Associated Universities, Inc, and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory have awarded the 2008 Karl G Jansky Lectureship to Dr Arthur M Wolfe of the University of California, San Diego.
An international project to make the world’s most productive ground-based telescope 10 times more capable has reached its halfway mark and is on schedule to provide astronomers with an extremely powerful new tool for exploring the Universe.
In the thin, dry air of northern Chile’s Atacama Desert, at an altitude of 16,500 feet, an amazing new telescope system is taking shape, on schedule to provide the world’s astronomers with unprecedented views of the origins of stars, galaxies, and planets.
A new series of short radio programs designed to bring the space-age science of radio astronomy down to Earth is being launched by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory and Allegheny Mountain Radio.
Two of the world’s leading astronomical institutions have formalized an agreement to cooperate on joint efforts for the technical and scientific advancement of radio astronomy.
The first of two ALMA transporters — unique vehicles designed to move high-tech radio-telescope antennas in the harsh, high-altitude environment of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array — has been completed and passed its initial operational tests.
A new book published by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory tells the story of the founding and early years of the Observatory at Green Bank, West Virginia. But it was Fun: the first forty years of radio astronomy at Green Bank, is not a formal history, but rather a scrapbook of early memos, recollections, anecdotes and reports.
Associated Universities, Inc, and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory have awarded the 2007 Karl G Jansky Lectureship to Professor Karl M Menten of the Max-Planck-Institute for Radioastronomy in Bonn, Germany.
Radio telescopes now in operation or under construction will be indispensible to scientists wrestling with the big, unanswered questions of 21st-Century astrophysics. That was the conclusion of a wide-ranging scientific meeting held in Charlottesville, Virginia, June 18-21, to mark the 50th anniversary of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO).
The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is teaming with NASA’s upcoming Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope to allow astronomers to use both the orbiting facility and ground-based radio telescopes to maximize their scientific payoff.
