THE MAKING OF THE MILKY WAY HALO
The brightest objects in the halo are the globular clusters. They are large groupings of stars that were formed together in the very early evolutionary phases of the Milky Way, some 12,000 - 14,000 million years ago. This happened soon after the moment when the first structures emerged in the large cloud of primordial hydrogen in which our Galaxy was born. View News Article (1999-02-18)


The universe does think small
The biggest galaxies in the universe are elliptical galaxies. The largest of these hold over one trillion stars according to astronomical census takers, compared to 400 billion in our Milky Way. View News Article (2010-12-02)


Black Holes Grow Big by Eating Stars
Most galaxies, including the Milky Way, have a supermassive black hole at their center weighing millions to billions of suns. View News Article (2012-04-03)


VISTA finds 96 star clusters hidden behind dust
This result comes just one year after the start of the VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea programme (VVV), one of the six public surveys on the new telescope. The results will appear in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. View News Article (2011-08-03)


Giant Intergalactic Gas Stream Longer than Thought
A giant stream of gas flowing from neighbor galaxies around our own Milky Way is much longer and older than previously thought, astronomers have discovered. The new revelations provide a fresh insight on what started the gaseous intergalactic streamer. View News Article (2010-01-05)


Massive stars mark out Milky Way's 'missing' arms
A 12-year study of massive stars has reaffirmed that our Galaxy has four spiral arms, following years of debate sparked by images taken by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope that only showed two arms. View News Article (2013-12-17)


Magellanic gemstones in the southern sky
Hubble has captured the most detailed images to date of the open star clusters NGC 265 and NGC 290 in the Small Magellanic Cloud-two sparkling sets of gemstones in the southern sky. View News Article (2006-04-18)


Intense heat killed the Universe's would-be galaxies, researchers say

Planets around stars are the rule rather than the exception
There are more exoplanets further away from their parent stars than originally thought, according to new astrophysics research. View News Article (2012-01-13)


Map of universe questioned; dwarf galaxies don't fit standard model
Dwarf galaxies that orbit the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxies defy the accepted model of galaxy formation, and recent attempts to wedge them into the model are flawed, reports an international team of astrophysicists.  View News Article (2014-06-11)
