Celestial fireworks: Hubble observes firestorm of new star formation in an old galaxy

Celestial fireworks: Hubble observes firestorm of new star formation in an old galaxy The infusion of gas into a young galaxy could cause it to become lopsided as star formation picked up faster on one end.Researchers from Vassar College used Hubble’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 3 to observe and analyze some of the few nearby tadpole galaxies like Kiso 5639 in order to confirm this accretion-induced star formation.

Hubble uses gravitational lens to look back at the early universe

Hubble uses gravitational lens to look back at the early universe Those galaxies are from the very early universe, just a billion or so years after the big bang.This creates a natural lens, through which Hubble can look to get a clearer view of objects on the other side.

Oxford scientists call into question the idea that the universe’s expansion is accelerating

Oxford scientists call into question the idea that the universe’s expansion is accelerating Type Ia supernovae are affectionately called “standard candles” in astronomy.When the Oxford team did their own analysis of the universe’s expansion scenarios, their best-case, most-certain outcome was much less confident that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate.

Oxford scientists call into question the idea that the universe's expansion is accelerating

Oxford scientists call into question the idea that the universe's expansion is accelerating When the Oxford team did their own analysis of the universe’s expansion scenarios, their best-case, most-certain outcome was much less confident that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate.Instead, the data “lends itself” to the conclusion that the rate of expansion is constant.
