An international team of researchers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and several other observatories have, for the first time, uncovered a galaxy in our cosmic neighbourhood that is missing most — if not all — of its dark matter. This discovery of the galaxy NGC 1052-DF2 challenges ...
Two galaxies surrounding our Milky Way are playing a game of gravitational tug-of-war, and new data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has revealed the cosmic winner. The two players are the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and its more massive sibling, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Not only ...

Astronomer Jennifer Wiseman grew up in Arkansas, on her family's farm in the Ozark Mountains. At night she would gaze at stars stretching “from horizon to horizon”, and she developed a deep curiosity about the universe. While studying physics at MIT, Jennifer discovered a comet, which is now named for ...
NASA has just added a set of spectacular new images to its catalog of deep-sky objects named after the French astronomer Charles Messier (1730-1817). Messier's main line of work was identifying new comets. However, he was limited by the small telescopes available to him, often coming across faint ...

Many disc galaxies, including our own Milky Way Galaxy, have a central concentration of stars called a 'bulge.' For decades, astronomers had a simple view of Milky Way's bulge as a quiescent place composed of extremely old stars. Now, a new analysis of about 10,000 Sun-like stars reveals that our ...
Researchers observed the supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy SDSS J1354+1327 with the Chandra X-ray Telescope (pink) and Hubble Space Telescope, noticing evidence of two "burps" of high-energy particles emanating from the black hole. One (below the black hole) has spread further, ...
In an unprecedented deep survey for small, faint objects in the Orion Nebula, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered the largest known population of brown dwarfs sprinkled among newborn stars. Looking in the vicinity of the survey stars, researchers not only found several ...
