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.
Scientific 'red flag' reveals new clues about our galaxy
Figuring out how much energy permeates the center of the Milky Way — a discovery reported in the journal Science Advances — could yield new clues to the fundamental source of our galaxy's power, said L. Matthew Haffner of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Astronomers pinpoint origin of huge gas bubbles flowing out of Milky Way
There's an unusual paradox hampering research into parts of the Milky Way. Dense gas blocks observations of the galactic core, and it can be difficult to observe in visible light from our vantage point.
Milky Way could be catapulting stars into its outer halo: UCI astronomers
Though mighty, the Milky Way and galaxies of similar mass are not without scars chronicling turbulent histories. University of California, Irvine (UCI) astronomers and others have shown that clusters of supernovas can cause the birth of scattered, eccentrically orbiting suns in outer stellar halos, upending commonly held notions of how star systems have formed and evolved over billions of years.
Milky Way is warped; it may be the legacy of an ongoing galactic collision
The Milky Way isn't like other barred spiral galaxies. Instead of a nice, tidy flat disc, it has a kink in its spine, a twist in its swagger. As we have long known, and two separate studies recently confirmed, the Milky Way is seriously warped around the edges, a strange idiosyncrasy that's been puzzling astronomers for years.
Astronomers detect molecular oxygen in another galaxy for first time
In a wild galaxy over half a billion light-years away, astronomers have detected molecular oxygen. It's only the third such detection ever outside the solar system – and the first outside the Milky Way.
New map of Milky Way reveals giant wave of stellar nurseries
Astronomers at Harvard University discovered a monolithic, wave-shaped gaseous structure — the largest ever seen in our galaxy — made up of interconnected stellar nurseries.
Hubble sees our galaxy sucking up mysterious amount of gas
The Milky Way seems to be gobbling up a mysterious amount of gas — more than it spits back out, according to a new paper.
Milky Way’s center exploded 3.5m years ago
A titanic, expanding beam of energy sprang from close to the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way just 3.5 million years ago, sending a cone-shaped burst of radiation through both poles of the Galaxy and out into deep space.
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.
Early days of Milky Way revealed
The universe 13 billion years ago was very different from the universe we know today.
Our Milky Way galaxy is truly warped, at least around edges
It turns out our Milky Way galaxy is truly warped, at least around the far edges.
Five developments in space, time and fusion
Projects from gravitational wave detection to viewing the Milky Way and generating thermonuclear power march ahead in the future as the guardian.com reported.
