Astronomers found proof of the existence of an intermediate-mass black hole hiding at the center of the globular star cluster.
A lonely planet and its distant star that is 1 trillion kilometers away has been detected by a team of astronomers. The planet is called 2MASS J2126 which belongs to an old group of stars and brown dwarf stars, known as the 'Tucana Horologium Association.'
Researchers have gathered the image of a luminous star cluster Trumpler 14 with the use of NASA/ESA's Hubble Space Telescope.
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.
Eta Carinae is best known for an enormous eruptions seen in the mid-19th century. Now, scientists have found five similar objects in other galaxies for the first time.
Globular star clusters can hold a million stars in a ball that's only about 100 light-years across on average. Now, though, scientists have found that these clusters may be good places to look for space-faring civilizations.
Sirius will be one of the brightest stars in the night sky on New Years.
Using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 on NASA/ESA's Hubble Space Telescope, researchers have captured a luminous image of the globular cluster Terzan 1, located 20,000 light-years away from the Earth.
Scientists have spotted a few ancient clusters hidden behind younger stars and are understanding the beginnings of our galaxy.
The new finding is allowing the researchers to examine the galaxies' building blocks. The researchers have manged to explore the structure, formation and the evolution of galaxies through the new finding.
A team of astronomers have found a key element that is used in the formation of stars - atomic gas. This study sheds new light on star formation and researchers can now look at this process from a different perspective.
