Inside an early star-forming galaxy

U.S. astronomers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have used adaptive optics (AO) on the 10-meter Keck Telescope in Hawaii in conjunction with other images provided by the Hubble Space Telescope to look inside a young star-forming galaxy as it appeared only two billion years after the Big Bang. The team made their observations by coupling two techniques, gravitational lensing and laser-assisted guide star (LGS) adaptive optics. 'Adaptive optics corrects the blurring effects of Earth's atmosphere by real-time monitoring of the signal from a natural guide star or an artificial guide star.' But read more...

From plane to satellite by laser

If you ever used an Internet connection in a plane, you probably think that it's easy to communicate between an aircraft and a satellite. This is true for 'traditional' data relay applications. But recently, a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite relayed optical laser links from an aircraft over a distance of 40,000 km for the first time. It remains to be seen if this kind of optical technology can be used for routine applications. However, it is attractive because it provides interference-free communications.
