'We finally found it': Scientists get first look at 'monster' galaxy forming

Yale astronomers have discovered a new look at the formation of "the Universe's monster galaxies," reports, and the results are fascinating. The Yale researchers used data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, ESA's Herschel Space Observatory, and the W.M. Show More Summary

Watch: Galaxies collide in deep space

Animation released by the European Space Agency, including images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope and other telescopes in space and on the ground, shows the collision of two distant galaxies. Light from the collision would beShow More Summary

Hubble stirs up galactic soup

A new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a whole host of colorful and differently shaped galaxies; some bright and nearby, some fuzzy, and some so far from us they appear as small specks in the background sky. Together they appear as kind of galactic soup.

Destruction of Stars Near Black Holes Occurs Once Every 30,000 Years

The image above is a composite of data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope. The object seen at the center is an "ultraluminous X-ray source" (ULX) in a globular cluster belonging to an elliptical galaxy in...

NASA Is Building the World's First 3D-Printed Space Cameras

NASA is already using 3d printing to make rocket engine parts, a space pizza maker and even physical photos from the Hubble Space Telescope. "As far as I know, we are the first to attempt to build an entire instrument with 3D printing," Jason Budinoff, an aerospace engineer at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, said in a statement.

Possible zombie star found 110 million light years from Earth

Astronomers believe that by using the Hubble Space Telescope, they have spotted a rare zombie star 110 million light years away. Cosmic #zombie? @NASA_Hubble finds supernova that might leave behind potential 'zombie' star: More Summary

Hubble spots a 'zombie star': What it is and why it matters

3 weeks agoSports / Baseball : Dodgers Now

With the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, a team of researchers has spotted a "zombie star" lurking in deep space. What is this astronomical equivalent of the walking dead, and how did it get there?

NASA's Hubble finds supernova star system linked to potential 'zombie star'

Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, a team of astronomers has spotted a star system that could have left behind a "zombie star" after an unusually weak supernova explosion. A supernova typically obliterates the exploding white dwarf, or dying star. Show More Summary

Astronomers Happen Upon The Most Distant Lensing Galaxy Ever Discovered

3 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have spotted an elliptical galaxy 9.6-billion light years from Earth that is so colossal, its gravity bends and magnifies the light from a galaxy behind it. The rare alignment is the most distant example of a lensing galaxy ever discovered, and could yield insights into the formation of the early universe. Read more...

Monster Elliptical Galaxy Sets Age Record --Reveals Clues to Today's Dark-Matter Domination of the Universe

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have unexpectedly discovered the most distant galaxy that acts as a cosmic magnifying glass. Seen here as it looked 9.6 billion years ago, this monster elliptical galaxy breaks the previous record-holder by 200 million...

Record-Breaking Galaxy Is So Big It Acts Like a Magnifying Glass

4 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Some galaxies are so positively massive that their gravity actually distorts the light from objects behind it, turning the entire galaxy into our very own intergalactic magnifying glass. And now, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope just found the most distant one ever. Read more...

Dry heat: Hot Jupiters hold surprisingly little water, study finds

Planetary scientists searching for water on three distant exoplanets have come up dry. Scientists who trained NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope on three “hot Jupiters” have discovered that they have far less water vapor than previously thought.

NASA begins to plan successor to the Hubble and James Webb deep space telescopes
