A team mapping radio waves in the Universe has discovered something unusual that releases a giant burst of energy three times an hour, and it’s unlike anything astronomers have seen before. The team who discovered it think it could be a neutron star or a white dwarf—collapsed cores of stars—with an ultra-powerful magnetic field.
Astronomers have observed the nearest active supermassive black hole to Earth at radio wavelengths in unprecedented detail. The emission is powered by a central black hole in the galaxy Centaurus A, about 12 million light years away.
Astronomers have a new way of detecting active black holes in the Universe and measuring how much matter they are sucking in.
New research shows the relationship between the mass of stars and a galaxy’s rotation is not what we first thought, with different galaxy types displaying a different relationship between the two properties.
Galaxies are being killed in one of the most extreme regions of the nearby Universe and astronomers think they know why.
An Australian-built major subsystem for the European Southern Observatory’s 4MOST instrument has arrived in Germany at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) ready for testing prior to installation on the four-metre VISTA telescope located in the Atacama Desert in Chile.
