Hubble telescope photos reveal presence of 'zombie stars'

Scientists examining images recorded by NASA's Hubble telescope have discovered evidence of "zombie stars,' a star created by a little known form of supernova.

Astronomy first as cloudy weather revealed on alien world

Chicago - Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, a team of scientists, led by researchers in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago, have achieved an astronomical first.

Hubble telescope eyeballs star Proxima Centauri

NASA has released an image of Proxima Centauri taken with the joint NASA/European Space Agency Hubble Space Telescope showing the closest star to our solar system (apart from the Sun) shining brightly.

Former water world discovered in deep space

Warwick - Astrophysicists from the universities of Warwick and Cambridge in the UK have found evidence of what was once a water-rich rocky planet outside our solar system, by analysing the atmosphere of white dwarf star GD 61.

Op-Ed: Want a space burial and fiery descent? It’s cheap

Sydney - An ex-NASA guy has a way of getting you in to space where you belong. The problem is that you have to die first. Elysium Space has a $2,000 option which is both cheaper than a regular funeral and one hell of a way of making a statement.

Startling new images of Horsehead Nebula from Herschel and Hubble

Obtained from the European Space Agency’s Herschel Space Observatory and the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, spectacular new high resolution images were yesterday released of the Horsehead Nebula in the constellation Orion.

New 'Zombie Planet' images shock scientists

New images from the Hubble Space Telescope have captured a surprising development in the "zombie planet" orbiting the Fomalhaut star.

Hubble telescope captures images of 13-billion year-old galaxies

Following an announcement on Wednesday, NASA has released images of seven primitive galaxies they believe formed more than 13 billion years ago.

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.

In Photos: 22 years of spectacular Hubble Space Telescope images

Washington - On April 24, 1990, 8:33:51 am EST, the historic Hubble Space Telescope was launched into orbit by Space Shuttle Discovery. The 2.4 metre (7.9 feet) telescope is now 22 years old and what better way to celebrate then to look back at its stunning images.

ESA telescopes capture new images of Hubble 'Pillars of Creation'

Two of the European Space Agency's (ESA) orbiting observatories have captured new and spectacular views of the gas pillars in the Eagle Nebula (M16) that were the subject of the iconic 1995 Hubble images dubbed "Pillars of Creation."

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.

Hubble captures bubble-blowing galaxy

New NASA/ESA Hubble space telescope images of Holmberg II, a dwarf irregular galaxy, have revealed its blurry boundaries have been pocked by giant bubbles of glowing gas, where star-birth blew away dust and gas, and supernova shocks cleared out cavities.

Study: Supermassive black holes grow in small, distant galaxies

Los Angeles - Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope are surprised after they discovered supermassive black holes growing in small, distant galaxies. This has led scientists to ask: what came first? The massive galaxy or supermassive black holes?

Hubble Space Telescope discovers 'dead galaxies' forming stars

Detroit - Scientists concluded as late as 2005 that elliptical galaxies were filled with evolved stars that were billions of years old. However, university astronomers have found out that these "dead galaxies" are still creating new stars.

'Citizen Scientists' writing the history of the universe

Scientists of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have created what they've metaphorically depicted as a universe of astronomy enthusiasts to relieve them from an overwhelming task - identifying events occuring in the actual universe.

Giant ultraviolet rings suggest 'resurrected galaxies'

Astronomers have found mysterious, giant loops of ultraviolet light in aged, massive galaxies. These galaxies seem to have a "second lease on life" because somehow they have been infused with fresh gas to form new stars that power these gargantuan rings.

This shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.

This color picture is assembled from a series of images taken when Jupiter was at a distance of 519 million miles (961 million kilometers) from Earth. These images are part of a set of data obtained by a Hubble Space Telescope (HST) team headed by Reta Beebe of New Mexico State University in 1995.

Left is an image of the nearby spiral Andromeda galaxy: The rectangle highlights the 7,900 light-years-wide region probed by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope near the galaxy's hub; there a grouping of stars shows as a bright area, and the blue dots sprinkled throughout are extremely hot ultra-blue stars.
