Studies with the VLA indicate that roughly half of the massive black holes in dwarf galaxies are not in the centers of those galaxies. This gives astronomers new insights into the conditions in which similar black holes formed and grew in the early history of the Universe.
VLA image reveals a large-scale magnetic field extending far into a galaxy’s extended halo.
Astronomers have found the first example of a galaxy cluster where large numbers of stars are being born at its core. The discovery revealed new details of how supermassive black holes affect their host galaxies.
Radio telescope observations have made it possible for astronomers to use mergers of neutron-star pairs as a valuable new tool for measuring the Universe’s expansion.
For decades astronomers have dreamed of seeing a black hole. That dream may soon become a reality.
A dusty, doughnut-shaped feature long thought to be an essential part of the “engines” at the cores of active galaxies, is seen for the first time in one of the most powerful galaxies in the Universe.
VLA image shows the trail of a speeding pulsar pointing directly back at the center of the debris shell from the supernova explosion that created it.
Astronomers have studied a perplexing cosmic blast with a worldwide collection of telescopes, including ALMA and the VLA, but still are not sure exactly what it is.
Comparing data from new, ongoing sky survey to data from previous observations reveals probable gamma ray burst that directed no gamma rays toward Earth.
The VLA’s discovery of a jet of material launched from a highly-magnetic neutron star has forced rethinking a longstanding theory.
