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.
New VLA images are helping astronomers understand the origin of a giant radio-emitting structure in a cluster of galaxies.
Astronomers were surprised when the VLA revealed that a bright new object has appeared near the core of a famous galaxy. They think it’s a second supermassive black hole, indicating that the galaxy has merged with another in the past.
Astronomers produced a dramatic new image of the famous Crab Nebula by combining data from five different telescopes spanning the breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum.
For the first time, astronomers have pinpointed the location in the sky of a Fast Radio Burst, allowing them to determine the distance and home galaxy of one of these mysterious pulses of radio waves.
Astronomers have gotten their first look at exactly where most of today’s stars were born.
Astronomers studying a cluster of still-forming protogalaxies seen as they were more than 10 billion years ago have found that a giant galaxy in the center of the cluster is forming from a surprisingly-dense soup of molecular gas.
For the first time, astronomers have seen a dusty disk of material around a young star fragmenting into a multiple-star system.
Two students and a teacher from Magdalena, New Mexico, have arrived in the Chilean town of San Pedro de Atacama as part of a Sister Cities program sponsored by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI).
VLA points to previously unknown galaxy cluster, GBT gets new vision, and ALMA uses double vision.
