Spooky alignment of quasars across billions of light-years
Quasars are galaxies with very active supermassive black holes at their centres. These black holes are surrounded by spinning discs of extremely hot material that is often spewed out in long jets along their axes of rotation. View News Article (2014-11-19)


Mysterious quasar sequence explained
Quasars are supermassive black holes that live at the center of distant massive galaxies.  View News Article (2014-09-11)


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)
