The call for proposals for the European VLBI Network (EVN) is open. EVN access and travel support is possible through the OPTICON RadioNet Pilot project (ORP). All regular proposals should be submitted through the Northstar submission tool. Submission deadline: 1 October 2023 at 16:00 UTC.
An international research team led by Silke Britzen from the MPIfR in Bonn/DE has investigated blazars, accreting supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. The researchers present evidence that it is in fact the precession of the jet source, either caused by the presence of a second massive black hole close to the primary [...]

Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have detected the magnetic field of a galaxy so far away that its light has taken more than 11 billion years to reach us. The result provides astronomers with vital clues about how the magnetic fields of galaxies like our own Milky Way came to be. Read ALMA´s [...]
