Researchers are continuing to search for more flares in the GALEX data as well as in other data from such sources as the Kepler missions.
The presence of superhumps is diagnostic that GALEX J215818.5+241924 is a member of the SU UMa family of dwarf novae, making this the first confirmed superoutburst of the star.
After identifying several candidates with GALEX and studying them further with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, Heckman's team cast the sharp eye of the Hubble Space Telescope on some of the nearby galaxies, which reside I billion to 2 billion light-years from Earth.
The New Jersey decision is especially significant because it is the first high-level court opinion in the country to create an exception to the learned intermediary doctrine as it relates to so-called direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs, said Richard Galex, an East Brunswick, New Jersey, lawyer who represented the Perez plaintiffs.

Then Lea Hagen (Penn State) noticed something interesting in ultraviolet images taken with NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX): UGC 1382 actually has very extended spiral arms.

Other objects with star formation in their very outer disks (e.g., identified from GALEX observations) were selected to evaluate large-scale breaks in radial abundance gradients and to study chemical processes at the periphery of these disks [51].
Launched in spring 2003, GALEX provided scientists with information about how galaxies and stars are born as well as they evolve over time.
Research using the Subaru Telescope, the Canada-France-Hawaii-Telescope (CFHT), and NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) revealed unprecedented views of the star formation process in this intergalactic context and showed the promise of future investigations of a possibly new mode of star formation, unlike that within our Milky Way.
