NRAO has joined DAPPER: a new NASA space mission to the far side of the Moon to investigate when the first stars began to form in the early universe.
Using the VLBA, astronomers have made the first direct geometric measurement of the distance to a magnetar. This precision measurement to one of the most magnetic objects in the Universe could help scientists determine if such objects are responsible for generating the mysterious Fast Radio Bursts.
Using ALMA, two teams of astronomers have for the first time discovered a planet-forming disk with misaligned rings around a triple star system, called GW Orionis.
VLBA image shows details of a young jet emitted from the core of an active galaxy, revealing that the jet activity stopped, then restarted only a decade ago.
Fifty years ago, astronomers discovered carbon monoxide in space. It allowed us to see dark regions of the universe, and helped us understand it more clearly.
Join Melissa Hoffman of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory as she explains how astronomers are using new observations to answer a cosmic mystery.
