As many as one quarter of the star clusters in our Milky Way - many more than previously thought - are invaders from other galaxies, according to a new study. View News Article (2010-03-01)


Astronomers catch binary star explosion inside nebula
The explosion of a binary star inside a planetary nebula has been captured by a team led by UCL (University College London) researchers - an event that has not been witnessed for more than 100 years. View News Article (2008-11-20)


The missing link in the evolution of magnetic cataclysmic stars?
An international team of astronomers might have discovered the missing link in the evolution of the so-called magnetic cataclysmic variable stars. They determined the spin and orbital periods of the binary star Paloma. View News Article (2007-09-17)


CSIRO telescope spots mega-star cradle
Using a CSIRO radio telescope, an international team of researchers has caught an enormous cloud of cosmic gas and dust in the process of collapsing in on itself - a discovery which could help solve one of astronomy's enduring conundrums: 'How do massive stars form?' View News Article (2010-05-03)


UBC astronomers discover how white dwarf stars get their 'kicks'
University of British Columbia astronomer Harvey Richer and UBC graduate student Saul Davis have discovered that white dwarf stars are born with a natal kick, explaining why these smoldering embers of Sun-like stars are found on the edge rather than at the centre of globular star clusters. View News Article (2007-12-05)


Astronomers detect stellar ashes at dawn of time
Using a powerful instrument on a telescope in Hawaii, UK astronomers have found ashes from a generation of stars that died over 10 billion years ago. This is the first time that the tell-tale cosmic dust has been detected at such an early stage in the evolution of the universe. View News Article (2002-04-10)


Neutron stars can be more massive, while black holes are more rare, Arecibo Observatory finds
Neutron stars and black holes aren't all they've been thought to be. In fact, neutron stars can be considerably more massive than previously believed, and it is more difficult to form black holes, according to new research developed by using the Arecibo Observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. View News Article (2008-01-15)


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)
