Stream of stars in Andromeda satellite galaxy shows cosmic collision
The Andromeda Galaxy is surrounded by a swarm of small satellite galaxies. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have detected a stream of stars in one of the Andromeda Galaxy's outer satellite galaxies, a dwarf galaxy called Andromeda II.  View News Article (2014-02-24)


A Glimpse of the Very Early Universal Web
The VLT Maps Extremely Distant Galaxies New, trailblazing observations with the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) at Paranal lend strong support to current computer models of the early universe: It is "spongy", with galaxies forming along filaments, like droplets along the strands of a spiders web. A group of astronomers at ESO and in Denmark determined the distances to some very faint galaxies in... View News Article (2001-05-18)


Unveiling the Secret of a Virgo Dwarf Galaxy
Dwarf galaxies may not be as impressive in appearance as their larger brethren, but they are at least as interestingfrom a scientific point of view. And sometimes they may have hidden properties that will only be found by means of careful observations, probing the signals of their stars at the faintest level. Such as the entirely unexpected, well developed spiral structure within an otherwise... View News Article (2000-05-03)

Sussex University astronomer takes part in NASA mission
When NASA launches its new orbiting observatory this week, a University of Sussex astronomer will be looking at parts of the universe never seen before. Dr Sebastian Oliver is one of just a handful of UK scientists involved in the largest project for NASA's Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF), which leaves Cape Canaveral on Saturday, August 23. For the next nine months Dr Oliver will help... View News Article (2003-08-20)
