Cause of galactic death: Strangulation
As murder mysteries go, it's a big one: how do galaxies die and what kills them? A new study, published today in the journal Nature, has found that the primary cause of galactic death is strangulation, which occurs after galaxies are cut off from the raw materials needed to make new stars.  View News Article (2015-05-13)


Galaxies are running out of gas
The Universe forms fewer stars than it used to, and a CSIRO study has now shown why - the galaxies are running out of gas. View News Article (2011-08-23)


There's more star-stuff out there but it's not Dark Matter
More atomic hydrogen gas - the ultimate fuel for stars - is lurking in today's Universe than we thought, CSIRO astronomer Dr Robert Braun has found. View News Article (2012-05-31)


Queen's physicist unlocking the mysteries of neighbouring galaxies
An international team of astronomers, including Queen's University physicist Larry Widrow, have uncovered evidence of a nearby cosmic encounter. View News Article (2009-09-08)


Green Pea galaxies could help astronomers understand early universe
The rare Green Pea galaxies discovered by the general public in 2007 could help confirm astronomers' understanding of reionization, a pivotal stage in the evolution of the early universe, say University of Michigan researchers. View News Article (2013-04-04)


NASA'S Chandra finds black holes stirring up galaxies
Black holes are creating havoc in unsuspected places, according to a new study of images of elliptical galaxies made by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. View News Article (2006-01-11)


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)


The Answer is Blowing in the Intergalactic Wind
Astronomers from the University of Toronto and the University of Arizona have provided the first direct evidence that an intergalactic "wind" is stripping galaxies of star-forming gas as they fall into clusters of galaxies. The observations help explain why galaxies found in clusters are known to have relatively little gas and less star formation when compared to non-cluster or... View News Article (2014-11-14)
