ALMA discovers large 'hot' cocoon around a small baby star

A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope have observed the growth of a young star and its planets. The HD142527 system is located about 450 light-years from Earth. An artist's conception of HD142527 system is pictured above.

Astronomers have used the ALMA telescope to get their first glimpse of a fascinating stage of star formation in which planets forming around a young star are helping the star itself continue to grow, resolving a longstanding mystery.

An unusual spiral structure has been discovered around the Milky Way star R Sculptoris, a red giant star located about 1,500 light years away toward the constellation of the Sculptor (Sculptoris). The star was observed with the new Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the most powerful telescopic array observing near millimeter wavelengths. Data from ALMA observations was used to create a 3D visualization of the gas and dust immediately surrounding the star.

The bizarre spiral structure encircling a dying star was spotted by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope, and is believed to be a hidden companion star orbiting the star.

A giant radio telescope in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile captured, for the first time, the immense dust-making capabilities of an exploding star. The remains of the stellar explosion, known as supernova 1987A, are located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy roughly 168,000 light-years away from Earth.The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope captured new views of the supernova brimming with freshly formed dust. If large amounts of this dust drift into…

Why were early galaxies so dusty? Exploding stars may hold clues.

This beautiful space wallpaper is an artist's illustration of Supernova which is based on real data and reveals the cold, inner regions of the exploded star's remnants (in red) where tremendous amounts of dust were detected and imaged by ALMA.

ALMA reveals intense magnetic field close to supermassive black hole

A very powerful magnetic field has been detected at the edge of a supermassive black hole in the distant PKS galaxy. The magnetic field is far more powerful than anything previously detected in the core of a galaxy.

Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy. The results appear in the 17 April 2015 issue of the journal Science.

ALMA and Hubble Telescope Combined ImageCredit: ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)A combined view of the Antennae Galaxies, taken by the ALMA radio telescope array and the Hubble Space Telescope.

An image released on October 2011 show the Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow).

The Rho Ophiuchi Nebula: A Clue to Origin of Earth's Key Molecules?    Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) a key molecule for both astronomers and chemists has been discovered close to the star Rho Ophiuchi, about 400 light-years away.

Rho Ophiuci, the region around the star Antares in Scorpius is one of the most colorful parts of the sky. The colors come from a mixture of emission and reflection nebulae.
