  • Stunning New View of Planetary Genesis

    Stunning New View of Planetary Genesis

    A new image from ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array, reveals extraordinarily fine detail that has never been seen before in the planet-forming disc around a young star. These are the first observations that have used ALMA in its near-final configuration and the sharpest pictures ever made at sub-millimetre wavelengths. The new results are an enormous step forward in the observation of how protoplanetary discs develop and how planets form. For ALMA’s first observations in its new and most powerful […]

    Revolutionary ALMA Image Reveals Planetary Genesis

    A new ALMA image has revealed extraordinarily fine detail that has never been seen before in the planet forming disc around a young star. These are the first observations that have used ALMA with its antennas at almost their maximum extent. This has resulted in the sharpest picture ever made at submillimetre wavelengths.The new results are a huge step forward in the observation of how protoplanetary discs develop and how planets form. ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array is the […]

    ALMA And Its Contributions

    ALMA Video Compilation This video is longer than the usual post on this website, but I thought it would be interesting to watch as you can see firsthand what is happening with the new facility at Atacama,Chile. Some of you may find it boring as it shows all the telescopes moving in Synch or standing still. Overall it is good to learn about new technology and know what’s happening at the top of this mountain and also see some of […]

  • ALMA’s Eyes Open For Business

    ALMA’s Eyes Open For Business

    Dr J introduces us to this magnificent new telescope back in 2011.It is a joy to re-visit.My apologies for the length of this video(9 minutes). The first released image, from a telescope still under construction, reveals a view of the Universe that cannot be seen at all by visible-light and infrared telescopes. The most complex ground-based astronomy observatory in the world, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), has officially opened for astronomers. Enjoy and share….

  • Colliding Comets Hint at Unseen Exoplanet

    Colliding Comets Hint at Unseen Exoplanet

    The ALMA images reveal a vast belt of carbon monoxide located at the fringes of the system. Much of the gas is concentrated in a single clump located about 8 billion miles (13 billion kilometers) from the star, or nearly three times the distance between the planet Neptune and the sun. The total amount of CO observed, the scientists say, exceeds 200 million billion tons, equivalent to about one-sixth the mass of Earth’s oceans. An international team of astronomers exploring […]

  • Chile Chill

    Chile Chill

    This is a type of ESOcast designed to offer a calm experience of the Chilean night sky and ESO’s observing sites, undisturbed by facts or narration. In this episode we are treated to stunning views of the Atacama Desert, including the conical volcano Licancabur and slow moonrises over the Andes. Cutting-edge science and life behind the scenes at ESO, the European Southern Observatory.Tourists will know Chile as a land of natural wonders and dry deserts.Few know that one of Chile’s […]

  • Three planets found in star cluster

    Three planets found in star cluster

    In this video we explore the ultimate frontier with our host Dr J, a.k.a. Dr Joe Liske. Astronomers using ESO telescopes and others around the world have found three new planets orbiting stars in a cluster called Messier 67. Only a handful of such planets in clusters were known up to now. Surprisingly, one of the newly found planetary host stars seems to be an almost perfect solar twin, a star that is essentially identical to our own Sun. It’s […]

  • The Shepherd Planets

    The Shepherd Planets

    When would our technology allow us to see through the bright light of stars to see these alien worlds directly? That question has been asked many times.The answer has eluded us for a long time, enter Hubble telescope.With Hubble’s data sent back to Earth for over 20 years and with the ALMA,the not quite completed Atacama Large Millimeter-Submillimeter Array in the high desert of Chile and we have at least a partial answer to the above question. Find below the […]
