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...

Ghostly ring found circling dead star

An international team of scientists has found a strange ring around a dead star by using images taken by NASA's Spitzer space telescope. This star, called SGR 1900+14, belongs to a class of objects known as magnetars. According to NASA, a magnetar is 'a highly magnetized neutron star and the remnant of a brilliant supernova explosion signaling the death throes of a massive star.' So far, about a dozen magnetars have been found. An amazing thing about these stellar objects is their magnetic field. One of the researchers said that 'magnetars possess magnetic fields a million billion times stronger than the magnetic field of the Earth.' But read more...
