Mysterious ripples found racing through planet-forming disc
Using images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and ESO's Very Large Telescope, astronomers have discovered never-before-seen structures within a dusty disc surrounding a nearby star.  View News Article (2015-10-08)

Peeking into our galaxy's stellar nursery
Astronomers have long turned their telescopes, be they on satellites in space or observatories on Earth, to the wide swaths of interstellar medium to get a look at the formation and birth of stars. View News Article (2015-10-06)

'Fossils' of galaxies reveal the formation and evolution of massive galaxies
An international team led by researchers at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Z├╝rich observed massive dead galaxies in the universe 4 billion years after the Big Bang with the Subaru Telescope's Multi-Object InfraRed Camera and Spectrograph (MOIRCS).  View News Article (2015-09-28)

11-year cosmic search leads to black hole rethink
One hundred years since Einstein proposed gravitational waves as part of his general theory of relativity, an 11-year search performed with CSIRO's Parkes telescope has failed to detect them, casting doubt on our understanding of galaxies and black holes.  View News Article (2015-09-25)

Discovery of potential gravitational lenses shows citizen science value
Around 37,000 citizen scientists combed through 430,000 images to help an international team of researchers to discover 29 new gravitational lens candidates through Space Warps, an online classification system which guides citizen scientists to become lens hunters. View News Article (2015-09-24)

A cosmic rose with many names
The nebula pictured here may have had more names bestowed upon it over the ages than any other object of its kind. Although officially known as Messier 17, its nicknames include: the Omega Nebula, the Swan Nebula, the Checkmark Nebula, the Horseshoe Nebula and -- lest those with more of a more marine bent miss out -- the Lobster Nebula. View News Article (2015-09-23)

Hot, dense material surrounds O-type star with largest magnetic field known
Observations using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory revealed that the unusually large magnetosphere around an O-type star called NGC 1624-2 contains a raging storm of extreme stellar winds and dense plasma that gobbles up X-rays before they can escape into space.  View News Article (2015-09-23)

Pairs of supermassive black holes in galaxies may be rarer than previously thought
There may be fewer pairs of supermassive black holes orbiting each other at the cores of giant galaxies than previously thought, according to a new study by astronomers who analyzed data from the National Science Foundation's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope. View News Article (2015-09-22)

Surfing over simulated ripples in graphene
The single-carbon-atom-thick material, graphene, featuring ripples is not easy to understand. Instead of creating such ripples physically, physicists investigating this kind of unusually shaped material rely on a quantum simulator.  View News Article (2015-09-21)

Researchers propose new way to chart the cosmos in 3-D
If only calculating the distance between Earth and far-off galaxies was as easy as pulling out the old measuring tape. Now UBC researchers are proposing a new way to calculate distances in the cosmos using mysterious bursts of energy. View News Article (2015-09-21)
