Astronomers have detected X-rays from Uranus for the first time, using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.
4.- Sonification Collection
(Wed, 24 Mar 2021 )
As part of our ongoing data sonification series, three new images have now been released.
(Tue, 09 Mar 2021 )
Astronomers may have found the most distant supermassive black hole with a jet detected in X-rays using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.
6.- Supernova 1987A
(Tue, 23 Feb 2021 )
Astronomers have found evidence for the existence of a neutron star at the center of Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A), which scientists have been seeking for over three decades.
7.- Sagittarius A East
(Mon, 08 Feb 2021 )
Astronomers have found evidence for an unusual type of supernova near the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
8.- Triple Galaxy Mergers
(Thu, 14 Jan 2021 )
When three galaxies collide, what happens to the central black holes growing at the cores of each?
(Fri, 08 Jan 2021 )
In 2020, astronomers added a new member to an exclusive family of exotic objects with the discovery of a magnetar. New Chandra observations help support the idea that it is also a pulsar.
