New space telescope aims to seek out and record explosive gamma ray bursts.
A state of the art space telescope built by scientists at UCL will make its way to the Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland, USA on a mission to unravel the mysteries of the universes gamma rays. The telescope - called UVOT - will be one of three telescopes on a special NASA orbiting space observatory planned for launch in 2003. The observatory , called SWIFT, has been specially designed to... View News Article (2002-05-31)


Andromeda's once and future stars
Two ESA observatories have combined forces to show the Andromeda Galaxy in a new light. Herschel sees rings of star formation in this, the most detailed image of the Andromeda Galaxy ever taken at infrared wavelengths, and XMM-Newton shows dying stars shining X-rays into space. View News Article (2011-01-06)

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)


Rogue stars ejected from the galaxy are found in intergalactic space
