Supernova radioisotopes show sun was born in star cluster, scientists say
The death of a massive nearby star billions of years ago offers evidence the sun was born in a star cluster, say astronomers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. View News Article (2006-10-05)

Cosmic dance helps galaxies lose weight
A study published this week in the journal Nature offers an explanation for the origin of dwarf spheroidal galaxies. The research may settle an outstanding puzzle in understanding galaxy formation. View News Article (2009-07-30)

Study sheds new light on early star formation in the universe
A groundbreaking study has provided new insight into the way the first stars were formed at the start of the Universe, some 13 billion years ago. View News Article (2007-09-14)

From galaxy collisions to star birth: ISO finds the missing link
Data from ISO, the infrared observatory of the European Space Agency (ESA), have provided the first direct evidence that shock waves generated by galaxy collisions excite the gas from which new stars will form. The result also provides important clues on how the birth of the first stars was triggered and speeded up in the early Universe. By observing our galaxy and others, scientists have long...

Australians discover oldest star
A team led by astronomers at The Australian National University has discovered the oldest known star in the Universe, which formed shortly after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago. View News Article (2014-02-10)

University of Hawaii at Manoa astronomers discover pair of solar systems in the making
Two University of Hawai'i at Mānoa astronomers have found a binary star-disk system in which each star is surrounded by the kind of dust disk that is frequently the precursor of a planetary system. View News Article (2009-07-01)

Hubble images some of galaxy's dimmest stars
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have imaged some of the galaxy's oldest and dimmest stars, offering a rare experimental glimpse of two mysterious star types - tiny, slow burners less than one-tenth the size of our sun and once giant stars that still glow more than 10 billion years after their deaths. View News Article (2006-08-21)

Galactic 'rain' could be key to star formation
Some of the galaxies in our universe are veritable star nurseries. For example, our own Milky Way produces, on average, at least one new star every year. View News Article (2015-03-05)

First of missing primitive stars discovered
Astronomers have discovered a relic from the early universe - a star that may have been among the second generation of stars to form after the Big Bang. View News Article (2010-03-04)

Astronomers discover stars in early galaxies had a need for speed
A team of astronomers has measured the motions of stars in a very distant galaxy for the first time and discovered they are whizzing around at astonishingly high speeds-about one million miles per hour, or twice the speed at which the Sun circles our own Milky Way galaxy. View News Article (2009-08-07)
