The European Southern Observatory’s Extremely Large Telescope (ESO’s ELT) is a revolutionary ground-based telescope that will have a 39-metre main mirror and will be the largest telescope in the world for visible and infrared light: the world’s biggest eye on the sky.
Using images from VLT and Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered fast-moving wave-like features in the dusty disc around the nearby star AU Microscopii.
Scientists have for the first time observed the early universe running in extreme slow motion, unlocking one of the mysteries of Einstein’s expanding universe.
The Baade window is a region of sky unshielded by interstellar dust that allows observation of stars and globular clusters near of the Milky Way’s galactic core
The formation of giant planets has traditionally been divided into two paths: core accretion and gravitational instability. Today we present the young star V960 Mon.
This discovery marks a missing link in our picture of stellar evolution toward systems with merging neutron stars, which are crucial to our understanding of the origin of heavy elements, such as silver and gold.
Hubble Space Telescope has captured a monster in the making in this observation of the exceptional galaxy cluster.
NGC 6946 is a medium-sized, face-on spiral galaxy about 22 million light years away from Earth
