----------------------------------------------------
In its first look at the Andromeda Galaxy, Europe's XMM satellite has
revealed several unusual X-ray sources, including a bright spot
created by an enormous X-ray nova outburst and one of the "coolest"
sources of the central region that appears to be a luminous white
dwarf.

GAMMA-RAY BURST REVEALS SECRETS OF HOST GALAXY
----------------------------------------------
Five years ago, astronomers knew almost nothing about gamma ray
bursts. Now, a team of observers has used a gamma-ray burst as a
powerful tool to unveil the nature of the galaxy in which it
occurred, more than 7 billion light-years away.

BRIGHTEST QUASARS INHABIT GALAXIES WITH STAR-FORMING GAS CLOUDS
---------------------------------------------------------------
A team of scientists at the California Institute of Technology and
the State University of New York at Stony Brook has found strong
evidence that high-luminosity quasar activity in galaxy nuclei is
linked to the presence of abundant interstellar gas and high rates of
star formation.
