The Space Warps project, which launched today, is recruiting armchair astronomers to scour the universe for galaxies that are so massive they warp space time. These colossal collections of stars act as enormous magnifying glasses, bending light
For the first time, astronomers have found direct evidence that the Universe is filled with a giant web-like structure of dark matter, arrayed in vast filaments between the galaxies. Norbert Werner and Aurora Simionescu and led by Jorg Dietrich of
Ettore Carretti, an astrophysicist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Australia Carretti said: "This is the first clear imaging of a huge impact between two merging clusters of galaxies. The overall structure we
Astronomers have long known about the class of the largest black holes, which they call supermassive black holes. Typically, these black holes have masses ranging between a few million and a few billion times that of our Sun This new analysis of the
Hundreds of billions of solar systems like ours -- comprising planets, asteroids and comets -- may be residing in our Milky Way galaxy, which itself may be like a drop in the ocean of galaxies, feel scientists.
Hubble Space Telescope spotted an overabundance of dark matter in the heart of the merging galaxy cluster Abell 520. This observation surprised astronomers because dark matter and galaxies should be anchored together, even during a collision between
New work by a team of astronomers that has yielded exquisitely precise distances of a large sample of clusters may lead to breakthroughs in understanding the expansion history of our Universe and Dark Energy, one of the major puzzles in astronomy.
Hot' gas bridge connecting pair of galaxy clusters spotted Washington, November 21 (ANI) A bridge of hot gas connecting a pair of galaxy clusters across 10 million light-years of intergalactic space has been detected for the first time using ESA's
Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes and one of nature's own natural "zoom lenses" in space, astronomers have set a new record for finding the most distant galaxy seen in the universe. The farthest galaxy appears as a diminutive blob that is only a
25 Washington: Astronomers at the Institute for Astronomy (University of Hawaii at Manoa) and their collaborators have developed a technique that allows them to map collisions of giant galaxy clusters in three dimensions, by combining observations
