A simulation of the universe with realistic galaxies
An international team of astronomers, based at the Universities of Leiden in the Netherlands and Durham in the UK and, led by professor Joop Schaye (Leiden University), developed a simulation of the universe in which realistic galaxies are created; their mass, size and age are similar to those of observed galaxies. View News Article (2015-01-05)

Hubble spies a spiral snowflake
Together with irregular galaxies, spiral galaxies make up approximately 60 percent of the galaxies in the local universe.  View News Article (2016-05-16)

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)

Artificial intelligence finds messy galaxies
An astrophysics student at The Australian National University (ANU) has turned to artificial intelligence to help her to see into the hearts of galaxies.  View News Article (2015-10-28)

Hubble's sweeping view of the Coma Galaxy Cluster
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captures the magnificent starry population of the Coma Cluster of Galaxies, one of the densest known galaxy collections in the Universe. View News Article (2008-06-10)

Very distant galaxy cluster confirmed
The structures and star populations of massive galaxies appear to change as they age, but much about how these galaxies formed and evolved remains mysterious. View News Article (2014-05-22)

New 'alien' invaders found in the Milky Way: Queen's University astronomer
As many as one quarter of the star clusters in our Milky Way - many more than previously thought - are invaders from other galaxies, according to a new study. View News Article (2010-03-01)

Ancient galaxy cluster contains 'modern' galaxies
A team of astronomers including Ivelina Momcheva of the Carnegie Observatories has discovered the most distant cluster of galaxies ever found. View News Article (2010-05-13)
