Recently, the infrared Herschel Space Observatory, has taken a series of beautiful high-resolution infrared images of Andromeda. It is the first time we can see M31, at these wavelengths, at such a high resolution.

When galaxies grow too massive to continue making their own stars, they begin cannibalizing other nearby galaxies, experts from the University of Western Australia and an international team of colleagues reported this week in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

An international team of astronomers studying the satellite galaxies surrounding Andromeda has for the first time observed the remnant of a merger between two low-mass dwarf galaxies, according to new research published online Sunday in the journal Nature.

ESA Releases Hubble Image Of Messier 83, A Galaxy With Two Hearts
2014-01-10 06:45:29

The Hubble Space Telescope has revealed a new image of the galaxy Messier 83, which has hosted a large number of supernova explosions and is believed to have a double nucleus at its core.

Study Of Massive Stars Shows Milky Way's Missing Arms

Ring Galaxy -- A subclass of interacting galaxies, ring galaxies, provides a unique laboratory for studying unusually large bursts of non-nuclear star formation. The rings in these systems are often large (10s of kiloparsecs) and contain what appear to be associations of giant H{\small II} regions. As a basis for future modeling of star forming regions in observed ring galaxies we present a series of combined n-body/gas numerical experiments on ring formation and evolution. Three...

Cartwheel Galaxy -- Located 500 million light-years away in the constellation Sculptor, the Cartwheel Galaxy looks like a wagon wheel. The galaxy's nucleus is the bright object in the center of the image; the spoke-like structures are wisps of material connecting the nucleus to the outer ring of young stars. This close-up image of the galaxy's nucleus reveals the comet-like knots of gas. These knots are mostly confined to the core's left side and appear as white streaks inside the blue...

Andromeda Galaxy -- The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M31, or the object 31 on the catalog of Messier, is the other giant spiral galaxy in the Local Group, together with our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is at a distance of approximately 2.36 million light years or 725 kpc, in the direction of the constellation Andromeda, and it will probably merge in the future with our galaxy, to form a giant elliptical. With a mass of about 1.5 times more than the Milky Way, it is the dominant galaxy...

bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
