Radio astronomer Bernie Fanaroff Adds 52nd Jansky Lectureship Award to his prominent list of accomplishments.
VLBA images detect orbital motion of two supermassive black holes as they circle each other at the center of a distant galaxy.
New evidence from the VLA suggests that a jet of material ejected by a young star may have triggered the formation of a second, younger star.
To make a star, the conditions inside interstellar gas clouds have to be “just right.” When it comes to a cloud’s magnetic fields, however, those conditions may range from powerful and orderly to weak and chaotic, new ALMA observations suggest.
New VLA images are helping astronomers understand the origin of a giant radio-emitting structure in a cluster of galaxies.
Astronomy outreach team travels to Chile to learn about U.S.-funded observatories.
ALMA has observed stars like the Sun at a very early stage in their formation and found traces of methyl isocyanate — a chemical building block of life.
Researchers are developing techniques that make it easier for scientists to produce high-quality visualizations of massive amounts of data.
The Boomerang Nebula — the so-called “coldest place in the universe — may get its frigid nature from a companion star supercharging a rapidly expanding outflow of gas.
