A Custody Battle Is Raging Over the Contents of This 1894 Time Capsule

8 hours agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

This past Sunday workers demolishing a former telescope factory in Pittsburgh were surprised to find a 19th century time capsule in the cornerstone. Now the demolition company is claiming that it has every right to keep the capsule — along with the incredibly cool telescope artifacts that they found inside. Read more...

This New Infrared Telescope Could Help Us Detect Dyson Spheres

11 hours agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

The search for extraterrestrial intelligence just got a big boost, thanks to the introduction of a powerful new infrared telescope. In addition to scanning for pulses of infrared light, astronomers will use device to search for alien megastructures, such as Dyson Spheres. Read more...

Crash Course Astronomy Episode 6: Telescopes

By number, I’d say I go outside and use just my eyeballs to look at the stars more than any other method. Every time I step outside, the first thing I do is look up. Even during the day: I wouldn’t want to miss the Moon, some Sun-induced...Show More Summary

Searching for the origins of life with the James Webb Space Telescope

Hubble has been a boon to deep space exploration, gifting us iconic pictures of the skies and revealing new insights into the history of the early universe. For the next big step in space astronomy, NASA, ESA and the Canadian Space Agency...Show More Summary

APEX observations shed light on 17th-century star collision

2 days agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

The European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Atacama Pathfinder Experiment telescope (APEX) has been used to solve a 340 year-old astronomical mystery. The findings reveal that an object that appeared in the sky in the 17th century was not a nova as astronomers at the time believed, but actually a rare stellar collision... Show More Summary

Automation offers big solution to big data in astronomy

The Square Kilometer Array, a radio telescope planned for Africa and Australia, will have an unprecedented ability to deliver data -- lots of data points, with lots of details -- on the location and properties of stars, galaxies and giant clouds of hydrogen gas. Scientists have now developed a new, faster approach to analyzing all that data.

Taking a Dusty View

I do love an edge-on spiral galaxy. They look so odd! That image above is from the Hubble Space Telescope and shows NGC 7814, a galaxy about 40 million light-years away. That makes it relatively close as galaxies go! It’s a bit like looking at a house in the next town over. Show More Summary

Hubble Gives Us A Wide-Angle View Of An Entire Galaxy

The Hubble telescope is probably best known for its incredible close-up images of everything from star formation to Jupiter's shrinking spots. But my favorite Hubble pics are always the sweeping, broad views of galaxies — and its latest is a real beauty. Read more...

Colliding stars explain enigmatic 17th century explosion

New observations made with APEX and other telescopes reveal that the star that European astronomers saw appear in the sky in 1670 was not a nova, but a much rarer, violent breed of stellar collision.

Mystery Solved! Rare Stellar Collision Observed in 1670

New observations made with APEX and other telescopes reveal that the star that European astronomers saw appear in the sky in 1670 was not a nova, but a much rarer, violent breed of stellar collision. It was spectacular enough to...

Bad Astronomy Video: The Pink and Purple Crab

Take equal parts 1) supernova, 2) Hubble Space Telescope, and 3) Herschel infrared Observatory. Mix well. What do you get? Purple (and pink) majesty. This video is based on an article I wrote about this observation. And yeah, you want...Show More Summary

South Pole telescope expands cosmic search

The 10-meter SPT, which maps the cosmic microwave background, is the largest telescope ever to make its way to the South Pole. A major upgrade will help scientists to determine the masses of neutrinos and further study cosmic inflat...

Einstein's Telescope

5 days agoHumor / odd : mental_floss

Recently I heard that astronomers had observed the same supernova exploding four times, and that it had something to do with gravitation and optics. It was one of those moments where I heard (or read) the headline but didn't catch the details, and I tucked it into the "look it up later" file. Show More Summary

18 Amazing Images From NASA's Hubble Space Telescope

Over the past 25 years, the Space Telescope has captured our most spectacular images of the universe. If you see a spectacular image of a galaxy far, far away, chances are it comes from one telescope. Since 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope...Show More Summary

Expanding the cosmic search

This article appeared in Fermilab Today on March 20, 2015. Down at the South Pole, where temperatures drop below negative 100 degrees Fahrenheit and darkness blankets the land for six months at a time, the South Pole Telescope (SPT) searches the skies for answers to the mysteries of our universe. This mighty scavenger is about Read the full article

Milky Way's center: Supernova 'dust factory'

Sifting through the center of the Milky Way galaxy, astronomers have made the first direct observations -- using an infrared telescope aboard a modified Boeing 747 -- of cosmic building-block dust resulting from an ancient supernova...

Telescopes in contact lenses: a brilliant idea after the fiasco of Google Glass

Yesterday at SXSW, the world’s grooviest ‘interactive festival’, the head of Google X – the company’s mysterious research lab – finally admitted it. Google Glass was one gigantic embarrassment. Or, as… Continue reading The post Telescopes in contact lenses: a brilliant idea after the fiasco of Google Glass appeared first on Spectator Blogs.
