Latest Baby Boom Galaxy Stories
A new survey of galaxies by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope is taking a plunge into the deep and uncharted waters of our cosmos.
An international team of researchers announced it has found some of the universe’s earliest starburst galaxies, essentially young energetic clusters of cosmic gas and dust that form stars at an alarming rate.
The faint, lumpy glow given off by the very first objects in the universe may have been detected with the best precision yet, using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. These faint objects might be wildly massive stars or voracious black holes.
Astronomers have found the strongest link ever between the most powerful bursts of star formation in the Universe, and the most massive galaxies found today.
Those aren't insects trapped in a spider's web -- they're stars in our own Milky Way galaxy, lying between us and another spiral galaxy called IC 342.
WASHINGTON, June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Galaxies once thought of as voracious tigers are more like grazing cows, according to a new study using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

Astronomers are a bit like archeologists as they dig back through space and time searching for remnants of the early universe.
Astronomers have at last uncovered newborn stars at the frenzied center of our Milky Way galaxy.
Astronomers have uncovered an extreme stellar machine -- a galaxy in the very remote universe pumping out stars at a surprising rate of up to 4,000 per year. In comparison, our own Milky Way galaxy turns out an average of just 10 stars per year.
