April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Using the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have observed what seems to be windy weather surrounding a T Tauri star—considered to be an infant analog of our own Sun. Such wind might explain why some T Tauri stars have disks that glow weirdly in infrared light while others have a more expected shine. The results of this study were published in a recent issue of the...

Richard Hook, ESO Lupus 4, a spider-shaped blob of gas and dust, blots out background stars like a dark cloud on a moonless night in this intriguing new image. Although gloomy for now, dense pockets of material within clouds such as Lupus 4 are where new stars form and where they will later burst into radiant life. The Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile captured this new picture. [ Watch the Video: A Close-Up View Of The Dark...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA's Space Shuttle Columbia carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into space 15 years ago, deploying it on July 23, 1999. Chandra, along with the other "Great Observatories" like Hubble and Spitzer, has helped to revolutionize the way we view the Universe using an unprecedented X-ray vision. "Chandra changed the way we do astronomy. It showed that precision observation of the X-rays from cosmic sources is critical to understanding...

Former Missile Tracking Telescope Tracks Evolution Of Crab Pulsar
2013-10-31 16:31:02

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A former missile tracking telescope has helped astronomers determine how the magnetic field structure and rotation of a young and rapidly rotating Crab pulsar evolves. Scientists wrote in the journal Science about a 22-year experiment that involved observing a steady change in the flashes of the Crab pulsar. This highly-compact star emits beams of radio waves that produce flashes each time it rotates, which occurs about 30 times a...

Triple Star -- A triple star system consists of three gravitationally bound stars. The stars are in orbits around a common center of mass, usually so that two of the stars form a close binary star and the third is further away. This configuration is often called a hierarchical triple star. Multiple stars containing more than three stars can usually be decomposed to binaries and single stars that are in a hierachically bound system. ----- Click here to learn more on this...

T Tauri -- T Tauri stars are a class of stars thought to represent extremely young pre-main sequence stars, in an early stage of life. They are seen near many molecular clouds in our galaxy. The first ones were found in 1945, identified by their optical variability and strong chromospheric lines. T Tauri stars have masses and temperatures similar to the Sun, but are significantly brighter. They have fast rotation rates, typically with a period of a few days, compared to a month for...

Open Cluster -- An open cluster is a group of star formed from a molecular cloud, the illuminated parts of which we see as one or more nebulae. They are also called galactic clusters since they exist within the galaxy. All the stars in an open cluster have more or less the same age and the same chemical composition, so any difference between them is solely due to their mass. Most open clusters are dominated by their O-type and B-type giant blue stars, which are very luminous but...
