NRAO’s 140-foot telescope celebrates 50 years of discovery.
A study of spiral galaxies seen edge-on has revealed that “halos” of cosmic rays and magnetic fields above and below the galaxies’ disks are much more common than previously thought.
NSF grant to NRAO and WVU expands Pulsar Search Collaboratory.
There may be fewer pairs of supermassive black holes orbiting each other at the cores of giant galaxies than previously thought.
Dwarf galaxy WLM reveals its star-forming secrets.
GBT helps study gravity in distant star system.
Some neutron stars may rival black holes in their ability to accelerate powerful jets of material to nearly the speed of light.
Astronomers have discovered the first aurora ever seen in an object beyond our Solar System. The aurora, similar to the famous “Northern Lights” on Earth, is 10,000 times more powerful than any previously seen.
Astronomers using the Very Large Array have discovered jets of material ejected by still-forming young brown dwarfs.
