OU astrophysicist and collaborators find supermassive black holes in quasar nearest Earth
A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.  View News Article (2015-08-28)


Discovering dust-obscured active galaxies as they grow
A group of researchers from Ehime University, Princeton University, and the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) among others has performed an extensive search for Dust Obscured Galaxies (DOGs) using data obtained from the Subaru Strategic Program with Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC). View News Article (2015-08-27)


Astronomers unravel the history of galaxies for the first time
A team of international scientists, led by astronomers from Cardiff University's School of Physics and Astronomy, has shown for the first time that galaxies can change their structure over the course of their lifetime. View News Article (2015-08-27)


UCLA physicist tests theories of dark energy by mimicking the vacuum of space
Besides the atoms that make up our bodies and all of the objects we encounter in everyday life, the universe also contains mysterious dark matter and dark energy. The latter, which causes galaxies to accelerate away from one another, constitutes the majority of the universe's energy and mass. View News Article (2015-08-21)


Mystery of exploding stars yields to astrophysicists
A longstanding mystery about the tiny stars that let loose powerful explosions known as Type Ia supernovae might finally be solved.  View News Article (2015-08-20)


Detection of gamma rays from a newly discovered dwarf galaxy may point to dark matter
A newly discovered dwarf galaxy orbiting our own Milky Way has offered up a surprise -- it appears to be radiating gamma rays, according to an analysis by physicists at Carnegie Mellon, Brown, and Cambridge universities. View News Article (2015-08-19)


Dark Energy Survey finds more celestial neighbors
Scientists on the Dark Energy Survey, using one of the world's most powerful digital cameras, have discovered eight more faint celestial objects hovering near our Milky Way galaxy.  View News Article (2015-08-18)


Rogue supernovas likely flung into space by black hole slingshots
Rogue supernovas that explode all alone in deep space present an astronomical mystery. Where did they come from? How did they get there? The likely answer: a binary black hole slingshot, according to a new study by Ryan Foley, a professor of astronomy and physics at the University of Illinois.  View News Article (2015-08-14)


Sorting through thickets of stars in elliptical galaxies far, far away
A Yale University astronomer has helped untangle the cosmic knots of stars at the center of giant, elliptical galaxies.  View News Article (2015-08-10)


NASA's Hubble finds evidence of galaxy star birth regulated by black-hole fountain
Astronomers have uncovered a unique process for how the universe's largest elliptical galaxies continue making stars long after their peak years of star birth. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope's exquisite high resolution and ultraviolet-light sensitivity allowed the astronomers to see brilliant knots of hot, blue stars forming along the jets of active black holes found in the centers of giant...
