NASA Continues Work on Most Powerful Telescope Ever Created

NASA scientists are continuing their work on the James Webb Space Telescope, said to be the most powerful telescope ever created. The telescope is said to be capable of capturing seven times more light than its successor, the Hubble Space Telescope, a factor that will aid in its expected exploration of the deepest reaches of outer space. The NASA Goddard ... Read More »

Dome of world’s largest solar telescope completed

Basauri: The work on a dome meant to protect the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST), now under construction in the US state of Hawaii, has been completed by two Spanish companies. The dome has been designed to allow the telescope to follow the movement of the sun across the sky, said an official linked to one of the two Spanish ... Read More »

First telescope on Moon to be set up in 3 years

LONDON: Within three years, a telescope as big as a shoe box and weighing just about two kg will be installed on the moon. The images taken by the lunar telescope will be open to all educators, researchers and the general public in a pioneering experiment to democratize access to space exploration. The world’s first mission to the Moon’s south ... Read More »

Nasa’s Hubble telescope discovers new Neptune moon

The Hubble space telescope has discovered a new moon orbiting Neptune, Nasa has confirmed. Designated S/2004 N 1, this is the 14th known moon to circle the giant planet. It also appears to be the smallest moon in the Neptunian system, measuring just 20 km (12 miles) across, completing one revolution around Neptune every 23 hours. US astronomer Mark Showalter ...

NASA telescope spots 503 new potential alien planets

NASA’s Kepler telescope has identified 503 new potential alien planets, some of which may even be habitable. “Some of these new planet candidates are small and some reside in the habitable zone of their stars, but much work remains to be done to verify these results,” said Kepler mission manager Roger Hunter, of NASA’s Ames Research Center.  The latest finding ...

Rare birth of mega-galaxy captured by space telescope

The new mega-galaxy was originally spotted by a post-doctoral researcher at University of California, Irvine, in an image recorded by the European Space Agency’s Herschel telescope. Researchers in the US have captured rare images of the creation of a massive galaxy about 10 times the size of the Milky Way that was formed when two young galaxies collided 11 billion ...

A Star Is Born? No, But Maybe a Planet

Astronomers have spotted what they believe is a planet in the dramatic and violent process of being born in another solar system, an event that may shed light on how planets come into being. An international team of researchers said the so-called protoplanet has a mass that appears to be at least the size of Jupiter, and perhaps two to ... Read More »

Hubble telescope spies 7 galaxies from baby years of universe

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have found seven galaxies that formed relatively shortly after the universe’s birth some 13.7 billion years ago, scientists said on Wednesday, describing them “as baby pictures of the universe.” One of the objects may be the oldest galaxy yet found, dating back to a time when the universe was just 380 million years old, ...
