  • Earliest Massive Cluster Of Known Galaxies Discovered
    Garching (SPX) Mar 03, 2005
    Combining observations with ESO's Very Large Telescope and ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory, astronomers have discovered the most distant, very massive structure in the Universe known so far. It is a remote cluster of galaxies that is found to weigh as much as several thousand galaxies like our own Milky Way and is located no less than 9,000 million light-years away.fullstory

    Distant Galaxies Show A Mature Universe Even In Childhood
    Paranal, Chile (SPX) Mar 03, 2005
    Scientists have discovered the most distant massive structure yet detected in the Universe, a fully formed galaxy cluster containing hundreds, if not thousands, of galaxies.

    Temperature Inside Collapsing Bubble Four Times That Of Sun
    Champaign IL (SPX) Mar 03, 2005
    Using a technique employed by astronomers to determine stellar surface temperatures, chemists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have measured the temperature inside a single, acoustically driven collapsing bubble. Their results seem out of this world.

    Newly Seen Force May Help Gravity In Star Formation
    Greenbelt MD (SPX) Mar 02, 2005
    Scientists have pierced through a dusty stellar nursery to capture the earliest and most detailed view of a collapsing gas cloud turning into a star, analogous to a baby's first ultrasound.

    Astronomers Detect Powerful Bursting Radio Source
    Sweet Briar VA (SPX) Mar 03, 2005
    Astronomers at Sweet Briar College and the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have detected a powerful new bursting radio source whose unique properties suggest the discovery of a new class of astronomical objects.
    Black Holes In A Radar Trap
    Garching, Germany (SPX) Feb 25, 2005
    European astronomers succeeded for the first time to confirm the signatures predicted near Black Holes by Albert Einstein's theory of Relativity in the light of the cosmic X-ray background.

    NASA Observatory Confirms Black Hole Limits
    Washington DC (SPX) Feb 16, 2005
    The very largest black holes reach a certain point and then grow no more. That's according to the best survey to date of black holes made with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.

    Simulations Show How Growing Black Holes Regulate Galaxy Formation
    Garching, Germany (SPX) Feb 10, 2005
    Using a new computer model of galaxy formation, researchers have shown that growing black holes release a blast of energy that fundamentally regulates galaxy evolution and black hole growth itself.
    First Dark Matter Galaxy Comes Into View
    Cardiff, UK (SPX) Mar 01, 2005
    A Cardiff-led team of astronomers has discovered an object that appears to be an invisible galaxy made almost entirely of dark matter the first ever detected. A dark galaxy is an area in the universe containing a large amount of mass that rotates like a galaxy, but contains no stars. Without any stars to give light, it could only be found using radio telescopes.

    Seeing The Invisible - First Dark Galaxy Discovered?
    Manchester, UK (SPX) Feb 24, 2005
    A British-led team of astronomers have discovered an object that appears to be an invisible galaxy made almost entirely of dark matter - the first ever detected.

    Scientists Take Aim At Dark Energy Problems
    Washington DC (SPX) Feb 17, 2005
    A panel of physicists and astronomers have been previewing emerging theories and experiments aimed at solving the mystery of dark energy, at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C.
    Spitzer Space Telescope Finds Bright Infrared Galaxies
    Ithaca NY (SPX) Mar 02, 2005
    A Cornell University-led team operating the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS), the largest of the three main instruments on NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, has discovered a mysterious population of distant and enormously powerful galaxies radiating in the infrared spectrum with many hundreds of times more power than our Milky Way galaxy.

    Blast Affected Earth From Halfway Across The Milky Way
    Cambridge MA (SPX) Feb 21, 2005
    Forget "Independence Day" or "War of the Worlds." A monstrous cosmic explosion last December showed that the earth is in more danger from real-life space threats than from hypothetical alien invasions.

    Brightest Explosion Ever Observed Overwhelms Telescopes
    Southampton, UK (SPX) Feb 18, 2005
    Scientists have detected a flash of light from across the Galaxy so powerful that it bounced off the Moon and lit up the Earth's upper atmosphere.

    New Measurement Undermines Physicists' Theories For Hidden 'Particle-Force'
    Rochester NY (SPX) Feb 14, 2005
    A new measurement by a student and professor at the University of Rochester has shed new light on the limits of scientists' standard model of physics.
