Farthest Galaxy Detected

Caltech researchers have reported the detection of the farthest object yet, galaxy EGS8p7. At more than 13.2 billion years old, it provides a fascinating glimpse of the very early universe, just 600,000 years after the Big Bang.

Stars in Our Galaxy Move Far From Home - SDSS-III

Stars in Our Galaxy Move Far From Home When it comes to our galaxy, home is where the star is. Scientists with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) have created a new map of the Milky Way and determined that 30 percent of stars have dramatically changed their orbits. IMAGE: Two pairs of stars are shown over an image of our Galaxy. Lines trace the path of each star as one member of each pair moves to a new orbit.

Gliese 581g: This rocky world was announced in September 2010. Gliese 581g, which is located just 20 light years away, is likely two to three times as massive as Earth and revolves around its parent star every 30+ days. This orbit places the planet squarely in the goldilock zone - that is the range of distances where liquid water and perhaps life as we know it, could exist. Gliese 667Cc: Gliese 667Cc, which was discovered in Februrary 2012 by the same team that spotted Gliese 581g, orbits a…
