Astronomers from the University of Colorado Boulder believe that so-called sideline quasars located on the outer fringes of a larger, brighter active galactic nucleus might have joined forces with it to prevent the formation of small galaxies billions of years ago.
Researchers have discovered direct, empirical evidence of the existence of gas flows that are consumed by galaxies as fuel.
New observations by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have found a planet that is secretly being consumed by its own star.
