Anthony J Beasley has been appointed as the next Director of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, according to Ethan J Schreier, President of Associated Universities, Inc.
Pulsars, superdense neutron stars, are perhaps the most extraordinary physics laboratories in the Universe.
Two new and powerful research tools are helping astronomers gain key insights needed to transform our understanding of important processes across the breadth of astrophysics.
Astronomers using the partially completed ALMA observatory have found compelling evidence for how star-forming galaxies evolve into ‘red and dead’ elliptical galaxies, catching a large group of galaxies right in the middle of this change.
The world’s most famous radio telescope will become the Karl G Jansky Very Large Array to honor the founder of radio astronomy, the study of the Universe via radio waves naturally emitted by objects in space.
Astronomers have gained an important clue about a ubiquitous cosmic process by pinpointing the exact moment when gigantic bullets of fast-moving material were launched from the region surrounding a black hole.
