All stars begin their lives in groups. Most stars, including our Sun, are born in small, benign groups that quickly fall apart. View News Article (2013-06-27)


At Least One in Six Stars Has an Earth-sized Planet
The quest for a twin Earth is heating up. Using NASA's Kepler spacecraft, astronomers are beginning to find Earth-sized planets orbiting distant stars.  View News Article (2013-01-08)


Trigger-happy star formation
A new study from two of NASA's Great Observatories provides fresh insight into how some stars are born, along with a beautiful new image of a stellar nursery in our Galaxy. View News Article (2009-08-13)


The Milky Way's tiny but tough galactic neighbor
In the new ESO image, Barnard's Galaxy glows beneath a sea of foreground stars in the direction of the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer). View News Article (2009-10-14)


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)


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)

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)


Youngest solar systems detected by U-M astronomers
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)
