Latest Hubble Deep Field Stories
Astronomers have discovered seven primitive galaxies that formed more than 13 billion years ago, during the Universe's infancy.
What you see in the beautiful images from the Hubble Space Telescope (and other instruments) is not what you would see with your own eyes.
Contrary to expectations, researchers at the University of Texas at Austin have found that even at a very early epoch, a lot of dust was present in massive galaxies in the form of grains of carbon and silicon, or heavy metals.
Researchers using the Hubble Telescope have assembled a new and improved portrait of our deepest-ever view of the Universe.
Dark galaxies may have been spotted for the very first time using the European Space Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT).
For the first time, the general public will be able to browse detailed infrared images of more than 200 galaxies. The pictures, originating from data from the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope, will be released later this year.
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!
A team of astronomers at Jodrell Bank Observatory have begun the deepest ever high-resolution radio imaging of the region around the Hubble Deep Field (HDF), the images originally captured by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in the mid 1990s.
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.
