Washington, Mar 16(ANI): NASA's Swift satellite has uncovered the previously unknown remains of a shattered star while performing an extensive X-ray survey of our galaxy's central regions.
Distance to nearest neighboring galaxy calculated Mar 7, 10:14 am
London, March 7 (ANI): Astronomers have improved the measurement of the distance to our nearest neighboring galaxy and, in the process, refine an astronomical calculation that helps measure the expansion of the universe.
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.
Washington, February 14 (ANI): Ultra-cool dwarfs - defined as stars with a temperature below 2500 K - are the most ancient objects in our galaxy and, therefore, they can provide information about its primitive chemical composition.
Rare explosion may have created our galaxy's youngest black hole Feb 14, 10:06 am
Washington, February 14 (ANI): A highly distorted supernova remnant may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy, new data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have suggested.
Dung beetles use Milky Way for directions Jan 25, 12:22 pm

'Bone' of Milky Way identified Jan 9, 4:28 pm
Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): Astronomers have identified a new structure in the Milky Way - a long tendril of dust and gas that they are calling a "bone."

London, December 11 (ANI): Scientists from the Puerto Rico-based Planetary Habitability Laboratory that runs the Habitable Exoplanets Catalog, an ambitious project to catalogue every habitable planet, have discovered seven worlds inside the Milky Way that could possibly harbour life.
Hundreds of previously unseen starburst galaxies revealed Dec 5, 12:46 pm
Washington, December 5 (ANI): Astronomers have combined the observing powers of ESA's Herschel space observatory and the ground-based Keck telescopes and characterized hundreds of previously unseen starburst galaxies, revealing extraordinary high star-formation rates across the history of the universe.
Washington, December 4 (ANI): Stars that resemble our own Sun are scattered around the Milky Way - and a new study has suggested that any planets orbiting those stars may very well be hotter and more dynamic than Earth.
Washington, November 3 (ANI): Results of a new research has altered the chronology of our solar system's historical development.
