Universe's early galaxies grew massive through collisions

It has long puzzled scientists that there were enormously massive galaxies that were already old and no longer forming new stars in the very early universe, approx. 3 billion years after the Big Bang.

Massive galaxy cluster verifies predictions of cosmological theory

By observing a high-speed component of a massive galaxy cluster, Caltech/JPL scientists and collaborators have detected for the first time in an individual object the kinetic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect, a change in the cosmic microwave background caused by its interaction with massive moving objects.

Qualcomm eyes massive Snapdragon speed (graphics) boost

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC is probably one of the most impressive high-end ARM-based processors.

A massive star factory in an early universe

The first galaxies were small, then eventually merged together to form the behemoths we see in the present universe.

Biggest-ever black holes found

Astronomers have discovered the two largest black holes ever - 10 billion times as massive as our own sun - which look set to consume everything within a region five times the size of our solar system.

Universe's first stars spun at 1m mph

The first stars in the universe may have spun at over a million miles per hour, astronomers at the Leibniz-Institut für Astrophysik Potsdam (AIP) and the Instituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF) say.

Massive black hole challenges conventional theories

Astronomers have been astonished to find a supermassive black hole in the center of a tiny low-mass galaxy, suggesting that such black holes can form before their host galaxies.

Microsoft shutters Massive in-game ad unit

As game publishers look to other forms of in-game revenue, Microsoft has closed the doors on a company it acquired to bring dynamic advertisements in video games.
