A new image taken with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope provides a detailed look at the tattered remains of a supernova explosion known as Cassiopeia A (Cas A). It is the youngest known remnant from a supernova explosion in the Milky Way. The new Hubble imag
NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a passing galaxy (not pictured) during a near-collision approximately 100 million years ago.

A team of astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope found an unambiguous link between the presence of supermassive black holes that power high-speed, radio-signal-emitting jets and the merger history of their host galaxies. Almost all galaxies with the
The observations of Eta Carinae's light echo are providing new insight into the behavior of powerful massive stars on the brink of detonation. Credit: NOAO, AURA, NSF, and N. Smith (University of Arizona)
Black Hole-Powered Jets Plow Into Galaxy : This composite image of a galaxy illustrates how the intense gravity of a supermassive black hole can be tapped to generate immense power. The image contains.
Wild Duck Cluster (Messier ~ Open cluster or galactic cluster, located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation of Scutum (The Shield). The Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile has take
The Jellyfish Nebula Lying in the constellation of Gemini, is a galactic supernova remnant, a star that could have exploded as many as years ago. Its globular appearance has earned the celestial structure the moniker the Jellyfish Nebula.
