Scientists discover water in a distant galaxy pair

Water has been detected in the most massive galaxy pair in the early Universe, according to new observations from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).

Scientists Find Part Of Universe's Missing Matter
Scientists Find Part Of Universe's Missing Matter

A galactic wind was observed via the MUSE instrument at the European Southern Observatory and a unique observation regarding the Universe's missing matter was observed.

Researchers Discover Galaxy Surviving A Black Hole's 'Hunger'
Researchers Discover Galaxy Surviving A Black Hole's 'Hunger'

Washington: Researchers have discovered a galaxy that has been managing to survive a black hole’s hunger by continuing to birth new stars, about 100 Sun-sized stars a year. The discovery from NASA’s telescope on an airplane, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), can help explain how massive galaxies came to be, even though the […]

First-ever image of 'monster' black hole captured

London: In a historic feat, astronomers announced on Wednesday that they have captured the first-ever image of a black hole in a distant galaxy — the biggest tribute to the late Stephen Hawking who theorised about the existence of black holes emitting radiation in the universe. The image — taken by a network of eight […]

Mexican astrophysicist discovers first galaxies in universe

Mexico City: A Mexican astrophysicist has identified some of the first galaxies in our universe together with a team of researchers. The National Autonomous University of Mexico on Saturday said that the newly-identified galaxies are: Segue-1, Bootes I, Tucana II and Ursa Mayor I. All were formed more than 13 billion years ago, reports Xinhua […]

Planets beyond Milky Way galaxy discovered for first time

New York: A team of scientists from University of Oklahoma has discovered for the first time a population of planets beyond the Milky Way galaxy. The planet population, ranging from the size of the Moon to the size of Jupiter, were spotted in a galaxy located 3.8 billion light years away, according to the study […]

4GB Samsung 'Galaxy On' to cost nearly Rs 15K

New Delhi: In a bid to take on Chinese smartphone manufacturers in New Year, Samsung India is set to launch a new “Galaxy On” device in the third week of January. Industry sources told IANS that the latest device will be priced at around Rs 15,000 – a key mid-price segment in the highly-competitive Indian market. […]

Gravitational waves from neutron stars' merger just the beginning

Washington: In yet another interstellar feat, scientists at the LIGO detectors and the world over detected the first “ripples in space” or gravitational waves produced by the merger of two ancient remnants of stars known as neutron stars. The neutron stars merged in a galaxy called NGC 4993, located about 130 million light years from Earth […]

Astronomers spot elusive giant black hole couples

Washington: Astronomers including one of Indian-origin have identified five pairs of supermassive black holes, each containing millions of times the mass of the Sun, in the centres of galaxies. The findings could help astronomers better understand how giant black holes grow and how they may produce the strongest gravitational wave signals in the universe. These […]

Ultra-high energy cosmic rays come from outside our galaxy

New York: Researchers have found that some ultra-high energy cosmic rays that occasionally hit Earth come from a distant source outside the Milky Way. Cosmic rays are atomic nuclei that travel through space at speeds close to that of light. Low-energy cosmic rays come from the Sun or from our own galaxy, but the origin […]

Five-billion-year-old signal emitted by galaxy detected

Sydney: A powerful Australian telescope detected a radio wave which was emitted by galaxy PKS B1740-517, located near the constellation Ara, five billion years ago, scientific sources reported yesterday. The galaxy was discovered by the telescope SKA Pathfinder, owned by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, or CSIRO, at the Murchison Radio-Astronomical Observatory, about […]

distant galaxy
Number of distant galaxies fewer than thought

New York: The number of distant galaxies could be 10 to 100 times fewer than earlier thought, astronomers estimate. Over the years, the Hubble Space Telescope has allowed astronomers to look deep into the universe. The long view stirred theories of untold thousands of distant, faint galaxies. “Our work suggests that there are far fewer […]

Farthest known galaxy in universe discovered

An international team of astronomers has said they have discovered the most distant galaxy ever measured in the universe

Giant galaxies die inside out

In a major breakthrough towards understanding the formation of the universe, astronomers have figured out that star formation shuts down in the centres of elliptical galaxies first
