Of the 10 observatories in the city, Bhandup and BKC recorded "very poor" air quality with PM2.5 levels at 327. Borivali, Mazagaon and Navi Mumbai recorded "poor" air quality with PM2.5 levels at 225, 203 and 260, Only Colaba and Worli observatories recorded "moderate" levels. (Representational Image).
Fly, Starman, fly! The Tesla Roadster and its mannequin driver, that launched into space aboard SpaceX's first Falcon Heavy rocket on Tuesday (Feb. 6), has been spotted zipping through space by a telescope on the ground. And we can't stop watching it! Yesterday (Feb. 8), Gianluca Masi of the Virtual ...

This artist's concept shows what the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system might look like, based on available data about the planets' diameters, masses and distances from the host star, as of February 2018. Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech. A new study has revealed the compositions of the seven TRAPPIST-1 ...
The programme is called Global Relay of observatories Watching Transients Happen (GROWTH). observatories in this network are located in a way that will allow uninterrupted observation of transient events. "A lot of interesting objects and events occur in the universe which need to be caught very young ...
Astronomers Gianluca Masi, of the Virtual telescope Project, and Michael Schwartz, founder of Tenagra observatories, used data from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to direct a telescope toward the car and capture an image of its historic journey. 2_8_Tesla Roadster in Space Astronomers Gianluca ...
Polidan said that the group, at its November meeting, suggested that NASA work with industry and academia to study the roles the Gateway could play in assembly and servicing of observatories. That needs to be done in the near future, he said, to ensure that any specific requirements for those activities ...

Lunar showstopper: Best of the super-blue-blood moon eclipse from US observatories. Wed, Jan 31. share. Source: Associated Press. the moon put on a rare cosmic show early today.
The Applied astronomy Group of Yunnan observatories, Chinese Academy of sciences detected the laser echo signal from the lunar-surface reflector Apollo 15 for several times, which is the first successful LLR experiment nationwide in China. On the night of Jan 22, using the 1.2-meter telescope Laser ...
observatories around the world dropped everything to inspect the traveler before it got too far away to see. The pole-shaped rock, tinted red from being battered by cosmic rays, stretches about a quarter-mile, 10 times longer than it is wide. It will pass Neptune's orbit around 2022 as it leaves the solar system ...
To catch those dips, Astronomers needed to monitor the star 24 hours a day over most of a year--too big a commitment for most observatories. So Lacour and his colleagues decided to build a small one of their own. In 3 years, with €1.5 million from the European Research Council, they built PicSat, ...
This is a Hubble Space Telescope image of the farthest galaxy yet seen in an image that has been stretched and amplified by a phenomenon called gravitational lensing. The embryonic galaxy, named SPT0615-JD, existed when the universe was just 500 million years old. Credit: NASA , ESA, and B.
"On September 14, 2015 the two detectors of the laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) made the first direct observation of gravitational waves, from two merging black holes. On August 17 of this year, the LIGO and Virgo observatories detected gravitational waves from the merging of ...
Astronauts last serviced Hubble in 2009. Credit: NASA While NASA moved away from servicing of space telescopes after Hubble, scientists and engineers believe that astronaut and robotic servicing of future observatories is critical both to make them cost-effective in the long run as well as enable their ...
The dry air and sparse settlement are a major draw for astronomical observatories--the European Southern Observatory, the Carnegie institution for science, and the Llano de Chajnantor Observatory all operate multiple telescope sites on the region's mountaintops. The desert wind, however, is a problem.
The collision was detected by the laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), as well as the Virgo gravitational wave detector, and by "more than 70 ground and space based observatories," according to a statement from LIGO. The gravitational-wave observatories were able to confirm that ...
17, the advanced laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and advanced Virgo observatories on Earth detected those ripples. Because the waves were generated just as the stars merged, the scientists who detected them had enough time to alert Astronomers of the light and radiation ...
This illustration provided by the Carnegie institution for science shows the most-distant supermassive black hole ever discovered, which is part of a quasar from just 690 million years after the Big Bang. On Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, a team led by the Carnegie observatories' Eduardo Banados reported the ...

Even with the best planetary defense systems in place, it's still a gamble. Deflecting an asteroid would require months, if not years, of advance notice in order to mount a successful counter mission. In many cases, observatories aren't even aware of asteroids passing close to Earth until just days in advance.
The embryonic galaxy named SPT0615-JD existed when the universe was just 500 million years old. Though a few other primitive galaxies have been seen at this early epoch, they have essentially all looked like red dots, given their small size and tremendous distances. However, in this case, the ...
KENNEWICK -- The detection of the fiery crash of two neutron stars at the Hanford LIGO and other observatories this summer has upended one theory about the universe. On Aug. 17, the laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory near Richland and two other gravitational-wave observatories ...
