NASA's Hubble Finds Extremely Distant Galaxy through Cosmic Magnifying Glass
Peering through a giant cosmic magnifying glass, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a tiny, faint galaxy -- one of the farthest galaxies ever seen. The diminutive object is estimated to be more than 13 billion light-years away. View News Article (2014-10-17)


Milky Way Ransacks Nearby Dwarf Galaxies, Stripping All Traces of Star-Forming Gas
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia, along with data from other large radio telescopes, have discovered that our nearest galactic neighbors, the dwarf spheroidal galaxies, are devoid of star-forming gas, and that our Milky Way Galaxy is to blame.  View News Article (2014-10-16)


Leaky, Star-Forming Galaxies Lead Johns Hopkins Researchers to Better Understand the Universe
By focusing on large, star-forming galaxies in the universe, researchers at Johns Hopkins University were able to measure its radiation leaks in an effort to better understand how the universe evolved as the first stars were formed. View News Article (2014-10-10)


Dark matter half what we thought, say scientists

Simulations Reveal An Unusual Death for Ancient Stars
Certain primordial stars-those between 55,000 and 56,000 times the mass of our Sun, or solar masses-may have died unusually. In death, these objects-among the Universe's first-generation of stars-would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind. View News Article (2014-09-29)

Reinterpreting dark matter
Tom Broadhurst, an Ikerbasque researcher at the UPV/EHU's Department of Theoretical Physics, has participated alongside scientists of the National Taiwan University in a piece of research that explores cold dark matter in depth and proposes new answers about the formation of galaxies and the structure of the Universe. View News Article (2014-09-18)


Big surprises can come in small packages
