UGR scientists provide new data on the nature of dark matter
Recent research conducted by scientists from the University of Granada can contribute to determine the nature of dark matter, one of the most important mysteries in physics. (2015-03-04)

Far from home: Wayward cluster is both tiny and distant
Like the lost little puppy that wanders too far from home, astronomers have found an unusually small and distant group of stars that seems oddly out of place. (2015-03-04)

UCLA physicists offer a solution to the puzzle of the origin of matter in the universe
Most of the laws of nature treat particles and antiparticles equally, but stars and planets are made of particles, or matter, and not antiparticles, or antimatter. (2015-02-26)

VLA finds unexpected 'storm' at galaxy's core
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array (VLA) found surprisingly energetic activity in what they otherwise considered a "boring" galaxy, and their discovery provides important insight on how supermassive black holes can have a catastrophic effect on the galaxies in which they reside. (2015-02-11)

Dark matter at the heart of our galaxy
The ubiquitous presence of dark matter in the universe is today a central tenet in modern cosmology and astrophysics. (2015-02-10)

Astronomers breathe new life into venerable instrument
How do astronomers determine the shapes of objects that are too far away to photograph? One method is by using spectropolarimetry, an observational technique that measures the way light waves align after they scatter through clouds of gas and dust in space. (2015-02-09)

Lifting the veil on a dark galaxy
A cluster of young, pulsating stars discovered in the far side of the Milky Way may mark the location of a previously unseen dark-matter dominated dwarf galaxy hidden behind clouds of dust. (2015-02-09)

CWRU astronomers find new details in first known spiral galaxy
Case Western Reserve University astronomers peered deep into space to discover new features of a galaxy that's been sketched and photographed for 170 years. (2015-02-04)

VISTA stares right through the Milky Way
As one of its major surveys of the southern sky, the VISTA telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile is mapping the central regions of the Milky Way in infrared light to search for new and hidden objects. (2015-02-04)

CAT scan of nearby supernova remnant reveals frothy interior
Cassiopeia A, or Cas A for short, is one of the most well studied supernova remnants in our galaxy. But it still holds major surprises. (2015-01-30)
