More than 25 Andor cameras used in the recent LIGO collaboration responsible for the discovery and observation of a kilonova
A team of Engineers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston made use of light waves to align the James Webb Space Telescope’s mirror segments to each other, so they behave like a single, monolithic mirror in the cryogenic cold of the center’s iconic Chamber A.
Materials scientist Nobuhiko Kobayashi wasn't quite sure why the astronomer he met at a wine-tasting several years ago was so interested in his research, but as he learned more about telescope mirrors it began to make sense.
In a recent photograph taken at Chamber A of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, a bunny-suited technician is seen performing the important task of guaranteeing that no unwanted infrared light interferes with the optical testing of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope inside this chamber.
A sophisticated telescope for detecting optical signatures of gravitational waves - developed and operated by a global research partnership, headed by the University of Warwick - has been officially launched.
China's first homegrown X-ray telescope, which aims to survey the Milky Way to observe celestial sources of X-rays, lifted off into space at 11 AM local time on June 15.
Scientists at NASA have produced telescope mirrors that have the highest ever reflectance observed in the far-ultraviolet spectral range. Now, they are attempting to set another record.
Scientists are a step closer to understanding the inner-workings of the universe following the laying of the first stone, and construction starting on the world's largest optical and infrared telescope
NexOptic Technology Corp. and Spectrum Optix Inc. of Calgary, Canada and together with NexOptic, the "Companies" are pleased to announce that they have completed assembly of their proof of concept telescope prototype lens stack and successfully captured its first set of unprocessed images of the moon.
A groundbreaking new optical device, developed at NJIT’s Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) to correct images of the Sun distorted by multiple layers of atmospheric turbulence, is providing scientists with the most precisely detailed, real-time pictures to date of solar activity occurring across vast stretches of the star’s surface.
