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)


Entire galaxies feel the heat from newborn stars
When galaxies form new stars, they sometimes do so in frantic episodes of activity known as starbursts. These events were commonplace in the early Universe, but are rarer in nearby galaxies. View News Article (2013-04-25)


'Cosmic telescopes' may have found infant galaxies
Using massive clusters of galaxies as "cosmic telescopes," a research team led by a Johns Hopkins University astronomer has found what may be infant galaxies born in the first billion years after the beginning of the universe. View News Article (2006-06-06)


'Dead' galaxies aren't so dead after all, U-M researchers find
University of Michigan astronomers examined old galaxies and were surprised to discover that they are still making new stars. The results provide insights into how galaxies evolve with time. View News Article (2011-06-01)


Carbon monoxide predicts 'red and dead' future of gas guzzler galaxy
Astronomers have studied the carbon monoxide in a galaxy over 12 billion light years from Earth and discovered that it's running out of gas, quite literally, and headed for a 'red and dead' future. View News Article (2014-07-09)


New recipe for dwarf galaxies: Start with leftover gas
There is more than one way to make a dwarf galaxy, and NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer has found a new recipe. View News Article (2009-02-19)


Where did today's spiral galaxies come from?
Hubble shows that the beautiful spirals galaxies of the modern Universe were the ugly ducklings of six billion years ago. View News Article (2010-02-05)


The wild early lives of today's most massive galaxies
Astronomers have combined observations from the LABOCA camera on the ESO-operated 12-metre Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope with measurements made with ESO's Very Large Telescope, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, and others, to look at the way that bright, distant galaxies are gathered together in groups or clusters. View News Article (2012-01-25)


Shedding light on the cosmic skeleton
"Matter is not distributed uniformly in the Universe," says Masayuki Tanaka from ESO, who led the new study. "In our cosmic vicinity, stars form in galaxies and galaxies usually form groups and clusters of galaxies. The most widely accepted cosmological theories predict that matter also clumps on a larger scale in the so-called 'cosmic web', in which galaxies, embedded in filaments...

Dark matter mystery deepens in cosmic 'train wreck'
Astronomers have discovered a chaotic scene unlike any witnessed before in a cosmic "train wreck" between giant galaxy clusters. View News Article (2007-08-17)
