Deep inside the remains of an exploded star lies a twisted knot of newly minted molecules and dust. Using ALMA, astronomers mapped the location of these new molecules to create a high-resolution 3-D image of this “dust factory,” providing new insights into the relationship between a young supernova remnant and its galaxy.
The ALMA Board selects Dr. Sean Dougherty as the new ALMA Director for a 5-year term beginning April 2018.
Radio astronomer Bernie Fanaroff Adds 52nd Jansky Lectureship Award to his prominent list of accomplishments.
VLBA images detect orbital motion of two supermassive black holes as they circle each other at the center of a distant galaxy.
New evidence from the VLA suggests that a jet of material ejected by a young star may have triggered the formation of a second, younger star.
To make a star, the conditions inside interstellar gas clouds have to be “just right.” When it comes to a cloud’s magnetic fields, however, those conditions may range from powerful and orderly to weak and chaotic, new ALMA observations suggest.
New VLA images are helping astronomers understand the origin of a giant radio-emitting structure in a cluster of galaxies.
Astronomy outreach team travels to Chile to learn about U.S.-funded observatories.
ALMA has observed stars like the Sun at a very early stage in their formation and found traces of methyl isocyanate — a chemical building block of life.
