Did Star Formation Regulation Change as the Universe Evolve? May 11, 2016

An international team led by scientists at the Subaru Telescope and ETH Zurich in Switzerland used the W. M. Keck Observatory and discovered that the old galaxies form stars very differently than new galaxies, raising new questions about star-forming theory.

New Test by Deepest Galaxy Map Finds Einstein's Theory Stands True May 10, 2016

By using Fiber Multi-Object Spectrograph on the Subaru Telescope, an international team led by Japanese researchers has made a 3D map of 3000 galaxies 13 billion light years from Earth, and found that Einstein's general theory of relativity is still valid.

Deciphering Compact Galaxies in the Young Universe March 7, 2016

Based on the extensive observations using the Subaru Telescope, an international team of researchers found that small galactic clumps in the young universe (1.2 billion years after the Big Bang) are growing into large galaxies through mergers, causing active star formation as a result.

Subaru-HiCIAO Spots Young Stars Surreptitiously Gluttonizing Their Birth Clouds
Subaru-HiCIAO Spots Young Stars Surreptitiously Gluttonizing Their Birth Clouds February 24, 2016

By using HiCIAO on the Subaru Telescope, an international team revealed dramatic moments in star and planet formation. Infant stars are caught in action of gulping materials from its feeder disk, traced by messy and chaotic structures in the infrared observations.

New Fast Radio Burst Discovery Finds 'Missing Matter' in the Universe
New Fast Radio Burst discovery finds 'missing matter' in the Universe February 24, 2016

International team of scientists identified, for the first time, an elliptical galaxy where fast radio burst occurred. They were able to determine the distance to the galaxy and prove that this burst is at the cosmological distance. With this discovery, the team was able to solve the missing matter problem.
