Lying more than 110 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) is the spiral galaxy IC 2560, shown here in an image from NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
Using CAT scans, Idaho State University researchers have made 3D virtual reconstructions of the jaws of the ancient spiral-toothed fish Helicoprion.
Much like locating a silver needle in the haystack of space, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope recently produced this beautiful image below of the spiral galaxy IC 2233, one of the flattest galaxies ever observed by astronomers.
A completely unexpected spiral structure observed around an ancient star could offer a glimpse of what our own sun has in store.
Astrophysicists have for the first time created a computer model of galaxy formation that results in a spiral galaxy like our own.
