Join Melissa Hoffman of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory as she explains how astronomers are using new observations to answer a cosmic mystery.
Precision measurements made with the VLBA have revealed that a small, cool star 35 light-years from Earth is orbited by a Saturn-sized planet once every 221 days.
Planet-forming environments can be much more complex and chaotic than previously expected. This is evidenced by a new image of the star RU Lup, made with ALMA.
Based on ALMA observations and a theoretical follow-up study, scientists suggest that a neutron star might be hiding deep inside the remains of Supernova 1987A.
NRAO astronomer Paul B. Demorest has been selected to give the Fred Kavli Plenary Lecture at the 237th meeting of the American Astronomical Society, to be held virtually, on 11 January 2021.
To help celebrate the VLA’s 40th anniversary, the National Radio Astronomy is conducting an image contest, and offering cash prizes for visually compelling works that incorporate radio observational data from the VLA.
