An unusual galaxy is set to prompt a rethink on how structures in the Universe form.
The inner workings of young stars have been identified by an international team of researchers including a UNSW Sydney physicist.
Big galaxies get bigger by merging with smaller ones, modelling has shown.
An international team of researchers has revealed the mechanisms behind fish schooling – and what they found differs from what scientists had previously thought.
At only 1 per cent the age of the Sun, the DS Tuc binary system shows us how a planet might naturally develop before its orbit is disturbed by external forces.
Astronomers have spotted something they weren't expecting – a star that has been travelling at 6 million kilometres an hour for 5 million years.
A group of physicists at UNSW Sydney have built a super-fast version of the central building block of a quantum computer. The research is the milestone result of a vision first outlined by scientists 20 years ago.
Professor Susan Coppersmith from the University of Wisconsin- Madison will join UNSW next year to work with experimental scientists on problems ranging from quantum computing to new materials.
We humans are capable of vocalising many different words in a range of languages. But what is it that gives us a remakable and variable voice, asks Noel Hanna.
The temperature can get below minus 93 degrees on an Antarctic ridge near Dome A, where UNSW scientists operate an astronomical observatory, writes Michael Ashley.
