First view of a newborn millisecond pulsar?
Combining Hubble Space Telescope images with radio observations has revealed a highly unusual system consisting of a fast spinning pulsar and a bloated red companion star. The existence of the system is something of a mystery - the best explanation so far is that we have our first view of a millisecond pulsar just after it has been `spun up` by its red companion star. View News Article (2002-02-13)


First sunrise on Hinode's instruments
The Hinode (formerly Solar-B) satellite, a joint Japan/NASA/PPARC mission launched on 22nd September 2006, has today (October 31st) reported its first observations of the Sun with its suite of scientific instruments. View News Article (2006-11-01)


Hubble Watches Star Clusters on a Collision Course
Astronomers using data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have caught two clusters full of massive stars that may be in the early stages of merging. The clusters are 170,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy to our Milky Way. View News Article (2012-08-17)


NASA's Hubble sees the 'teenage years' of quasars
Astronomers have used the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared vision to uncover the mysterious early formative years of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe. Hubble's sharp images unveil chaotic collisions of galaxies that fuel quasars by feeding supermassive central black holes with gas. View News Article (2015-06-19)


Black hole jets pack a powerful punch
Black-hole jets recycle matter and energy into space and can affect when and where a galaxy forms stars. View News Article (2013-11-25)


Astronomers come up dry in search for water on exoplanets
A team of astronomers has made the most precise measurements yet of water vapour in the atmospheres of Jupiter-like planets beyond our Solar System and found them to be much drier worlds than expected. View News Article (2014-07-24)


A blueprint for clearing the skies of space debris
An international team of scientists have put forward a blueprint for a purely space-based system to solve the growing problem of space debris. View News Article (2015-04-20)


Iowa State astrophysicists provide the eyes for new gamma ray telescope system
There's a "First Light Fiesta" in the works at Mt. Hopkins near Amado, Ariz. And Iowa State University astrophysicists will be among those enjoying the celebration of a new telescope system and all the science it will produce. View News Article (2007-04-20)


Most Quasars Live on Snacks, Not Large Meals
Black holes in the early universe needed a few snacks rather than one giant meal to fuel their quasars and help them grow, a new study shows.  View News Article (2012-06-20)


Physicists uncover new solution for cosmic collisions
It turns out that our math teachers were right: being able to solve problems without a calculator does come in handy in the "real" world. View News Article (2008-01-11)
