A cross-section of the universe
An image of a galaxy cluster taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope gives a remarkable cross-section of the Universe, showing objects at different distances and stages in cosmic history.  View News Article (2014-04-18)


Georgia Tech researchers use XSEDE supercomputers to understand and predict how black holes swallow stars
Somewhere in the cosmos an ordinary galaxy spins, seemingly at slumber. Then all of a sudden, WHAM! A flash of light explodes from the galaxy's center. A star orbiting too close to the event horizon of the galaxy's central supermassive black hole is torn apart by the force of gravity, heating up its gas and sending out a beacon to the far reaches of the universe. View News Article (2014-04-15)


Fermi Data Tantalize With New Clues To Dark Matter
A new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark matter, an unknown substance making up most of the material universe. View News Article (2014-04-04)


Some galaxies in the early universe grew up quickly
Some galaxies grew up in a hurry. Most of the galaxies that have been observed from the early days of the universe were young and actively forming stars. View News Article (2014-03-12)


Spiral galaxy spills blood and guts
This new Hubble image shows ESO 137-001, a galaxy located in the southern constellation of Triangulum Australe (The Southern Triangle) - a delicate and beautiful spiral galaxy, but with a secret. View News Article (2014-03-05)


NASA's Hubble Finds Life is Too Fast, Too Furious for This Runaway Galaxy
The spiral galaxy ESO 137-001 looks like a dandelion caught in a breeze in this new Hubble Space Telescope image. View News Article (2014-03-05)


Stream of stars in Andromeda satellite galaxy shows cosmic collision
The Andromeda Galaxy is surrounded by a swarm of small satellite galaxies. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have detected a stream of stars in one of the Andromeda Galaxy's outer satellite galaxies, a dwarf galaxy called Andromeda II.  View News Article (2014-02-24)


RXTE Reveals the Cloudy Cores of Active Galaxies
Picture a single cloud large enough to span the solar system from the sun to beyond Pluto's orbit. Now imagine many such clouds orbiting in a vast ring at the heart of a distant galaxy, occasionally dimming the X-ray light produced by the galaxy's monster black hole. View News Article (2014-02-20)


When a black hole shreds a star, a bright flare tells the story
Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz uses computer simulations to explore the universe's most violent events, so when the first detailed observations of a star being ripped apart by a black hole were reported in 2012 (Gezari et al., Nature), he was eager to compare the data with his simulations. View News Article (2014-02-19)


Einstein's conversion from a static to an expanding universe
Until 1931, physicist Albert Einstein believed that the universe was static. An urban legend attributes this change of perspective to when American astronomer Edwin Hubble showed Einstein his observations of redshift in the light emitted by far away nebulae - today known as galaxies. View News Article (2014-02-18)
