New Milky Way Neighbor
Astronomers using a database of some 48 million stars have discovered a faint but huge stellar structure positioned almost directly above the Milky Way's disk. The most likely interpretation, researchers say, is that this is a dwarf galaxy merging with our own - Astronomy
Vega Mystery Solved; Red Dwarf Mystery Grows
Astronomers have finally figured out the long-standing mystery of why Vega, the fifth-brightest star in the night sky, is brighter than it ought to be - Sky and Telescope
Monster Black Holes Grow After Galactic Mergers
An analysis of the Hubble Space Telescope's deepest view of the universe offers compelling evidence that monster black holes in the centers of galaxies were not born big but grew over time through repeated galactic mergers - Space Telescope Science Institute
NASA's Spitzer Finds Possible Comet Dust Around Dead Star
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope spotted what may be comet dust sprinkled around the white dwarf star G29-38 that died approximately 500 million years ago - NASA
More Evidence That Black Holes Are For Real
A team of astronomers announced Monday compelling new evidence that black holes exist in nature, and are not just the concoction of theorists and science-fiction writers with overactive imaginations - Sky and Telescope
NASA's Chandra Finds Black Holes Stirring Up Galaxies
Black holes are creating havoc in unsuspected places, according to a new study of images of elliptical galaxies made by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. The discovery of far-reaching explosive activity, due to giant central black holes in these old galaxies, was a surprise to astronomers - NASA
Searching For Interstellar Dust
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have launched Stardust@home to enlist amateur astronomers in the hunt for specks of interstellar dust captured by NASA's Stardust spacecraft - Astronomy
