Mysterious dance of dwarfs may force a cosmic rethink
The discovery that many small galaxies throughout the universe do not 'swarm' around larger ones like bees do but 'dance' in orderly disc-shaped orbits is a challenge to our understanding of how the universe formed and evolved. View News Article (2014-07-21)

Scientists solve cosmological puzzle
Researchers using supercomputer simulations have exposed a very violent and critical relationship between interstellar gas and dark matter when galaxies are born - one that has been largely ignored by the current model of how the universe evolved. View News Article (2007-11-30)

We're not alone -- but the universe may be less crowded than we think
There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the universe then might be expected, according to a new study led by Michigan State University. View News Article (2015-07-02)

Chance alignment between galaxies mimics a cosmic collision
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows a rare view of a pair of overlapping galaxies, called NGC 3314. The two galaxies look as if they are colliding, but they are actually separated by tens of millions of light-years, or about ten times the distance between our Milky Way and the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. View News Article (2012-06-15)

The universe does think small
The biggest galaxies in the universe are elliptical galaxies. The largest of these hold over one trillion stars according to astronomical census takers, compared to 400 billion in our Milky Way. View News Article (2010-12-02)

A new spin on star-forming galaxies
Australian researchers have discovered why some galaxies are "clumpy" rather than spiral in shape--and it appears low spin is to blame. View News Article (2015-12-16)

The feeding habits of teenage galaxies
Astronomers have known for some time that the earliest galaxies were much smaller than the impressive spiral and elliptical galaxies that now fill the Universe. View News Article (2012-03-14)

Astronomers put quasars in their place
A team of UK astronomers, led by postgraduate student Ed Hawkins, has made a decisive step toward resolving an argument that has rumbled on in the astronomical community for decades. The scientists from the University of Nottingham have been investigating the properties of quasars and nearby galaxies. As part of this study, they have overturned previous analyses which suggested that these two... View News Article (2002-10-03)

Galaxies of stars shrouded in dust found in the early universe
A team of astronomers based in the UK and the US has for the first time measured the redshifts of a significant sample of puzzling "submillimetre galaxies", discovered by some members of the team in 1997. Dr Ian Smail of the University of Durham will tell the UK/Ireland National Astronomy Meeting that these are remote galaxies with high redshifts, and are likely to contain huge numbers of young...

Into the Epoch of Galaxy Formation
Current theories hypothesize that more than 80% of all stars ever formed were assembled in galaxies during the latter half of the elapsed lifetime of the Universe, i.e., during the past 7-8 billion years. View News Article (2000-02-17)
