Latest results from the neutron-star laboratory

Latest results from the neutron-star laboratory

SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research, the Astronomical Institute "Anton Pannekoek" of the University of Amsterdam, and ASTRON Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy are organizing a 5-day conference detailing the latest developments in neutron star research. More than 45 years after the discovery of the first pulsar, neutron stars are now used as gravitational-wave detectors and astrophysical…

Radio Astronomy in the LSST Era

Radio Astronomy in the LSST Era

NRAO will host a 2 ½ day workshop to explore the landscape of radio wavelength observations in an era in which the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) is producing thousands of nightly alerts and developing a deep, multi-color view of the sky.  Radio wavelength observations will provide independent, complementary views of the sky, and they will…

Fifty Years of Seismology of the Sun and Stars

Fifty Years of Seismology of the Sun and Stars

In the last 50 years, helioseismology has made significant contributions to the knowledge of the Sun's interior physics and has led the way to asteroseismology. We have now reached an era where more sophisticated questions are being asked to understand the subtle properties of the Sun and other stars due to the synoptic and high-resolution…

Hot spots in the outer atmosphere of Betelgeuse

Astronomers have released a new image of the outer atmosphere of Betelgeuse, one of the nearest red supergiants to Earth, revealing the detailed structure of the matter being thrown off the star. The new image, taken by the e-MERLIN radio telescope array operated from the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire, also shows regions of surprisingly hot…
