For years, scientists have known that the Milky Way is a cannibalistic galaxy. Now, a team of astronomers from the University of Bologna discovered evidence that the neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is also a cosmic cannibal, meaning that it's no better than the Milky Way, a report by Science Alert explains.
The Hubble telescope has found that star formation happens in sudden bursts giving clues about the Universe's bumpy start.

Newswise — The Galaxy’s formation began with a rocky start. New images provide detailed information about the origins of the Universe’s first stars and structures. An international team of astronomers, including the University of Nottingham, Centro de Astrobiologia, CSIC-INTA, used data from the Hubble Satellite Telescope (HST), and the Gran Telescopio Canariass (GTC) to find and study the faintest galaxies within the universe. The galaxy’s formation was most likely to have been accidental. The journal Monthly Notes of the Royal Astronomical Society has published the first results.

New images have revealed detailed clues about how the first stars and structures were formed in the Universe and suggest the formation of the galaxy got off to a fitful start. An international team of astronomers from the University of Nottingham and Centro de Astrobiología (CAB, CSIC-INTA) used data from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC), the so-called Frontier Fields, to locate and study some of the smallest faintest galaxies in the nearby universe. This has revealed the formation of the galaxy was likely to be fitful. The first results have just been published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS).

Scientists believe they have evidence that the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf satellite galaxy of our larger Milky Way galaxy, ate an even smaller galaxy in the distant past. A team of Italian-Dutch researchers examined globular clusters – ancient spherical groupings of stars found in halos around galaxies – of the Large Magellanic Cloud. It found one of those globular clusters – NGC 2005 – had a different chemical composition than the others. They believe this cluster is the remains of a smaller galaxy that the Large Magellanic Cloud absorbed.
Astronomers have obtained new images of the smallest and faintest galaxies closest to Earth. They are very similar to those that were formed at the beginning of the development of the Universe. The authors of the new work – British and Spanish astronomers – during the study used information from...

One of the crew members that worked on the most iconic telescope of mankind, Hubble shares their knowledge. The velocity of light, the stars and star systems, the space and night sky, and more become a big phenomenon for the nascent mind. For example, people don’t know that one light-year...
New images of the smallest and faintest galaxies closest to us have allowed astronomers to reconstruct the scenario for the formation of the first stars and galactic structures in the early universe. The research results have been published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. One of...

Growing up under the clear night skies of the state of Georgia, in the south-east of the United States, I remember lying in the back of my dad’s pickup truck looking up at the constellations, and even from that very early age of nine or 10 there was just something so fundamental and wonderful about seeing the Moon and the stars that just clicked in me – it was so inspirational.
