The discovery of microquasars within our own Milky Way Galaxy has won two astronomers a prize from the High Energy Astrophysics Division of the American Astronomical Society.
New observations with the National Science Foundation’s Very Long Baseline Array radio telescope have deepened the mystery surrounding water molecules in a galaxy 65 million light- years away.
An extraordinary cosmic laboratory 21 million light-years away is providing radio astronomers their best opportunity yet to decipher the mysteries of the ultra-powerful engines at the hearts of many galaxies and quasars.
A VLA upgrade proposes an essentially new instrument, created from two existing instruments, with power and capability far exceeding that of either one alone.
Observations of Comet Hyakutake with the National Science Foundation’s millimeter-wave radio telescope in Arizona have revealed new information about our Solar System’s original material, including the first detection of the Carbonyl Sulfide molecule in a comet.
Do nearby stars have planetary systems like our own? How do such systems evolve? How common are such systems? Proposed radio observatories operating at millimeter wavelengths could start answering these questions within the next 6-10 years, according to scientists at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
