The Intergalactic Medium Unveiled: Caltech's Cosmic Web Imager Directly Observes 'Dim Matter'
Caltech astronomers have taken unprecedented images of the intergalactic medium (IGM)-the diffuse gas that connects galaxies throughout the universe-with the Cosmic Web Imager, an instrument designed and built at Caltech. View News Article (2014-04-30)


A cross-section of the universe
An image of a galaxy cluster taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope gives a remarkable cross-section of the Universe, showing objects at different distances and stages in cosmic history.  View News Article (2014-04-18)


Researchers say distant quasars could close a loophole in quantum mechanics
In a paper published this week in the journal Physical Review Letters, MIT researchers propose an experiment that may close the last major loophole of Bell's inequality - a 50-year-old theorem that, if violated by experiments, would mean that our universe is based not on the textbook laws of classical physics, but on the less-tangible probabilities of quantum mechanics.  View News Article (2014-02-21)


Distant quasar illuminates a filament of the cosmic web
Astronomers have discovered a distant quasar illuminating a vast nebula of diffuse gas, revealing for the first time part of the network of filaments thought to connect galaxies in a cosmic web. View News Article (2014-01-20)


Quasars illuminate swiftly swirling clouds around galaxies
A new study of light from quasars has provided astronomers with illuminating insights into the swirling clouds of gas that form stars and galaxies, proving that the clouds can shift and change much more quickly than previously thought. View News Article (2014-01-09)


Shedding New Light on the Brightest Objects in the Universe
Quasars are among the brightest, oldest, most distant, and most powerful objects in the universe. Powered by massive black holes at the center of most known galaxies, quasars can emit enormous amounts of energy, up to a thousand times the total output of the hundreds of billions of stars in our entire Milky Way. View News Article (2013-07-25)


Feeding galaxy caught in distant searchlight
Astronomers have always suspected that galaxies grow by pulling in material from their surroundings, but this process has proved very difficult to observe directly. View News Article (2013-07-08)


Feeding galaxy caught in distant searchlight by international research team
An international group of astronomers that includes UC Santa Barbara astrophysicist Crystal Martin and former UCSB postdoctoral researcher Nicolas Bouché has spotted a distant galaxy hungrily snacking on nearby gas. View News Article (2013-07-08)


New knowledge about early galaxies
The early galaxies of the universe were very different from today's galaxies. Using new detailed studies carried out with the ESO Very Large Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope, researchers, including members from the Niels Bohr Institute, have studied an early galaxy in unprecedented detail and determined a number of important properties such as size, mass, content of elements and have...

'Sideline quasars' helped to stifle early galaxy formation, says CU-Boulder study
University of Colorado Boulder astronomers targeting one of the brightest quasars glowing in the universe some 11 billion years ago say "sideline quasars" likely teamed up with it to heat abundant helium gas billions of years ago, preventing small galaxy formation. View News Article (2013-03-22)
