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)

The tell-tale signs of a galactic merger
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured this striking view of spiral galaxy NGC 7714. This galaxy has drifted too close to another nearby galaxy and the dramatic interaction has twisted its spiral arms out of shape, dragged streams of material out into space, and triggered bright bursts of star formation. View News Article (2015-01-29)

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)
