Galaxy Zoo hunters help astronomers discover rare 'Green Pea' galaxies
A team of astronomers has discovered a group of rare galaxies called the "Green Peas" with the help of citizen scientists working through an online project called Galaxy Zoo. The finding could lend unique insights into how galaxies form stars in the early universe. View News Article (2009-07-28)

New insights into the 'hidden' galaxies of the universe
A unique example of some of the lowest surface brightness galaxies in the universe have been found by an international team of astronomers lead by the Niels Bohr Institute. View News Article (2011-06-15)

NRL Researchers Study Galaxy Mergers
Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory have solved a long-standing dilemma about the mass of infrared bright merging galaxies. Because galaxies are the largest directly observable objects in the universe, learning more about their formation is key to understanding how the universe works. View News Article (2010-04-20)

Data from outer space open new frontiers for researchers
The latest data delivered back to Earth by the Herschel Space Observatory (HSO)-launched in May by the European Space Agency-has opened a new window on galaxies for researchers at McMaster University.  View News Article (2009-12-02)

UK Astronomers look forward to looking back
When NASA launches its Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) - the agency's fourth 'Great Observatory' - later this week, astronomers around the world will be looking forward to using one of the most powerful time machines ever built. Among those anticipating the opportunity to look back billions of years to an era when the universe was in its youth are Professor Michael Rowan-Robinson... View News Article (2003-08-19)

Hubble celebrates 19th anniversary with fountain of youth
NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's 19 years of success, the orbiting telescope has photographed a peculiar system of galaxies known as Arp 194. This interacting group contains several galaxies along with a "cosmic fountain" of stars, gas and dust that stretches over 100 000 light years. View News Article (2009-04-22)

Hubble spots galaxies in close encounter
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has produced an image of a pair of interacting galaxies known as Arp 142. View News Article (2013-06-21)

Astronomers discover stars in early galaxies had a need for speed
A team of astronomers has measured the motions of stars in a very distant galaxy for the first time and discovered they are whizzing around at astonishingly high speeds-about one million miles per hour, or twice the speed at which the Sun circles our own Milky Way galaxy. View News Article (2009-08-07)

NGC 4696: A cosmic question mark
NGC 4696 is an elliptical galaxy with a difference. Lacking the complex structure and active star formation of their spiral brethren, elliptical galaxies are usually little more than shapeless collections of ageing stars. View News Article (2010-08-12)

Music of the black holes: they all play the same tune
Astronomers at the University of Southampton have uncovered a remarkable connection between the monstrous black holes residing at the hearts of distant galaxies and their comparatively tiny cousins which inhabit star systems in our own Milky Way: they are playing the same tunes. Dr Phil Uttley presents these findings in a talk called `The music of black holes` at the National Astronomy Meeting in... View News Article (2002-04-04)
