In this episode of The Debrief, we speak to two astronomers helping to create the most detailed map ever of the universe.
By observing the universe at low radio frequencies, astronomers can now specify with greater accuracy the number of new stars being formed in the early universe, establish a correlation between the brightness of galaxies on the low radio images and the rate of star formation as well as analyse emissions from around massive black holes or the collision of galaxies.
Polish astronomers from the Mikolaj Kopernik University in Torun and the University of Warsaw have joined Europe's biggest network of coordinated astronomical research.
Titled ‘A Northern Winter Night’ the stunning photograph by Łukasz Żak from Wołomin shows a 360 degree panorama of the snow covered ground with tall trees encircling the nebulae of the northern winter Milky Way.
It’s that time of year again for The Debrief Christmas Special! Hosted by John Beauchamp with guest Ed Wight, Managing Editor of The First News.
Polish astronomers will receive almost EUR 14 million in a grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for astronomical research and to build a telescope in Chile, the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) has announced.
To locate the free-floating planet, a team of international astronomers led by those from the University of Warsaw’s OGLE team at the Astronomical Observatory used an astronomical phenomenon called gravitational microlensing.
The two so-called GW190521 black holes, one 66 times the mass of the Sun, the other 85 times the mass, merged to form the new massive black hole, the first time such large black holes have been observed either by gravity or by electromagnetic observations.
The 47-year-old building is the first modernist building in the city to receive official protection.
The information from the satellites could help scientists understand how elements are spread across the galaxy.
