Astronomers Discover Parallel Disks and Jets Erupting from a Pair of Young Stars

Astronomers recently used two very different and powerful telescopes, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and NASA's James Webb Space Telescope's (JWST) Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI), to discover twin disks and twin parallel jets erupting from young stars in a multiple-star system. This discovery was unexpected and unprecedented, given the stars, disks, and jets' age, size, [...]

Origin of fast radio bursts came into focus through polarized light

An international team of astronomers suspects based on their findings that non-repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) probably originate from galaxies similar to our Milky Way. The team compared the polarised light from 128 of these non-repeating FRBs with repeating ones. The researchers published their results in The Astrophysical Journal with the title Polarization Properties of [...]

First Detection of VLBI Signals across 8500 km Baseline between TNRT and Effelsberg Radio Telescopes

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT), in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR), has achieved the historic first detection of astronomical radio signals using Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) with the 40-m Thai National Radio Telescope (TNRT). The experiment, performed together with the Effelsberg 100-m radio telescope in Germany, [...]
