Latest Cosmic Evolution Survey Stories
When astronomers peer into the deepest regions of the cosmos they are not seeing the Universe as it exists today, but rather how it looked billions of years ago.
Thanks to new data obtained from the Hubble Cosmological Evolution Survey, researchers have solved the mystery as to why some galaxies appear to grow larger even after they no longer form new stars.
Australian astronomers are expecting two sky surveys will be on par to discover some 700,000 new galaxies in 2013.
The intimate details of 100 galaxies in the local universe have been published by the Calar Alto Legacy Integral Field Area survey (CALIFA).
A team of astronomers from the UK, Canada and the Netherlands have commenced a revolutionary new study of cosmic star-formation history, looking back in time to when the universe was still in its lively and somewhat unruly youth!
ESO's VISTA telescope has created the widest deep view of the sky ever made using infrared light. This new picture of an unremarkable patch of sky comes from the UltraVISTA survey and reveals more than 200 000 galaxies.
A UC Davis graduate student who is leading a study of the collision of galaxy clusters 5 billion light years away discussed the team’s findings today, Jan. 10, in a press briefing at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Austin, Texas.
Most of the huge black holes in the centers of galaxies in the past 11 billion years were not turned on by mergers between galaxies, as had been previously thought.
A group of astronomers, led by Tim Schrabback of the Leiden Observatory, conducted an intensive study of over 446 000 galaxies within the COSMOS field, the result of the largest survey ever conducted with Hubble.
The Hubble Space Telescope will devote an unprecedented amount of time over the next few years to documenting galaxy evolution in the early universe and to studying whether distant supernovae can be extremely reliable measures of distance across vast regions of the cosmos.
