The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is back in business
Just a couple of days after the orbiting observatory was brought back online, Hubble aimed its prime working camera, the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), at a particularly intriguing target, a pair of gravitationally interacting galaxies called Arp 147. View News Article (2008-10-31)

Largest atlas of nuclear galactic rings unveiled
An international team of astrophysicists has just unveiled the most complete atlas of nuclear rings, enormous star-forming ring-shaped regions that circle certain galactic nuclei. View News Article (2010-04-30)

Witnessing starbursts in young galaxies
On March 13, it was announced the most vigorous bursts of star birth in the cosmos took place much earlier than previously thought - results now published in a set of papers in Nature and the Astrophysical Journal. View News Article (2013-03-15)

Cosmologists 'see' the cosmic dawn
The images, produced by scientists at Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology, show the "Cosmic Dawn" - the formation of the first big galaxies in the Universe. View News Article (2009-02-11)

We've got the beat: Astronomers discover a distant galaxy with a pulse
Astronomers at Yale and Harvard have found a galaxy with a heartbeat -- and they've taken its pulse.  View News Article (2015-11-17)

Caltech astronomers describe the bar scene at the beginning of the universe
Bars abound in spiral galaxies today, but this was not always the case. A group of 16 astronomers, led by Kartik Sheth of NASA's Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology, has found that bars tripled in number over the past seven billion years, indicating that spiral galaxies evolve in shape. View News Article (2008-07-30)

Newly discovered galaxy cluster in early stage of formation is farthest ever identified
UC Irvine scientists have discovered a cluster of galaxies in a very early stage of formation that is 11.4 billion light years from Earth - the farthest of its kind ever to be detected. View News Article (2008-04-01)

Seeing the Invisible - Astronomers Pin Down Dark Matter Distribution
The mysterious invisible Dark Matter in the Universe is distributed just like galaxies on large scales, according to findings by scientists in Edinburgh, Rutgers/Princeton and Cambridge, using data from the Anglo-Australian telescope 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey. What is more, there isn`t enough of it to cause the Universe to stop expanding. The findings come from detailed study of the 2dF... View News Article (2001-12-10)

Baffling boxy bulge
When targeting spiral galaxy bulges, astronomers often seek edge-on galaxies, as their bulges are more easily distinguishable from the disc. View News Article (2009-11-18)

Stripped down: Hubble highlights 2 galaxies that are losing it
Ram pressure is the drag force that results when something moves through a fluid - much like the wind you feel in your face when bicycling, even on a still day - and occurs in this context as galaxies orbiting about the centre of the cluster move through the intra-cluster medium, which then sweeps out gas from within the galaxies. View News Article (2009-09-30)
