Welcome the arrival of newborn stars in our galaxy. According to a thrilling research, gas from another galaxy is hitting our own, triggering the birth of bright new stars and adding fresh lustre to the Milky Way.
Here you can see what happened when a star went supernova, and became the object known as SN 1987A. This artist's interpretation is based on data gathered from the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope. According to the ESO: This
The European Space Agency’s Gaia star surveyor has taken its first "test" image, exhibiting its impressive technology, building up for when it goes online in a couple of months from now. The Gaia spacecraft, dubbed
It's a massive plume of dust that formed shortly after the star ripped itself to shreds...The image above is an artistic impression of Supernova 1987A the closest observed supernova explosion since Johannes Kepler's observation of a supernova inside
One of the closest observations of stellar birth and death have been captured for the first time with a telescope, showing stellar activity in one of our nearest galactic neighbours. Researchers, using the European Southern
Large Magellanic Cloud, which is one of our closest galactic neighbours located only about 160 000 light-years from us, is actively forming new stars in regions that are so bright that some can even be seen from Earth with the naked eye.
But despite its close proximity about 160,000 light-years astronomers are still finding new features to explore, including this stunning supernova remnant that appears to be sitting right beside a stellar nursery...At the left is the remnant of a
Astronomers have unraveled a 40-year mystery on the origin of the Magellanic Stream, which is a long ribbon of gas stretching nearly halfway around our Milky Way galaxy. The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, two dwarf galaxies orbiting the Milky Way,
These two gas clouds may reside side-by-side within the Large Magellanic Cloud, but as their distinctive coloring suggests, they're an interstellar odd couple. The image of these two two gas clouds, called NGC 2014 and NGC 2020, was captured by the
59 Washington, July 5 (ANI): Low temperatures detected in the remnant of a supernova detected in 1987 may explain the mystery of why space is so abundant with dust grains and molecules. An explosion of a massive star was detected in 1987 in our
