Astronomers, with the help of space telescopes revealed that collapsing clouds gave birth to monster black holes.
Astronomers used data from NASA's Great Observatories, which enabled them to carry out a detailed study of a large young galaxy cluster and they even weighed the mass of the galaxy.
Runaway stars may actually leave "footprints" behind them in space.
With the use of NASA/ESA's Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, astronomers have solved the missing water mystery of ten Jupiter-like exoplanets.
Astronomers have discovered a dying giant radio galaxy which is 9 billion light years away. Researchers from the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA, TIFR) in Pune, India made the discovery using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT).
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.
Scientists may have spotted a galaxy that formed just after the universe did. They've peered back in time to just after the Big Bang to see a galaxy that's more than 13.2 billion years old.
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has helped spot one of the most distant planets known to date. Located about 13,000 light-years away, the remote gas planet reveals the true capabilities of Spitzer.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the evolution and formation of hundreds of nearby galaxies. Now, they're unveiling new scientific images of these galaxies that reveal their internal structure and interaction among one another.
