Smaller satellite galaxies caught by a spiral galaxy are distorted into elongated structures consisting of stars, which are known as tidal streams, as shown in this artist's impression. The new survey has, for the first time, shown the presence of such tell-tale traces of spiral galaxies swallowing smaller satellites for galaxies more distant than our own “Local Group” of galaxies.

NASAs Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way. The feature spans 50,000 light-years (roughly half of the Milky Way’s diameter) and may be the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy. The structure spans more than half of the visible sky, from the constellation Virgo to the constellation Grus, and it may be millions of years old.

Are galaxies different from each other?

A colorful collection of galaxy specimens from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer mission showcases galaxies of several types, from elegant grand design spirals to more patchy flocculent spirals.

In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "universe-in-mass black hole"

The Tadpole Galaxy

The Tadpole Galaxy is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located 400 mly from Earth toward the northern constellation Draco. It's most dramatic features are a trail of stars about ly long & massive star clusters. It is thought that a more compact gal

ALMA discovers large 'hot' cocoon around a small baby star

A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…
