Astronomers Discover that all Galaxies Spin the Same

Recently, astronomers have discovered that no matter how big, all galaxies rotate once every billion years. Researchers think this is weird. Lead researcher Gerhardt Meurer said the discovery was “kind of weird.” “I just thought that’s kind of odd, small galaxies and big galaxies all orbiting at the same...

Extremely Massive Galaxies at the Universe’s Infancy

At the universe’s infancy, two dwarf-galaxies formed and were speeding towards each other. Thus, confronting one another and assembling into a large galaxy. Based on current theories, in the universe’s infancy galaxies were tiny. So, they needed to merge with each other to form larger ones that we see today....

The Farthest Monster Black Hole Discovered

Looking at this monster black hole means you are looking at the dawn of creation. Its light takes 13 billion years to reach Earth. Researchers have discovered the oldest supermassive black hole ever found. It formed just 690 million years after the Big Bang, meaning the universe was just 5% of its current age. This was a...

Our Home Supercluster – Laniakea (VIDEO)

We live in a cosmic web. Galaxies gather in clusters and along filaments and large regions referred to as voids, separate them. Laniakea is our home supercluster. The Sun lives in what’s called the Orion arm in our spiral-armed Milky Way galaxy. Our galaxy is part of a collection of a few dozen galaxies called the Local...

Hubble Discovers A Dead Galaxy That Was Wasted A Long Time Ago

This new, discovered dead galaxy stopped making new stars just a few billion years after the big bang. This Dead galaxy was not so easy to be found. That’s because objects in the distant universe appear small and difficult to see. So, astronomers need to see them through a cosmic magnifying glass. Using the Hubble Space...

This Is How Earth And The Solar System Are Moving Through Space

We live in our lovely home, Earth, which spins on its axis and revolves around the Sun. Our star orbits in an ellipse around the center of the Milky Way and everything is moving through space. The Milky Way is on a collision course with another galaxy. Our galaxy is being pulled towards the Andromeda within our local group. The...

Earth And Its Parent Galaxy Live In A Cosmic Void

According to a study, we live in a cosmic void, which is a region of space largely devoid of other galaxies, stars, and planets. If our universe were a sponge, the milky way would dwell in one of the spongy holes. These cosmic voids are part of the large-scale structure of the universe. Once scientists thought that Earth was...

What is Dark Energy?

Dark energy is an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of the space. It tends to accelerate the expansion of the universe. So, we basically don’t really know what is it. In 1929, American astronomer Edwin Hubble studied exploding stars known as supernovae to determine that the universe is...

What Exactly Are Black Holes And How Strong Are They

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can’t get out. That’s because the matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special...

Giant Clouds of Space Alcohol Floating in the Deepness

Ten thousand light years from earth, a massive cloud of space alcohol was found. Astronomers have found vast quantities of pure alcohol in an interstellar cloud some 10,000 light years from Earth. This breakthrough occurred in 1995 when researchers at Ohio State University collected data for astronomers. Thus, making this...
