Little galaxy?

THE SOMBRERO GALAXY  Galaxies are islands of stars in space. When a star is born, it creates stellar winds, ultraviolet radiation, and sends shock waves into space, giving shape to the galaxy around it. In the Sombrero Galaxy - located 28 million light years away in the constellation Virgo - star formation creates a dramatic red ring of warm dust around a central blue bulge.

How big is the universe?   This infographic, designed by Number Sleuth, visualizes the size of the universe and its contents by allowing you to scroll down from the very largest known objects to the smallest and compare their relative sizes. Each row in the graphic represents a “level” and the blue funnel represents you zooming from one level to the next, going from larger to smaller.

Vampire Stars More Common Than Scientists Once Believed - A surprising number of massive stars in our Milky Way galaxy are part of close stellar duos, a new study finds, but most of these companion stars have turbulent relationships — with one "vampire star" sucking gas from the other, or the two stars violently merging to form a single star.

Vampire stars are more common than astronomers previously thought according to a new study. Vampire stars are Type O stars in a binary system that suck gas from their companion stars to prolong their .

In this new view of the Andromeda galaxy from the Herschel space observatory, cool lanes of forming stars are revealed in the finest detail yet. Andromeda, also known as M31, is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way at a distance of 2.5 million light-years, making it an ideal natural laboratory to study star formation and galaxy evolution.
