Astronomers have released a huge survey of the galactic plane of the Milky Way. The new dataset contains a staggering 3.32 billion celestial objects, arguably the largest such catalogue so far. The data for this unprecedented survey was taken with the Dark Energy Camera, built by the US Depa

An international team of researchers including the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) has studied the relation between galaxy size and luminosity of some of the earliest galaxies in the universe taken by the brand-new James Webb Space Telescope (JWST

NGC 346, one of the most dynamic star-forming regions in nearby galaxies, is full of mystery. Now, it is less mysterious with new findings from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope.

Astronomers have discovered more than 200 distant variable stars known as RR Lyrae stars in the Milky Way's stellar halo. The most distant of these stars is more than a million light-years from Earth, almost half the distance to our neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda, which is about 2.5 million
New data from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) have revealed that the structures of galaxies in the early universe were much more diverse and mature than previously known. Scientists compared images of hundreds of galaxies taken by JWST for the Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science (CE

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) reveal for the first time galaxies with stellar bars, elongated features of stars stretching from the centers of galaxies into their outer disks, at a time when the universe was a mere 25% of its present age. The finding of so-called barred galaxies,
Large gamma-ray emitting bubbles around the center of our Galaxy were produced by fast-blowing outward winds and the associated "reverse shock," suggests a scientist from Tokyo Metropolitan University.

Washington [US], December 17 (ANI): Scientists analyzed new measurements showing that the light emitted by stars outside our galaxy is two to three times brighter than the light from known populations of galaxies, challenging assumptions about the number and environment of stars in the unive
VLA teams up with Juno spacecraft to study Jupiter's atmosphere, and ALMA reveals new details about Io's volcanoes.
How are galaxies born, and what holds them together? Astronomers assume that dark matter plays an essential role. However, as yet it has not been possible to prove directly that dark matter exists. A research team including Technical University of Munich (TUM) scientists has now measured for
