In today’s paper, astronomers show how massive collisions have shaped some of the properties of galaxies over time, giving insight into the formation of our own Milky Way.
For the first time, IceCube has observed neutrinos coming from our own Milky Way galaxy!
In today’s paper, the authors describe and attempt a method to trace the evolution of our galaxy by comparing the ratio of oxygen isotopes in different regions of the Milky Way!
There’s a cluster of stars near the Milky Way’s center whose distribution and age puzzles scientists. Could an intermediate-mass black hole be the light that reveals the mystery?
For the past decade, ESA’s Gaia mission has helped reshape astronomy in more ways than you can probably think of. You can hear more about Gaia in Prof. Anthony Brown’s plenary talk at #AAS241!
Some of the smallest galaxies we know of live right next door to the Milky Way — but we’ve only just found them!
