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)

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)

The most distant mature galaxy cluster
"We have measured the distance to the most distant mature cluster of galaxies ever found", says the lead author of the study in which the observations from ESO's VLT have been used, Raphael Gobat (CEA, Paris).  View News Article (2011-03-09)

Classic portrait of a barred spiral galaxy
Most spiral galaxies in the Universe have a bar structure in their centre, and Hubble's image of NGC 1073 offers a particularly clear view of one of these. View News Article (2012-02-03)

Old Galaxies in the Young Universe
Very Large Telescope Unravels New Population of Very Old Massive Galaxies [1] Current theories of the formation of galaxies are based on the hierarchical merging of smaller entities into larger and larger structures, starting from about the size of a stellar globular cluster and ending with clusters of galaxies. According to this scenario, it is assumed that no massive galaxies existed in the... View News Article (2004-07-06)
