A jettisoned black hole?
In his general theory of relativity, Albert Einstein predicted that there are such things as gravitational waves. In fact, the very existence of these waves is the linchpin of the entire theory. View News Article (2014-11-20)


Spooky alignment of quasars across billions of light-years
Quasars are galaxies with very active supermassive black holes at their centres. These black holes are surrounded by spinning discs of extremely hot material that is often spewed out in long jets along their axes of rotation. View News Article (2014-11-19)


The Answer is Blowing in the Intergalactic Wind
Astronomers from the University of Toronto and the University of Arizona have provided the first direct evidence that an intergalactic "wind" is stripping galaxies of star-forming gas as they fall into clusters of galaxies. The observations help explain why galaxies found in clusters are known to have relatively little gas and less star formation when compared to non-cluster or... View News Article (2014-11-14)


Research reveals the real cause of death for some starburst galaxies
Like hedonistic rock stars that live by the "better to burn out than to fade away" credo, certain galaxies flame out in a blaze of glory. Astronomers have struggled to grasp why these young "starburst" galaxies - ones that are very rapidly forming new stars from cold molecular hydrogen gas up to 100 times faster than our own Milky Way - would shut down their prodigious star...

Primordial galaxy bursts with starry births
Peering deep into time with one of the world's newest, most sophisticated telescopes, astronomers have found a galaxy - AzTEC-3 - that gives birth annually to 500 times the number of suns as the Milky Way galaxy, according to a new Cornell University-led study published Nov. 10 in the Astrophysical Journal. View News Article (2014-11-13)


ALMA Finds Best Evidence Yet for Galactic Merger in Distant Protocluster
Nestled among a triplet of young galaxies more than 12.5 billion light-years away is a cosmic powerhouse: a galaxy that is producing stars nearly 1,000 times faster than our own Milky Way. View News Article (2014-11-11)


Caltech rocket experiment finds surprising cosmic light
Using an experiment carried into space on a NASA suborbital rocket, astronomers at Caltech and their colleagues have detected a diffuse cosmic glow that appears to represent more light than that produced by known galaxies in the universe.  View News Article (2014-11-07)


Dark matter may be massive
The physics community has spent three decades searching for and finding no evidence that dark matter is made of tiny exotic particles.  View News Article (2014-11-05)


Hubble Sees 'Ghost Light' From Dead Galaxies
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has picked up the faint, ghostly glow of stars ejected from ancient galaxies that were gravitationally ripped apart several billion years ago. The mayhem happened 4 billion light-years away, inside an immense collection of nearly 500 galaxies nicknamed "Pandora's Cluster," also known as Abell 2744. View News Article (2014-10-31)


New window on the early universe
Using two world-class supercomputers, the researchers were able to demonstrate the effectiveness of their approach by simulating the formation of a massive galaxy at the dawn of cosmic time.  View News Article (2014-10-23)
