First `sibling` of Sun discovered

Researchers have identified the first "sibling" of the Sun - a star that was almost certainly born from the same cloud of gas and dust as our star.

Little gas cloud`s fate could reveal much about growth of black holes

Researchers have said that the gas cloud that`s edging closer to the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy could reveal much about these entities.

Gas cloud where stars are born spotted

A team of researchers, using a telescope installed at the driest place on Earth - Ridge A in Antarctica - have identified a giant gas cloud that appears to be in an early stage of formation.

Gas cloud set to collide with supermassive black hole at Milky Way`s core

Astronomers have discovered that a mysterious gas cloud about three times the mass of Earth is spiraling towards the supermassive black hole at the Milky Way`s core.

Gas cloud being `stretched like spaghetti` as it swings past black hole

Recent observations of the galactic center have revealed that parts of the in-falling gas cloud, which was detected in 2011, have already swung past the black hole at the heart of our Milky Way.

Enormous gas cloud seen around colliding galaxies

The Chandra X-ray Observatory has helped scientists to make a detailed study of an enormous cloud of hot gas enveloping two large, colliding galaxies.

New technique uses gas cloud to `weigh` black hole

Scientists have developed a new technique of measuring the mass of supermassive black holes which they say could revolutionise our understanding of how they form and help to shape galaxies.
