Join Melissa Hoffman of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory for a tour of one of the most disruptive events in Universe.
VLA image reveals a large-scale magnetic field extending far into a galaxy’s extended halo.
Astronomers have found the first example of a galaxy cluster where large numbers of stars are being born at its core. The discovery revealed new details of how supermassive black holes affect their host galaxies.
The management team of the Joint ALMA Observatory have decided to return to regular operations.
For the first time, astronomers using ALMA have witnessed 3D motions of gas in a planet-forming disk. At three locations in the disk around a young star called HD 163296, gas is flowing like a waterfall into gaps that are most likely caused by planets in formation.
At the center of a galaxy called NGC 1068, a supermassive black hole hides within a thick doughnut-shaped cloud of dust and gas. When astronomers used ALMA to study this cloud in more detail, they made an unexpected discovery that could explain why supermassive black holes grew so rapidly in the early Universe.
