York University astrophysicists detect ultra-fast winds near supermassive black hole
New research led by astrophysicists at York University has revealed the fastest winds ever seen at ultraviolet wavelengths near a supermassive black hole. (2016-03-22)

Record-breaking ultraviolet winds discovered near black hole
The fastest winds ever seen at ultraviolet wavelengths have been discovered near a supermassive black hole by a research team that includes a Penn State University astronomer. (2016-03-22)

A new spin on star-forming galaxies
Australian researchers have discovered why some galaxies are "clumpy" rather than spiral in shape--and it appears low spin is to blame. (2015-12-16)

ALMA spots monstrous baby galaxies cradled in dark matter
Astronomers discovered a nest of monstrous baby galaxies 11.5 billion light-years away using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). The young galaxies seem to reside at the junction of gigantic filaments in a web of dark matter. (2015-12-07)

A shy galactic neighbor
The Sculptor Dwarf Galaxy, pictured in this new image from the Wide Field Imager camera, installed on the 2.2-metre MPG/ESO telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory, is a close neighbour of our galaxy, the Milky Way. (2015-09-16)

Astronomers discover more than 800 dark galaxies in the famous Coma Cluster
A group of researchers from the Stony Brook University (the State University of New York) and the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan has discovered 854 "ultra dark galaxies" in the Coma Cluster by analyzing archival data from the Subaru Telescope. (2015-06-23)

Monster black hole discovered at cosmic dawn
Scientists have discovered the brightest quasar in the early universe, powered by the most massive black hole yet known at that time. (2015-02-26)

It's filamentary: How galaxies evolve in the cosmic web
How do galaxies like our Milky Way form, and just how do they evolve? Are galaxies affected by their surrounding environment? An international team of researchers, led by astronomers at the University of California, Riverside, proposes some answers. (2014-11-21)

Big Black Holes Can Block New Stars
Massive black holes spewing out radio-frequency-emitting particles at near-light speed can block formation of new stars in aging galaxies, a study has found. (2014-10-22)

Milky Way Ransacks Nearby Dwarf Galaxies, Stripping All Traces of Star-Forming Gas
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia, along with data from other large radio telescopes, have discovered that our nearest galactic neighbors, the dwarf spheroidal galaxies, are devoid of star-forming gas, and that our Milky Way Galaxy is to blame.
