Astronomers using Europe`s Herschel Space Observatory have discovered an extremely distant galaxy making stars more than 2000 times faster than our own Milky Way.
Scientists have proposed a new method for finding Earth-like planets in our Milky Way galaxy and they anticipate that their number may be up to a whopping 100 billion.
How spiral galaxies like our Milky Way get and maintain their characteristic arms has proved to be an enduring puzzle in astrophysics .
More than a billion stars in our galaxy can be seen together in detail for the first time in an image captured by astronomers.
Astronomers has taken an important step closer to finding the birth certificate of a star that`s been around for a very long time, thanks to NASA`s Hubble Space Telescope.
Astronomers have improved the measurement of the distance to our nearest neighboring galaxy and, in the process, refine an astronomical calculation that helps measure the expansion of the universe.
Astronomers using NASA`s Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered tantalising evidence for the possible existence of a shell of stars that are a relic of the Milky Way`s past cannibalism of other galaxies.
These stars support the idea that the Milky Way grew, in part, through the accretion of smaller galaxies.
Scientists have revealed that big news in the search for dark matter may be coming in about two weeks.
Astronomers have discovered six speedy stars, rocketing through space at up to 3.2 million kilometres per hour, which likely ejected from a giant black hole at the Milky Way`s heart.
Dung beetle - an insect with a tiny brain and minimal computing power - has become the first animal proven to use the Milky Way for orientation.
Astronomers have identified a new structure in the Milky Way - a long tendril of dust and gas that they are calling a "bone."
Researchers have captured new images of a ring of gas and dust seven light-years in diameter surrounding the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.

Results of a new research has altered the chronology of our solar system’s historical development.
Astronomers have accused the Large Magellanic Cloud – one of the closest galaxies to the Milky Way – of stealing stars from its neighbour.
An international team of astronomers has created a nine-gigapixel zoomable image of 84 million stars, using the UK-built VISTA infrared survey telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory.
