If the Universe made a slasher flick, it would star the innocent bystander spiral galaxy ESO 137-001 and violent baddie galaxy cluster Abell 3627. Continue reading →
Theoretical physicists may have stumbled onto a solution to the black hole "information paradox" -- what if a black hole's singularity isn't an infinitely dense point in space-time? Continue reading →
After carrying out a vast survey using data from multiple observatories, astronomers think they've found the 'missing link' for the earliest compact galaxies. Continue reading →
