With the help of data from the Subaru Strategic Program with Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC), researchers are getting a closer look at DOGs (Dust Obscured Galaxies).
Scientists have taken a closer look at galaxies and have found that a large proportion of galaxies have undergone a major metamorphosis since they were initially formed after the Big Bang.
A spectacular new image reveals sibling stars in an open star cluster. The new picture, which was captured with ESO's Wide Field Image, shows an amazing display of stars located about 3,000 light-years away.
There may be a surprising twist on how our solar system formed.
Scientists have spotted a spectacular galaxy collision lurking behind the Milky Way. This is the closest such system ever found, and may tell researchers a bit more about the interactions near our galaxy.
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has spotted something startling. It's identified the smallest supermassive black hole ever detect in the center of a galaxy.
The universe is slowly dying as stars wink out over time. After studying more than 200,000 galaxies, researchers have confirmed that the energy produced in a section of the universe today is only about a half of what it was two billion years ago.
Is there life on other planets? Scientists have been hunting for extraterrestrial life for years and now, they've developed a new method that may make finding it a bit easier.
Astronomers may have uncovered a unique process for how the universe's largest elliptical galaxies continue making stars long after their peak years of star birth.
Milky Way-like galaxies may have existed in the early universe. A new computer simulation reveals that large disk galaxies, much like our own Milky Way, may have existed in the early days of the universe.
Astronomers have discovered a giant, swirling disk of gas that represents a galaxy being born. The forming galaxy is actively being fed cool primordial gas that traces back to the Big Bang.
