Hotspots in an Active Galactic Nucleussu201641 | www.cfa.harvard.edu/

The nucleus of a so-called "active" galaxy contains a massive black hole that is vigorously accreting material.
As a result, the nucleus often ejects bipolar jets of rapidly moving charged particles that radiate brightly at
many wavelengths, in particular radio wavelengths. Active galaxies display a range of dramatically different
properties, and the ones that are bright in the radio can beam as much as one trillion solar luminosities of
radiation into space at those wavelengths.

Steering the Voyager Golden Record back to Earth

As the Kickstarter campaign to release a 40th anniversary box set draws to its conclusion, exceeding its target five-fold and raising $1.2million
at time of publication, we caught up with David Pescovitz to talk about why the Voyager Golden Record still resonates with so many people.

Celebrate the Large and Long Program! - Gemini Observatory

The Large and Long Program (LLP) is one of five observing modes Gemini offers to users of our telescopes. These five modes categorize projects
based on length and weather conditions required for the observations. Classically, Gemini accepts proposals on a six month basis and awarded
recipients complete their observations within that given semester. Large and Long Programs, on the other hand, provide more flexibility for long
term research and last anywhere from one to three years. This extended time frame promotes collaboration across communities and produces significant
and high-impact science. Here, we ask current Large and Long Programs to share a little about their research and experience with Gemini Observatory.

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter views Schiaparelli landing site / ExoMars / Space Science / Our Activities / ESA
NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has identified new markings on the surface of the Red Planet that are believed
to be related to ESA’s ExoMars Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing technology demonstrator module.

The universe is expanding at an accelerating rate—or is it?

Five years ago, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three astronomers for their discovery, in the late 1990s,
that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace.

Their conclusions were based on analysis of Type Ia supernovae - the spectacular thermonuclear explosion of dying stars -
picked up by the Hubble space telescope and large ground-based telescopes. It led to the widespread acceptance of the idea
that the universe is dominated by a mysterious substance named 'dark energy' that drives this accelerating expansion.

Now, a team of scientists led by Professor Subir Sarkar of Oxford University's Department of Physics has cast doubt on this
standard cosmological concept. Making use of a vastly increased data set - a catalogue of 740 Type Ia supernovae, more than
ten times the original sample size - the researchers have found that the evidence for acceleration may be flimsier than
previously thought, with the data being consistent with a constant rate of expansion.
