Stream of stars in Andromeda satellite galaxy shows cosmic collision
The Andromeda Galaxy is surrounded by a swarm of small satellite galaxies. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have detected a stream of stars in one of the Andromeda Galaxy's outer satellite galaxies, a dwarf galaxy called Andromeda II.  View News Article (2014-02-24)


Twin Star Explosions Fascinate Astronomers
Scientists using NASA's Swift satellite stumbled upon a rare sight, two supernovas side by side in one galaxy. View News Article (2006-11-21)


Galaxy NGC 4214: A star formation laboratory
Size isn't everything... in astronomy, at least. Dwarf galaxy NGC 4214 may be small, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in content. View News Article (2011-05-12)


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)


Orphan stars found in long galaxy tail
Astronomers have found evidence that stars have been forming in a long tail of gas that extends well outside its parent galaxy. This discovery suggests that such "orphan" stars may be much more prevalent than previously thought. View News Article (2007-09-21)


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)


Scientists discover 'catastrophic event' behind the halt of star birth in early galaxy formation
Scientists have found evidence of a catastrophic event they believe was responsible for halting the birth of stars in a galaxy in the early Universe. View News Article (2010-03-10)


Record-breaking galaxy cluster discovered
A massive galaxy cluster nearly six billion light years from Earth has been discovered with an astounding and unexpected burst of star formation - more prodigious than any galaxy cluster yet observed, an international team of astronomers and NASA announced today. View News Article (2012-08-16)


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 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)
