Search results for stars

NASA is poised to send larger and larger telescopes into space over the next couple of decades and a team of researchers at MIT is working out how to use CubeSats to keep them fixed on target. Using lasers, the bread-loaf sized spacecraft will serve as artificial guide stars to act as points of reference and make sure the giant scopes are tracking and focusing properly... Continue Reading
Big names like Canon and Nikon have been making astro versions of their cameras for a good while, but none can lay claim to being the world's smallest astronomy camera. In 2016, Singapore's TinyMOS made just such a claim with it's palm-sized Tiny01. Now the company is back with an even smaller device called the Nano1...

Before we get started, it’s essential to understand that astrophotography takes time and practice in order to achieve good results, so don’t get frustrated if you don’t nail it on the first go. When it comes to photographing the night sky there isn’t an exact setting which is going to achieve the same results across the board. This is due to the amount atmospheric light wh
Consumers in the United States spent over $250 million on Nintendo products from Thanksgiving through to Cyber Monday, and the Switch was the star of the show.  ...
This week's highlights include the top news from Blizzcon around Diablo and other devilish titles, Toby Fox's Deltarune & his radical transparency, and Marty O'Donnell talking 'The Music Of The Spheres'. ...
A new instrument has been installed onto an Australian telescope, to aid in the search for Earth-like exoplanets. Dubbed Veloce, the instrument is designed to look out for the signature wobble of a star caused by the gravitational tug of orbiting planets, and it specializes in red dwarfs – the most common type of star in the universe...

A white dwarf is one of the last stages of life for stars of a certain size, and it's all downhill from there – with no new source of energy, the object will gradually fade away into obscurity. But supercomputer simulations run by astronomers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) suggest that these dying stars could be reignited by a close encounter with an enigmatic class of bl
To prove that its Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 and the Symphonia Grande Sonnerie 1860 wristwatches weren't a pair of flukes, Vacheron Constantin has released its latest bit of haute horologie, Les Cabinotiers minute repeater tourbillon sky chart. A product of the manufacturer's Les Cabinotiers department, the dress timepiece sports a minute repeater function and localized
In the hunt for extraterrestrial life, it makes sense to look for places that have similar conditions to Earth. But the majority of stars in our Milky Way aren't Sun-like – they're the smaller and cooler red dwarfs. To determine how well these stars might be able to support life, A NASA program is using Hubble to monitor their flare activity, and the first results don't paint a positive pi
The University of Stuttgart's ICD Aggregate Pavilion 2018 is made from over 120,000 recycled plastic spiked stars that create a self-supporting structure bonded only by friction. Read more
