For the first time ever, physicists have directly observed how a galaxy is formed.
Scientists have discovered what might be the largest feature in the known universe. They've discovered a ring of galaxies that's 5 billion light-years across.
It turns out that stars in our Milky Way galaxy have changed. A new map of the Milky Way reveals that nearly a third of the stars have dramatically changed their orbits.
How do cosmic winds impact galaxy evolution? Scientists may now have a clearer picture as to how it happens
Scientists have learned a bit more about the very first galaxies with the help of ALMA.
What happens when two galaxies smash together? That's a good question. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at what happens when a galactic giant crashes into a cosmic dwarf.
Scientists have uncovered a spectacular flare from a black hole. The pulse of high-energy light produced by the black hole may tell scientists a bit more about the galaxy where it resides.
A new image reveals the ghostly shells of a galaxy. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a striking image of a galaxy against a backdrop of other, distant galaxies.
A team of astronomers have watched a previously dormant black hole wake up in a dramatic display. They've seen material fall into the black hole for the first time in perhaps millions of years.
The universe overflows with repeating patterns-from the smallest cells to the largest galaxies. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at surfer's waves which occur not only on the ocean, but also in space.
Scientists have discovered evidence for a large population of hidden supermassive black holes in the universe. The findings could be huge for better understanding black holes in general.
