Astronomers have discovered the farthest-flung known stars in the Milky Way, objects whose presence suggests that our galaxy's 'halo' might be much larger than previously thought. July 10, 2014 The boundaries of our home galaxy may have to be
Researchers find Dwarf galaxies are responsible for forming 'huge' proportion of the stars in the universe Decade long study left researchers stunned by power of dwarf galaxies Gives new insight into how stars evolved 2 billion to 6 billion years
This weekend, I'm gazing with covetous awe at Schonstaub 's nebula area rugs. The three rug designs are photographs taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of nebulas in the small and large Magellanic Clouds...Hubble's press officer was clearly having
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.
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.
Chandra X-ray Observatory shows the center of our Galaxy, with a supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A* for short) in the center. According to researchers, the latest discovery confirms that black holes can flicker, moving from
Astronomers have long suspected that an outburst like this occurred, but this is the first time that they have actually been able to date it. The proof comes from a lacy filament of gas, mostly hydrogen, called the Magellanic Stream and this trails
Eons ago, two of our satellite galaxies became locked in a cosmic game of tug-of-war. Their fierce gravitational interactions ripped out a huge ribbon of hot, potentially star-forming gas that now surrounds much of our own galaxy's southern
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
