Indian astronomers discover 'Saraswati'- an extremely large supercluster of galaxies

An extremely large supercluster of galaxies which is as big as 20 million billion suns has been discovered by a team of Indian Astronomers from Pune-based Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA).

Why some galaxies stop creating stars

Scientists may finally have an explanation for why some galaxies stop creating stars after a team of astrophysicists painstakingly analysed around 70,000 galaxies to understand the forces influencing star formation activity in them.
