Cosmic Flasher Reveals All!
September 25, 1998 at 2:11 pm | News Release

Astronomers have found evidence for the most powerful magnetic field ever seen in the universe. They found it by observing a long-sought, short-lived afterglow of subatomic particles ejected from a magnetar — a neutron star with a magnetic field billions of times stronger than any on Earth and 100 times stronger than any other previously known in the Universe.

Potential Planetary System Around Close Stellar Pair
September 23, 1998 at 2:09 pm | News Release

Planets apparently can form in many more binary-star systems than previously thought, according to astronomers who used the National Science Foundation’s Very Large Array radio telescope to image protoplanetary disks around a close pair of stars.

Gamma-ray Burst 980329
Origin of Gamma-ray Bursts in Short-Lived Stars
June 9, 1998 at 2:06 pm | News Release

Radio telescope studies of the fiery afterglow of a Gamma Ray Burst have provided astronomers with the best clues yet about the origins of these tremendous cosmic cataclysms since their discovery more than 30 years ago.
