Astrophysicists catch 2 supernovae at the moment of explosion
An international team of astrophysicists led by Peter Garnavich, professor of astrophysics at the University of Notre Dame, has caught two supernovae in the act of exploding.  View News Article (2016-03-22)


The center of the Milky Way
Researchers have been mapping the centre of our galaxy in very-high-energy gamma rays using these telescopes - the most sensitive of their kind - for over 10 years.  View News Article (2016-03-22)


Galactic center's gamma rays unlikely to originate from dark matter, evidence shows
Bursts of gamma rays from the center of our galaxy are not likely to be signals of dark matter but rather other astrophysical phenomena such as fast-rotating stars called millisecond pulsars, according to two new studies, one from a team based at Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and another based in the Netherlands. View News Article (2016-02-04)


Hubble sees monstrous cloud boomerang back to our galaxy
Hubble Space Telescope astronomers are finding that the old adage "what goes up must come down" even applies to an immense cloud of hydrogen gas outside our Milky Way galaxy. The invisible cloud is plummeting toward our galaxy at nearly 700,000 miles per hour. View News Article (2016-02-01)


Stellar parenting: Giant star clusters make new stars by 'adopting' stray cosmic gases
Among the most striking objects in the universe are the dense, glittering swarms of stars known as globular clusters. Astronomers had long thought globular clusters formed their millions of stars in bulk at around the same time, with each cluster's stars having very similar ages, much like twin brothers and sisters. View News Article (2016-01-28)


The Milky Way's clean and tidy galactic neighbor
IC 1613 is a dwarf galaxy in the constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster). This VST image shows the galaxy's unconventional beauty, all scattered stars and bright pink gas, in great detail. View News Article (2016-01-27)


Dark 'noodles' may lurk in the Milky Way
Invisible structures shaped like noodles, lasagne sheets or hazelnuts could be floating around in our Galaxy radically challenging our understanding of gas conditions in the Milky Way. View News Article (2016-01-22)


Signs of second largest black hole in the Milky Way
A team of astronomers led by Tomoharu Oka, a professor at Keio University in Japan, has found an enigmatic gas cloud, called CO-0.40-0.22, only 200 light years away from the center of the Milky Way. View News Article (2016-01-18)


The dandelion uses latex to protect its roots against insect feeding
Dandelions are troublesome weeds that are detested by most gardeners. Yet dandelions also have many insect enemies in nature. View News Article (2016-01-06)


Mysterious radio signals from space are much better test of Einstein's General Relativity
A new way to test one of the basic principles underlying Einstein's theory of General Relativity using brief blasts of rare radio signals from space called Fast Radio Bursts is ten times, to one-hundred times better than previous testing methods that used gamma-ray bursts. View News Article (2016-01-04)
