Andromeda galaxy News

NASA’s Chandra spots dozens of black holes in neighboring galaxy

New research conducted using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory confirms what scientists have long suspected—that the unusual amount of X-ray sources emanating from the center of the Andromeda galaxy are the signatures of dozens of black holes.

NASA: Andromeda, Milky Way galaxies set to make cosmic collision

Washington - After researching numerous observations from the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have concluded that the Andromeda galaxy, our neighbour in the pool of galaxies, is on a collision course with our Milky Way.

The universe as viewed from the Herschel telescope

Incredible images of the universe taken by the Herschel telescope have been published online by the European Space Agency with a new image of the Eagle Galaxy just released

NASA finds new ultra-blue stars

The Hubble Space Telescope has revealed a large group of unusual hot, bright, ultra-blue stars glowing in the heart of Andromeda, the second closest galaxy to the Milky Way, NASA announced.

New study says Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies in midlife crisis

Melbourne - A new study shows that the Milky Way galaxy and the Andromeda galaxy are going through midlife crisis. They are moving away from stage of active star formation into one in which star formation slows down and the galaxy becomes relatively stagnant.

Astronomers compile a cosmic collision atlas

Astronomers predict our Milky Way Galaxy will collide with the Andromeda Galaxy five billion years from now in a mind-boggling disaster that will destroy and unite the two, creating an immense gassy star-birth cloud. But they seek a better bigger picture.

Andromeda Galaxy is Not Just a TV Show....SciFi Meets Reality

Andromeda is moving fast! Well in terms of science, not people years. Within 5 billion years it will be colliding with the Milky Way. Of course by then the Sun will be a white dwarf so it won't matter much to the Earth.
