Webb Reveals an Exoplanet Atmosphere as Never Seen Before

The NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope just scored another first: a molecular and chemical portrait of a distant world’s skies. While Webb and other space telescopes, including the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, have previously revealed isolated ingredients of this heated planet’s atmosphere, the new readings provide a full menu of atoms, molecules, and even signs [...]

To the Heart of 3C 273: International Team Observes Innermost Structure of a Quasar Jet

An international group of scientists including astronomers at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) and ALMA present new observations of the first quasar ever identified.  Its name is 3C273 and it is located at a distance of approx. 1.9 Billion light years  in the Virgo constellation. The new high-resolution radio images trace the [...]
