Rogue stars ejected from the galaxy are found in intergalactic space
It's very difficult to kick a star out of the galaxy. In fact, the primary mechanism that astronomers have come up with that can give a star the two-million-plus mile-per-hour kick it takes requires a close encounter with the supermassive black hole at the galaxy's core. View News Article (2012-05-01)

Astronomers at the University of Michigan have found what are believed to be some of the youngest solar systems yet detected. View News Article (2007-11-30)

Stellar still births
The systematics of celestial bodies apparently needs to be revised. Researchers at the Argelander Institute of Astronomy of the University of Bonn have discovered that brown dwarfs need to be treated as a separate class in addition to stars and planets. View News Article (2008-08-25)

A cosmic superbubble
The Large Magellanic Cloud is a small neighbouring galaxy to the Milky Way. It contains many regions where clouds of gas and dust are forming new stars. One such region, surrounding the star cluster NGC 1929, is shown in close-up in this new image from ESO's Very Large Telescope. View News Article (2011-07-20)

Astronomers see faintest stars in a globular cluster
Astronomers report in the Aug. 18 issue of the journal Science seeing the faintest stars ever seen in any globular star cluster. The light from these dim stars is only as bright as the light produced by a birthday candle on the moon, as seen from Earth. The astronomers used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. View News Article (2006-08-21)

Argonne scientists develop way to predict properties of light nuclei
Scientists have spent 70 years trying to predict the properties of nuclei, but have had to settle for approximate models because computational techniques were not equal to the task. View News Article (2008-05-22)

There's more star-stuff out there but it's not Dark Matter

Opening up a colorful cosmic jewel box
Star clusters are among the most visually alluring and astrophysically fascinating objects in the sky. One of the most spectacular nestles deep in the southern skies near the Southern Cross in the constellation of Crux. View News Article (2009-10-29)

Classic portrait of a barred spiral galaxy

VLT Observations Address the Age of the Universe
The stream of important scientific results from ESOs Very Large Telescope (VLT) at Paranal (Chile) is increasing. Astronomers have had access to the first of the four 8.2-m telescopes since April 1999 and research articles based on observations with this new powerful facility are beginning to appear in larger numbers. The work reported here is one fine example. View News Article (1999-12-17)
