Latest hot gas Stories
Galaxies are not as isolated as they at first glance may seem; on a cosmic scale they congregate in clumps along with dark matter and hot gas.
Astronomers have located one of the most powerful black holes ever discovered – a gravity-intense region of space that is located nearly four billion light years from Earth and has prevented trillions of stars from forming.
In the Coma cluster of galaxies, enormous arms of hot gas that span at least a half a million light years have been discovered. Scientists say these findings could provide insight into how the Coma cluster has grown to become one of the largest structures in the Universe held together by gravity.
Observations with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed a massive cloud of multimillion-degree gas in a galaxy about 60 million light years from Earth.
ESA’s Planck space telescope has made the first conclusive detection of a bridge of hot gas connecting a pair of galaxy clusters across 10 million light-years of intergalactic space.
An extremely hot, massive young galaxy cluster — the largest ever seen in the distant Universe — has been studied by an international team using ESO’s Very Large Telescope along with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Atacama Cosmology Telescope.
Like wine in a glass, vast clouds of hot gas are sloshing back and forth in Abell 2052, a galaxy cluster located about 480 million light years from Earth.
WASHINGTON, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The flow of hot gas toward a black hole has been clearly imaged for the first time in X-rays.
