Using cameras mounted on satellites, NASA has created in-depth ultraviolet maps of our neighboring galaxies. Using images taken by the Swift satellite, astronomers at NASA and the University of Pennsylvania were able to create detailed light
A Portion of the Large Magellanic Cloud Taken by the Hubble Telescope On Wednesday, an international team of scientists said they have found the most convincing evidence yet that dark matter exists . These results are not conclusive more testing
Astronomers have succeeded in observing the death throes of a giant star in unprecedented detail. In February of 1987 astronomers observing the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby dwarf galaxy, noticed the sudden appearance of what looked like a new
But figuring out exactly how far away our cosmic neighbor is has proved fiendishly difficult. This isn't simply an accounting problem fixing a precise measurement of the distance between our galaxy and its satellites is a vital first step in figuring
6 March 2013 The distance to our nearest galaxy has been accurately calculated by scientists for the first time...Previous measures of this distance have had limited accuracy to around five to ten per cent but the latest is accurate to 2.2 per cent.
For anyone that thought space was dark and colourless, the latest images from the Hubble Space Telescope may come as an eye-opener. The show the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way nearly 200,000 light-years from Earth...Stars
It's a rollicking, roiling cauldron of star creation and (occasionally) destruction, and it's only going to get more impressive as eons pass. NGC 604 measures a whopping 1,500 light-years across at its greatest diameter, whereas most nebulae in the
March 8, the image of a grouping of young stars called R136, which is located in the 30 Doradus Nebula, a part of tempestuous Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). LMC is a satellite of the Milk Way galaxy and is the third closest galaxy to the Milky Way.
Our closest galactic neighbor is shrouded in dust This doesn't look much like a galaxy, but it is in fact the Large Magellanic Cloud, one of the biggest satellite galaxies of our Milky Way. This awesome infrared image reveals the real look of this
ESO's Very Large Telescope has spotted the fastest rotating star known to date, rotating at more than two million kilometers per hour, more than three hundred times faster than the Sun. Tarantula Nebula, in the Large Magellanic Cloud, which is about
