MAGIC Telescope Sheds Light on the Cosmic-Ray Sea That Fills the Milky Way --"Origin Still a Mystery"

"Those supernovae are natural accelerators of particles, therefore the perfect laboratory to study charge particles and plasma in conditions that are not possible in our labs in Earth", remarks Daniel Galindo, working at Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University...        

Giant antennas in New Mexico search for cosmic discoveries

Employing an array of giant telescopes positioned in the New Mexico desert, astronomers have started a massive surveying project aimed at producing the most detailed view ever made of such a large portion of space using radio waves emitted from throughout the Milky Way and beyond.

New mirror-coating technology promises dramatic improvements in telescopes

Materials scientist Nobuhiko Kobayashi wasn't quite sure why the astronomer he met at a wine-tasting several years ago was so interested in his research, but as he learned more about telescope mirrors it began to make sense.

New mirror-coating technology promises dramatic improvements in telescopes

Materials scientist Nobuhiko Kobayashi wasn't quite sure why the astronomer he met at a wine-tasting several years ago was so interested in his research, but as he learned more about telescope mirrors it began to make sense. "It turns out that improving the performance of mirrors is all about thin-film materials, and that's what I do. Show More Summary

New mirror-coating technology promises dramatic improvements in telescopes

(University of California - Santa Cruz) At UC Santa Cruz, an electrical engineer has teamed up with astronomers to improve telescope mirrors using thin-film technology from the electronics industry. They are developing new protective coatings using an atomic layer deposition system large enough to accommodate telescope mirrors.

When radio galaxies collide, supermassive black holes form tightly bound pairs

A study using multiple radio telescopes confirms that supermassive black holes found in the centers of galaxies can form gravitationally bound pairs when galaxies merge.

X-ray burst spotted in the galactic bulge

(Phys.org)—Using the JEM-X telescope onboard the INTEGRAL space observatory, astronomers have discovered a new X-ray burst in the galactic bulge. The X-ray burst was detected from the faint unidentified transient source know as IGR J17445-2747. The discovery is reported in a paper published Sept. 8 on arXiv.org.

Image: Hubble catches starbursts in a barred spiral galaxy

This Hubble Space Telescope picture shows NGC 5398, a barred spiral galaxy located about 55 million light-years away.

This portable telescope is great for the amateur astronomer

4 days agoHumor / odd : Boing Boing

The sky is always much clearer outside of urban spaces. Next time you find yourself in the wilderness, you should come prepared with this Outdoor Monocular Telescope. It provides a crystal-clear view of stars, landscapes, and the rest of the natural world, and is now being offered in the Boing Boing Store. Show More Summary

Scientists discover light-eating dark planet

Using Hubble’s Space Telescope, researchers have found a planet so dark that it absorbs 94 percent of the light that reaches it. Read more...

Hubble Telescope Observes Goth Jupiter

Over a thousand light years away, there's a planet that isn't conforming to your so-called rules. It isn't one of the jocks like Earth, or one of the preps like Saturn. WASP-12b probably sits beneath the bleachers dressed in its black...Show More Summary

NASA's Hubble captures blistering pitch-black planet

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere.

Strange Pitch-Black Exoplanet Observed by Hubble Space Telescope

Astronomers have discovered that the well-studied, egg-shaped exoplanet WASP-12b reflects almost no light, making it appear essentially pitch black. This discovery sheds new light on the atmospheric composition of the planet and also refutes previous hypotheses about WASP-12b's atmosphere. The...        

NASA's Hubble captures blistering pitch-black planet

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt.

The return of the comet-like exoplanet

(Université de Genève) Astronomers from UNIGE), also members of the PlanetS, focused the Hubble Space Telescope on an exoplanet that had already been seen losing its atmosphere, which forms an enormous cloud of hydrogen, giving the planet the appearance of a giant comet. Show More Summary

The return of the comet-like exoplanet

Astronomers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland and collaborators used the Hubble Space Telescope to study an exoplanet that had been observed losing its atmosphere, forming an enormous cloud of hydrogen and giving the planet the appearance of a giant comet. Show More Summary

"Inferno Alien World With Titanium Skies" --ESO's Very Large Telescope Detects Extreme Exoplanet (WATCH Today's 'Galaxy' Stream)

A team of astronomers led by Elyar Sedaghati, an ESO fellow and recent graduate of TU Berlin, has examined the atmosphere of the exoplanet WASP-19b in greater detail than ever before. This remarkable planet has about the same mass as...        

Inferno world with titanium skies

(ESO) Astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope have detected titanium oxide in an exoplanet atmosphere for the first time. This discovery around the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-19b exploited the power of the FORS2 instrument. It provides...Show More Summary

Driving the universal quantum bus

NIST scientists have achieved a world record in detecting the intensity of an ultra-faint source of light, equaling the capabilities of the deep-space instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope but operating 100 times faster and with equivalent accuracy.
