Evidence of star birth within a cloud of primordial gas has given astronomers a glimpse of a previously unknown mode of galaxy formation. The cloud, known as the Leo Ring, appears to lack the dark matter and heavy elements normally found in galaxies today. View News Article (2009-02-19)

Australian researchers pioneer a 'Google street view' of galaxies
A new home-grown instrument based on bundles of optical fibres is giving Australian astronomers the first 'Google street view' of the cosmos - incredibly detailed views of huge numbers of galaxies. View News Article (2014-07-23)

Puzzle of how spiral galaxies set their arms comes into focus
As the shapes of galaxies go, the spiral disk - with its characteristic pinwheel profile - is by far the most pedestrian. View News Article (2013-04-03)

Mining Data Archives Yields Haul of
The world of astronomy has changed. An astronomer used to have to travel to a remote location and endure long, cold nights, patiently guiding a telescope to collect precious photons of light. Now, a proliferation of online archives allows astronomers to make discoveries from the comfort of their own offices. View News Article (2014-06-12)

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is back in business
Just a couple of days after the orbiting observatory was brought back online, Hubble aimed its prime working camera, the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), at a particularly intriguing target, a pair of gravitationally interacting galaxies called Arp 147. View News Article (2008-10-31)

Largest atlas of nuclear galactic rings unveiled
An international team of astrophysicists has just unveiled the most complete atlas of nuclear rings, enormous star-forming ring-shaped regions that circle certain galactic nuclei. View News Article (2010-04-30)

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)
