The Hubble Ultra Deep Field image of a small area of space in the constellation Fornax contains about 5,500 galaxies.
When the Dark Energy Camera (DECam) opened its giant eye last week more than 120 members of the DES eagerly awaited the first snapshots.
Scientists in the international Dark Energy Survey collaboration announced this week that the Dark Energy Camera has achieved first light.
New data finds the period when the first stars and galaxies formed was shorter than theorists speculated — and that it ended early.
As vast as the Milky Way may seem, our sprawling galaxy is but a speck next to the largest structures in the universe: galaxy clusters
Astronomers have found an extraordinary galaxy cluster -- one of the largest objects in the Universe -- that is breaking several important cosmic records.

The new finding supports a clumpy 3D scenario of supernovae explosions rather than the widely accepted bipolar explosion scenario. It advances our understanding of how supernovae explode, a process that has been a persistent mystery.
Meyer received a share of his second Gruber Cosmology Prize for his work as a member of the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe.
Exoplanetary system, 10,000 light years away, has regularly aligned orbits similar to those in our solar system.
