SAO Two star-forming galaxies in the process of colliding 11 billion light-years away, as seen by a variety of telescopes. At right is a close-up view, with the merging galaxies circled. The red data show dust-enshrouded regions of star formation,
New observations of a bridge of tenuous hydrogen gas stretching between two nearby galaxies may help solve a longstanding puzzle: Billions of years after star formation peaked in the universe, what continues to fuel the formation of new stars in
Adaptive Module, which creates an artificial laser guide star. S, they have demonstrated the significant difference that sharp stellar images can make in our understanding of the properties of stars...From the surface of the Earth, stars twinkle as
The Chandra X-ray Observatory has helped scientists to make a detailed study of an enormous cloud of hot gas enveloping two large, colliding galaxies. This unusually large reservoir of gas contains as much mass as 10 billion Suns, spans about 300,000
Spitzer Space Telescope Reveals The best current artist's conception of how our Milky Way galaxy would look if we could see it face-on. JPL Our 10 billion year-old Milky Way galaxy seemingly gets more complicated with each new observation. That's
Bursts of star birth have a significantly greater effect on their host galaxy than previously thought, according to a new study. When galaxies form new stars, they sometimes do so in frantic episodes of activity known as starbursts.
A galaxy turning gas into stars with almost 100 percent efficiency, a rare phase of galaxy evolution that is the most extreme yet observed, has been discovered. Hubble Space Telescope. "Galaxies burn gas like a car engine burns fuel.
Astronomers Discover a Dust Astronomers have discovered a dust-filled, massive galaxy that began churning out stars when the cosmos was a mere 880 million years old...The discovery, appearing in the April 18 issue of Nature, was made using the
One example is of a galaxy cluster called The Phoenix Cluster, which is 5.7 billion light-years away from Earth and is forging new stars at an extremely fast rate. It was reported by the National Geographic Daily News on August 15, 2012, that the
Earth, is producing the equivalent of nearly 3,000 Suns per year, a rate more than 2, 000 times that of our own Milky Way. The galaxy is massive, with a huge reservoir of gas from which to form new stars. This is the most detailed look into the
