New observations by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) provide a close look at a galaxy that may be in the process of shutting down its star formation.
A new study validates Einstein’s theory of general relativity in a distant galaxy for the first time. This study supports our current understanding of gravity and provides more evidence for the existence of dark matter and dark energy — two mysterious concepts that scientists know about only indirectly by observing their effects on cosmic objects.

This map of the universe spans more than 500 million light-years and contains more than 100,000 galaxies.
We present with outstanding detail an extragalactic perspective of an extended stellar tidal stream wrapping around the edge-on, spiral galaxy NGC 5907.
Astronomers have used NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes to show that a recently-discovered galaxy is undergoing an extraordinary boom of stellar construction.
The Parkes Observatory in Australia had detected the blip of radio waves, and everyone is trying to figure out what this signal could mean.
This latest series of experiments in Calgary tested quantum teleportation in actual infrastructure, representing a major step forward for the technology.
Each dot in this image is an entire galaxy. Each galaxy contains up to 1 trillion stars.
Each star may have a system of orbiting planets. There are over 10,000 galaxies in this photo alone.
At the center of a galaxy cluster, 1 billion light years from Earth, a voracious, supermassive black hole is preparing for a chilly feast.
