|The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as M104 or NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero. The galaxy has an apparent magnitude of 9.0, making it a galaxy that can easily be seen with amateur...||01/11/2009||2,019|
|Hoag's Object is a non-typical galaxy of the type known as a ring galaxy. The appearance of this object has interested amateur astronomers as much as its uncommon structure has fascinated professionals. The galaxy was discovered in 1950 by astronomer Arthur Allen Hoag who identified it as either a planetary nebula or a peculiar galaxy.|

|Lockheed Martin recently began modifying a Northrop Grumman-owned BAC 1-11 aircraft to prepare it for the Joint Strike Flight (JSF) flight test program in which it will serve as a flying test bed for prototype multisensor JSF avionics. Integrating the avionics systems on a flying test bed will reduce the need for sensor flights during the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the p...||09/26/2007||753|

|The Hubble telescope has snapped this remarkable view of a perfectly "edge-on" galaxy, NGC 4013. This new Hubble picture reveals with exquisite detail huge clouds of dust and gas extending along, as well as far above, the galaxy's main disk. NGC 4013 is a spiral galaxy, similar to our Milky Way, lying some 55 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Ursa Ma...||01/10/2009||1,314|
|Scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have measured the age of what may be the youngest galaxy ever seen in the universe. By cosmological standards it is a mere toddler seemingly out of place among the grown-up galaxies around it. Called I Zwicky 18, it may be as young as 500 million years old (so recent an epoch that complex life had already begun to appear on Earth). Our Milky Way ga...||01/10/2009||522|
