The Univeristy of Tokyo has joined the Kavli family with the Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU).


Thanks to the presence of a natural "zoom lens" in space, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope got a uniquely close-up look at the brightest "magnified" galaxy yet discovered.


The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) at UC Santa Barbara has been awarded $2.5 million by the Simons Foundation to support the work of leading scientists on extended visits at the world-renowned research center.


Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have uncovered a cluster of galaxies in the initial stages of development. It is the most distant such grouping ever observed in the early universe.


New data helps astronomers understand the origin of cosmic rays and subatomic particles.


An international team of scientists has discovered that the supernova that exploded in August –– dubbed the supernova of a generation –– was a "white dwarf."


Analytical Pixels, is a new start-up company that emerged from a collaboration between Caltech’s Kavli Nanoscience Institute (KNI) and the Micro and Nanotechnologies Innovation Campus (Minatec).


An international team of scientists has found the fastest-rotating massive star ever recorded. The star spins around its axis at the speed of 600 kilometers per second at the equator, a rotational velocity so high that the star is nearly tearing apart due to centrifugal forces.


Simulations predict a larger number of small dwarf satellite galaxies around our Milky Way than are observed. Now work by KIPAC scientists has shown that this discrepancy is more universal.


With assistance from the Earth's magnetic field, the Fermi Gamma-ray Telescope confirms a cosmic excess of antimatter positrons, but not the spike expected if evidence of dark matter.
