Unlike humans, galaxies don’t have an obesity problem. In fact there are far fewer galaxies at the most massive end of the galactic scale than expected and scientists have long sought to explain why. A new, UMD-led study published in the journal.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has weighed the largest known galaxy cluster in the distant universe and found that it definitely lives up to its nickname: El Gordo (Spanish for “the fat one”). Galaxy Cluster ‘El Gordo’ with Mass Map: This is a Hubble.
Black Hole Naps Amidst Stellar Chaos The Sculptor galaxy is seen in a new light, in this composite image from NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) and the European Southern Observatory in Chile.
Complex organic molecules such as formamide, from which sugars, amino acids and even nucleic acids essential for life can be made, already appear in the regions where stars similar to our Sun are born.
Hubble Uncovers Largest Known Group of Star Clusters, Clues to Dark Matter
Globular Clusters in Abell 1689 Galaxy Grouping. Hubble has uncovered the largest known population of globular star clusters, an estimated swarming like bees inside the crowded core of the giant grouping of galaxies known as Abel
The elliptical galaxy IC 2006 as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope. A new study suggests that the most massive elliptical galaxies stopped star formation near their centers roughly three billion years after the Big Bang
