Lofar's record-sharp image gives astronomers a new view of galaxy M 82
An international team of astronomers led from Chalmers University of Technology has used the giant radio telescope Lofar to create the sharpest astronomical image ever taken at very long radio wavelengths. View News Article (2015-01-29)


The tell-tale signs of a galactic merger
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured this striking view of spiral galaxy NGC 7714. This galaxy has drifted too close to another nearby galaxy and the dramatic interaction has twisted its spiral arms out of shape, dragged streams of material out into space, and triggered bright bursts of star formation. View News Article (2015-01-29)


H.E.S.S. finds three extremely luminous gamma-ray sources
Wits scientists are part of a multinational team of astronomers working on the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) telescopes that have again demonstrated its excellent capabilities in searching for high-energy gamma rays. View News Article (2015-01-26)


Galactic 'hailstorm' in the early universe
Two teams of astronomers led by researchers at the University of Cambridge have looked back nearly 13 billion years, when the Universe was less than 10 percent its present age, to determine how quasars - extremely luminous objects powered by supermassive black holes with the mass of a billion suns - regulate the formation of stars and the build-up of the most massive galaxies.  View News Article (2015-01-16)


Decoding the gravitational evolution of dark matter halos
Researchers at Kavli IPMU and their collaborators have revealed that considering environmental effects such as a gravitational tidal force spread over a scale much larger than a galaxy cluster is indispensable to explain the distribution and evolution of dark matter halos around galaxies.  View News Article (2015-01-14)


A simulation of the universe with realistic galaxies
An international team of astronomers, based at the Universities of Leiden in the Netherlands and Durham in the UK and, led by professor Joop Schaye (Leiden University), developed a simulation of the universe in which realistic galaxies are created; their mass, size and age are similar to those of observed galaxies. View News Article (2015-01-05)


'Perfect Storm' Quenching Star Formation around a Supermassive Black Hole
High-energy jets powered by supermassive black holes can blast away a galaxy's star-forming fuel, resulting in so-called "red and dead" galaxies: those brimming with ancient red stars yet containing little or no hydrogen gas to create new ones. View News Article (2014-12-18)


Strange Galaxy Perplexes Astronomers
With the help of citizen scientists, a team of astronomers has found an important new example of a very rare type of galaxy that may yield valuable insight on how galaxies developed in the early Universe. The new discovery technique promises to give astronomers many more examples of this important and mysterious type of galaxy. View News Article (2014-12-03)


Golden Ratio offers a unity of science
It is said to represent a "cosmic constant" found in the curvature of elephant tusks, the shape of a kudu's horn, the destructive beauty of Hurricane Katrina, and in the astronomical grandeur of how planets, moons, asteroids and rings are distributed in the solar system, to name but a few. View News Article (2014-12-01)


The riddle of the missing stars
Thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, some of the most mysterious cosmic residents have just become even more puzzling. View News Article (2014-11-21)
