Brown Dwarfs, Stars Share Formation Process, New Study Indicates
July 23, 2015 at 3:51 pm | News Release

Astronomers using the Very Large Array have discovered jets of material ejected by still-forming young brown dwarfs.

IC 342
Magnetic-Field Discovery Gives Clues to Galaxy Formation Processes
June 18, 2015 at 2:00 pm | News Release

Astronomers making a detailed, multi-telescope study of a nearby galaxy have discovered a magnetic field coiled around the galaxy’s main spiral arm.

VLA Reveals Bashful Black Hole in Neighboring Galaxy
June 17, 2015 at 3:45 pm | News Release

Thanks to the extraordinary sensitivity of the Karl G Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), astronomers have detected what they believe is the long-sought radio emission coming from a supermassive black hole at the center of one of our closest neighboring galaxies.

Strange Supernova is ‘Missing Link’ in Gamma-Ray Burst Connection
April 27, 2015 at 4:52 pm | News Release

Astronomers using the National Science Foundation’s Very Large Array (VLA) have found a long-sought ‘missing link’ between supernova explosions that generate gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and those that don’t. The scientists found that a stellar explosion seen in 2012 has many characteristics expected of one that generates a powerful burst of gamma rays, yet no such burst occurred.

Image Release: Mysterious Phenomena in a Gigantic Galaxy-Cluster Collision
March 10, 2015 at 12:00 pm | News Release

Researchers using the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) have produced the most detailed image yet of a fascinating region where clusters of hundreds of galaxies are colliding, creating a rich variety of mysterious phenomena visible only to radio telescopes.

Astronomers Catch Multiple-Star System in First Stages of Formation
February 11, 2015 at 6:00 pm | News Release

For the first time, astronomers have caught a multiple-star system in the beginning stages of its formation, and their direct observations of this process give strong support to one of several suggested pathways to producing such systems.

Teacup Galaxy
VLA Finds Unexpected Storm at Galaxy’s Core
February 11, 2015 at 1:00 pm | News Release

Astronomers using the National Science Foundation’s Very Large Array (VLA) found surprisingly energetic activity in what they otherwise considered a ‘boring’ galaxy, and their discovery provides important insight on how supermassive black holes can have a catastrophic effect on the galaxies in which they reside.
