This Just In
The prospect of measuring the mass of the most massive known objects in the universe would send most people into a cold sweat, but for astronomers it's all in a day's work.
After poring over the details of the most perfect Einstein Ring imaged to date, ALMA astronomers have discovered that this distant galaxy is a frenzy of star formation.
Astronomers have witnessed, for the first time, a relativistic collision in a black hole jet millions of light-years from Earth.
Powerful jets of material spewing from the edge of monster black holes may be more likely to arise where two galaxies have merged together.
Astronomers get a first look at the conditions that may have led to the creation of most star clusters.
Astronomers have found a quartet of quasars embedded in a single cloud of cold gas, a discovery that challenges currently held theories about how these rare objects form.
Astronomers studying the globular star clusters orbiting the giant elliptical galaxy Centaurus A (NGC 5128) have stumbled upon a fascinating discovery -- the clusters are too massive.
Astronomers may have solved the decades-long cosmic murder mystery of what kills most galaxies in the universe: They are strangled to death, so they can no longer create new stars.
