Milky way galaxy News

New moon discovered in orbit around Neptune

The Hubble Telescope has discovered a previously-unknown moon in orbit around Neptune, according to an announcement Monday by NASA.

New black hole discovered in center of Milky Way galaxy

University Park - NASA announced that their Swift satellite recorded a rising tide of high-energy X-rays, revealing the existence of a previously unknown black hole near the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

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.

Milky Way kicks out 700 stars, discovered in intergalactic space

Youngstown - It seems our Milky Way galaxy doesn't want nearly 700 stars. A lot has to happen in order for a star to leave a galaxy, such as a meeting with a black hole. Scientists have discovered these rogue stars in intergalactic space.

Astronomers find hypervelocity planets hurtling out of our galaxy

Hanover - Imagine living on a planet that hurtles through the Milky Way galaxy 400 times faster than us. Think about what the night sky would look like as it becomes a gravitational slingshot. A new study shows that planets like this do exist.

Milky Way may have 100,000 times more nomad planets than stars

Stanford - A new study says our Milky Way galaxy may be populated by a host of nomad planets wandering homeless in space rather than staying in orbit around a star. According to the study, there may be 100,000 times more "nomad planets" in our galaxy than stars.

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.

Study discovers methods to find white dwarfs before they explode

In a Harvard press release, Tuesday, September 6, 2011, a research study by astrophysicist Rosanne Di Stefano has answered numerous questions about the exploding white dwarf stars that are spinning in space and their development into a Type 1a supernova.

Best image so far of ‘sister’ of the Milky Way captured by ESO

Santiago - Astronomers of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) captured a stunning image of spiral galaxy NGC 6744, located about 30 million light-years away in the southern constellation known as Pavo (The Peacock). NGC 6744 is very similar to our Milky Way.

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.

Black hole shoots out hot blue star, travels 1.6 million mph

Harvard - The Hubble Space Telescope has photographed one of the fastest stars ever recorded after the super hot blue star shot out of the Milky Way galaxy at 1.6 million mph (2.5 million kph) by a black hole.

The solar system takes 1 cosmic year lasting about 225-250 million years to orbit the Milky Way's galactic centre but during that time it oscillates above and below the galactic plane every 32 million years or so.
