NRAO is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 Jansky Fellowships.
New data from ALMA and other telescopes reveal stunning web of filaments in the Orion Nebula.
ALMA data reveal that a powerful stellar flare erupted from Proxima Centauri last March. This space weather may make that system rather inhospitable to life after all.
NRAO’s National and International Non-Traditional Exchange (NINE) Program has collaborated with the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO) to launch a pilot initiative titled Multi-wavelength Astronomy Public Participation Program (MAPPP).
Using new funding from the National Science Foundation, NRAO has contracted with a firm to design and build an integrated circuit that implements an NRAO-developed technique to greatly improve the efficiency of data transmission for a next-generation radio telescope.
Astronomers using ALMA have conclusively detected the largest, most complex molecules ever observed outside the Milky Way.
The ALMA Board approved the development of a new spectrometer for the Morita Array designed and developed by Japan for the ALMA telescope.
Astronomers using the GBT have made the first definitive interstellar detection of benzonitrile, an intriguing organic molecule.
Astronomers have looked back to a time soon after the Big Bang, and have discovered swirling gas in some of the earliest galaxies to have formed in the Universe. These ‘newborns’ – observed as they appeared nearly 13 billion years ago – spun like a whirlpool, similar to our own Milky Way.
VLA observations have pointed to the most likely explanation for the phenomena that followed the violent collision of a pair of neutron stars in a galaxy 130 million light-years from Earth.
