Astronomers have found a massive galaxy cluster that’s making stars at a record pace.
Astronomers say the Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies will collide in four billion years.
The Milky Way galaxy is bigger, heavier, and faster-spinning than researchers once thought.
We'll talk with one of the scientists behind a project that used a radio telescope to peer back millions of years in time and make observations of the magnetic field present in a distant proto-galaxy.
Astronomers have captured an image of a jet of radiation leaving a black hole at the center of one galaxy to strike the edge of neighboring galaxy.

Could a stash of ancient bones be the work of a giant cephalopod?
In less than a second, cephalopods can change the color, pattern and shape of th...

\tWith its heavy outer shell, weak vision, and primitive brain, the nautilus lacks much of the excitement of the more flashy and cunning cephalopods. Yet a series of experiments by evolutionary biologists Dr. Jennifer Basil and Robyn Crook involving fish juice, blue lights, and mazes dispels the notion that this ancient species is incapable of basic learning and throws into question the origins of cephalopods' intellectual prowess.
