Sometimes astronomy is like real estate — what’s important is location, location, and location.
In a dark, starless patch of intergalactic space, astronomers have discovered a never-before-seen cluster of hydrogen clouds strewn between two nearby galaxies, Andromeda and Triangulum.
Staring at a small patch of sky for more than 50 hours with the ultra-sensitive Very Large Array, astronomers have for the first time identified discrete sources that account for nearly all the radio waves coming from distant galaxies.
A strange stellar pair nearly 7,000 light-years from Earth has provided physicists with a unique cosmic laboratory for studying the nature of gravity.
Astronomers using a world-wide collection of telescopes have discovered the most prolific star factory in the Universe, surprisingly in a galaxy so distant that they see as it was when the Universe was only six percent of its current age.
Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array have discovered signs of star formation perilously close to the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.
