Astronomers discover new 'fossil galaxy' buried deep within the Milky Way
Scientists working with data from the Sloan Digital Sky Surveys' Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) have discovered a "fossil galaxy" hidden in the depths of our own Milky Way.
Seeing dark matter in a new light
A small team of astronomers have found a new way to 'see' the elusive dark matter haloes that surround galaxies, with a new technique 10 times more precise than the previous-best method. The work is published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
Astronomers indicate unusual radio waves are coming from inside our galaxy
Astronomers have deduced that a series of short, powerful radio waves received from space earlier this year are actually coming from within our own galaxy.
Astronomers find monster black hole with six galaxies trapped in its gravitational web
Astronomers have discovered six galaxies ensnared in the cosmic "spider's web" of a supermassive black hole soon after the Big Bang, according to research published Thursday that could help explain the development of these enigmatic monsters.
Astronomers see possible hints of life in clouds of Venus
Astronomers have found a potential sign of life high in the atmosphere of neighboring Venus: Hints there may be bizarre microbes living in the sulfuric acid-laden clouds of the hothouse planet.
Astronomers discover a surprise twist in the mystery of dark matter
The full nature of dark matter remains elusive, but new observations of a distant galaxy cluster have revealed that something is missing from even the fundamental theories astronomers use to map this invisible part of the universe.
Astronomers detect the most massive neutron star yet
Astronomers have discovered the most massive example yet of the dead stars known as neutron stars, one almost too massive to exist, a new study found.
Astronomers find Milky Way is a warped, twisted galaxy
Astronomers have created the most precise map to date of the Milky Way by tracking thousands of big pulsating stars spread throughout the galaxy, demonstrating that its disk of myriad stars is not flat but dramatically warped and twisted in shape.
Astronomers deliver first photo of black hole
Astronomers on Wednesday unveiled the first photo of a black hole, one of the star-devouring monsters scattered throughout the Universe and obscured by impenetrable shields of gravity.
Making head or tail of a galactic landscape
Astronomers have used data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to capture a dramatic image of an enormous tail of hot gas stretching for more than a million light years behind a group of galaxies that is falling into the depths of an even-larger cluster of galaxies.
Astronomers assemble 'light-fingerprints' to unveil mysteries of the cosmos
Earthbound detectives rely on fingerprints to solve their cases; now astronomers can do the same, using ‘light-fingerprints’ instead of skin grooves to uncover the mysteries of exoplanets.
Astronomers find remainder of Universe's missing ordinary matter
Until now, scientists had only found roughly two-thirds of the cosmos' ordinary matter. But astronomers have solved the so-called ‘missing baryon problem’, locating the last reservoir of missing ordinary matter.
Astronomers identify 121 giant planets  likely to host habitable moons
Astronomers have identified 121 giant planets that potentially host habitable moons. Scientists believe the next generation of telescopes will be able to target alien moons in search of signs of life.
