Latest Dwarf spheroidal galaxy Stories
The Coma Cluster, a massive grouping of galaxies located 300 million light-years from Earth, is home to a group of 47 galaxies that are rich in dark matter and may be so-called ‘failed’ galaxies, researchers from Yale University report in a new study.
Don’t look now, Milky Way, but it appears that there’s a new dwarf galaxy in the neighborhood.
Researchers have used MOND theory to closely predict a key property measured in faint dwarf satellite galaxies of the nearby giant spiral galaxy Andromeda.
There's more to the cosmos than meets the eye. About 80 percent of the matter in the universe is invisible to telescopes, yet its gravitational influence is manifest in the orbital speeds of stars around galaxies and in the motions of clusters of galaxies.
Like all galaxies, our Milky Way is home to a strange substance called dark matter. Dark matter is invisible, betraying its presence only through its gravitational pull.
OSU's Kazantzidis studies the behavior of galaxies, black holes through modeling & simulation at the Ohio Supercomputer Center.
A study published this week in the journal Nature offers an explanation for the origin of dwarf spheroidal galaxies.
Ghostly galaxies composed almost entirely of dark matter speckle the universe. Unlike normal galaxies, these extreme systems contain very few stars and are almost devoid of gas.
A team of French and Italian astronomers have shown the strong influence the environment exerts on the way galaxies form and evolve.
The Local Group, compromising more than 30 galaxies (including dwarf galaxies and the Milky Way), is a group of galaxies with a gravitational center located somewhere between the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. With a binary (dumbbell) shape and a total mass of (1.29 Â± 0.14) Ã— 1012M the Local group covers a 10 million light-year diameter. The local group is part of the Virgo Supercluster. The two largest galaxies in the group are the Milky Way and the Andromeda both Spiral...
