Latest Submillimeter Array Stories
Astronomers using the Smithsonian's Submillimeter Array telescope have imaged the most detailed look yet of stellar nurseries within the Snake nebula.
Astronomers have discovered a giant star-forming region located 36,000 light-years away from Earth shining 100 times brighter than the Orion nebula.
The final antenna for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) project has just been handed over to the ALMA Observatory.
Despite its remoteness and unique scientific work environment, the ALMA observatory in Chile is not immune to the disputes between workers and management that affect every other industry.
An international team of astronomers discovered two titanium oxides, TiO and TiO2, at radio wavelengths using telescope arrays in the USA and in France. The detection was made in the environment of VY Canis Majoris, a giant star close to the end of its life.
Astronomers have discovered an unexpected spiral structure in the material around an old star called R Sculptoris
Astronomers have made a crucial step towards a scientific goal by observing the heart of a distant quasar with angular resolution.
Researchers from Europe and Japan have discovered a submillimeter galaxy -- a type of galaxy that has intense star formation activity and is covered by large amounts of dust -- located approximately 12.4 billion light-years away.
A new image of the center of the distinctive galaxy Centaurus A shows how a new telescope allows astronomers to see with unprecedented quality through the opaque dust lanes that obscure the galaxy's center.
The ultimate in high altitude, high-tech catering has arrived in Chile to serve chilled "provisions" to the telescopes at the largest astronomical complex in the world, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).
Mauna Kea Observatories -- Hawaii is Earth's connecting point to the rest of the Universe. The summit of Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawaii hosts the world's largest astronomical observatory, with telescopes operated by astronomers from eleven countries. The combined light-gathering power of the telescopes on Mauna Kea is fifteen times greater than that of the Palomar telescope in California -- for many years the world's largest -- and sixty times greater than that of the Hubble Space...
