxy, and not from galaxies billions of light-years away as previously believed.
Ambitious assessment of galaxy formation simulations launched Dec 11, 10:30 am
Washington, Dec. 11 (ANI): A team of many astrophysicists have launched an ambitious new multiyear project - named AGORA (Assembling Galaxies of Resolved Anatomy) - to understand and resolve inconsistencies among different galaxy formation simulations.
Washington, Dec. 3 (ANI): Researchers have identified and classified more than half a million galaxies, after seven years of close observation of the universe from the Observatory of Calar Alto (CAHA, Almeria) and a technique that is able to break the stars' energy in their colors through astronomical filters.
What makes galaxies keep on producing stars? Nov 26, 4:02 pm
Washington, Nov 26 (ANI): Scientists have tried to study what kept the galaxy going all this while after making stars for the last 8 billion years.
Washington, Nov. 22 (ANI): Astronomers have discovered a far-flung trio of primitive galaxies that are nestled inside an enormous blob of primordial gas nearly 13 billion light-years from Earth.
New images show two galaxies masquerading as one Nov 15, 1:32 pm
Washington, Nov. 15 (ANI): Astronomers were left surprised after detailed studies showed that one of their subjects was not a single galaxy, but rather two, nearly perfectly superimposed on the sky to masquerade as one.
Unusual new type of black-hole quasar discovered Nov 8, 3:01 pm
Washington, Nov 08 (ANI): A research team has discovered a surprising new class of quasars- a super-bright disk of hot gas surrounding a black hole- in distant galaxies that even the most current theories had not predicted.
How supermassive black holes grow when galaxies collide Oct 24, 3:58 pm
Melbourne, Oct. 24 (ANI): Experts have claimed that the notion black holes become supermassive by merging with other black holes is much more complex than previously believed.
London, Oct 24 (ANI): ESA's Planck space telescope has been switched off after nearly 4.5 years soaking up the relic radiation from the Big Bang and studying the evolution of stars and galaxies throughout the history of the Universe.
Location of massive black holes discovered Oct 17, 5:05 pm
Washington, Oct 17 (ANI): A research team has discovered that the more massive black holes tend to be located in galactic environments with higher density, thus indicating that galaxies in a dense area often merge together, causing the growth of massive black holes.
