Globular clusters could be factories of binary black holes  Jul 30, 1:03 pm
Washington DC, July 30 (ANI): Astronomers have detected dense star clusters that they claim could be the factories of binary black holes.
Proto super-star cluster discovered: A cosmic 'dinosaur egg' about to hatch  May 8, 4:01 pm
Washington, May 8 (ANI): Globular clusters, dazzling agglomerations of up to a million ancient stars, are among the oldest objects in the universe. Though plentiful in and around many galaxies, newborn examples are vanishingly rare, and the conditions necessary to create new ones have never been detected, until now.
Globular clusters rotate around common axis  May 10, 10:26 am
Washington, May 10 (ANI): While studying some of the oldest star clusters in our galaxy, astronomers from the University of Texas at Austin and Germany's Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) found that the stars at the centers of these clusters are rotating around a common axis.
Stars show how to look young when you're not  Dec 20, 1:11 pm
London, December 20(ANI): Relics of the early years of the Universe, with ages of typically 12-13 billion years (the Big Bang took place 13.7 billion years ago), there are roughly 150 globular clusters in the Milky Way and they contain many of our galaxy's oldest stars.
Hubble discovers ten billion-year old stellar dance  Jul 31, 6:08 pm
Washington, July 31(ANI): The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has provided a delightful view of the crowded stellar encampment called Messier 68, a spherical, star-filled region of space known as a globular cluster.
VISTA captures image of vast ball of stars encircling our galaxy  May 12, 2:13 pm
Washington, May 12 (ANI): About 160 globular clusters have been spotted encircling our galaxy, the Milky Way, mostly toward its bulging centre.
Universe's dark matter could be more mundane than thought  Jan 9, 3:19 pm
