Astronomers from the University of Cambridge found that two unusual dwarf galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds, are surrounded by several small streams and diffuse debris clouds.
Scientists may have uncovered the hottest white dwarf in the galaxy. With a temperature that's a staggering 250,000 degrees Celsius, the dying star has already entered its cooling phase.
Researchers have spotted a young elliptical galaxy with NASA/ESA's Hubble Space Telescope. The elliptical galaxy was identified as NGC 3610, which 80 million light years away.
Scientists are learning a bit more about our universe with the help of some ancient galaxies. New discoveries are giving astronomers a way to test theories of galaxy formation and evolution.
Astronomers from Yale and Harvard have discovered a distant galaxy with a "heartbeat." The researchers even got a pulse of a heartbeat every 270 days.
Researchers have spotted one of the loneliest galaxies using the Hubble Space Telescope. The lonely galaxy was identified as MCG+01-02-015 and it is classified as void and as one of the loneliest galaxies that has been found.
NASA has spotted one of the most energetic pulsars ever to be seen outside our Milky Way galaxy.
Astronomers have spotted the most distant object yet in our solar system.
A team of researchers from the Australian National University have discovered some of the oldest stars near Milky Way center. The researchers made the discovery using the ANU SkyMapper telescope.
The Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered a bit more about the early stages of our galaxy's construction. They've found the fading cinders of some of our galaxy's earliest homesteaders.
NASA researchers discovered a new galaxy cluster located 8.5 billion light years away. This is one of the most massive galaxy structures found at such a great distance, according to the researchers.
