Seeing where stars collide
Scientists have imaged a cluster of stars, heavily obscured by material in our galaxy, where stars are so densely packed that it is likely a rare environment where stars can collide.  View News Article (2015-06-17)

European scientists discover previously unknown extreme star formation -- the 'Eye of Medusa'
NOEMA (Northern Extended Millimeter Array), the most powerful millimetre radio telescope of the Northern Hemisphere, has unveiled its first astronomical image: a unique and spectacular view of a previously unknown region of extreme star formation in the 'Medusa merger' - a luminous collision of two galaxies at more than 100 million light years from Earth.  View News Article (2015-06-16)

Nearby 'dwarf' galaxy is home to luminous star cluster
A team of Tel Aviv University and UCLA astronomers have discovered a remarkable cluster of more than a million young stars are forming in a hot, dusty cloud of molecular gases in a tiny galaxy very near our own. View News Article (2015-06-10)

Scientists see ripples of a particle-separating wave in primordial plasma
Scientists in the STAR collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, a particle accelerator exploring nuclear physics and the building blocks of matter at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, have new evidence for what's called a "chiral magnetic wave" rippling through the soup of quark-gluon plasma created in RHIC's energetic particle smashups.  View News Article (2015-06-08)

Supernovas help 'clean' galaxies
Supernovas just might be the maid service of the universe. It seems these explosions that mark the end of a star's life work hand-in-hand with supermassive black holes to sweep out gas and shut down galaxies' star-forming factories. View News Article (2015-05-27)

A bubbly cosmic celebration
This new image from ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile shows a spectacular red cloud of glowing hydrogen gas behind a collection of blue foreground stars.  View News Article (2015-05-27)

Hubble observes one-of-a-kind star nicknamed 'Nasty'
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered surprising new clues about a hefty, rapidly aging star whose behavior has never been seen before in our Milky Way galaxy. View News Article (2015-05-22)

The dreadful beauty of Medusa
This beautiful planetary nebula is named after a dreadful creature from Greek mythology -- the Gorgon Medusa. View News Article (2015-05-20)

Retirement in the suburbs
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, collected a census of young white dwarf stars beginning their migration from the crowded centre of an ancient star cluster to its less populated outskirts. View News Article (2015-05-15)

Astrophysicists prepare weather forecasts for planets beyond our solar system
"Cloudy for the morning, turning to clear with scorching heat in the afternoon." While this might describe a typical late-summer day in many places on Earth, it may also apply to planets outside our solar system, according to a new study by an international team of astrophysicists from the University of Toronto, York University and Queen's University Belfast. View News Article (2015-05-13)
