25th March, 2003: From the embers ... Science still flows from the halls of Mt Stromlo despite the devastating bushfires of January, 2003. ANU astronomers have played a crucial role in the first ever accurate measurement of the age of our universe. An international team of astronomers has announced that the universe started in a fiery explosion, thirteen thousand, seven hundred million years ago. "The human race lives on a tiny, insignificant planet in a remote corner of the universe," said team leader Dr Matthew Colless. "It is amazing that we should even think of trying to measure the size, shape and age of the whole universe. But what really beggars belief is that Australian astronomers, working at a burnt out observatory, should have played a pivotal role in solving this age old question". More details are now becoming apparent about the bushfire that struck the observatory. "It was no ordinary bushfire - it was a superheated firestorm," said Vince Ford, a research officer at the observatory, Australia's oldest and one of the largest. "If it was made of aluminium, it burned and blew away. Made of brass, it melted. Made of steel, it softened and drooped. So we're talking temperatures around 1,000°C to 1,200°C.

About Us Observing Sites Member Pages ... Observing Guide Have news to submit? email us here The mystery of why large features called supergranules move across the Sun's surface faster than the Sun rotates has been solved, according to a team of scientists using the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft. Instead of actually moving faster than the Sun, their apparent rapid rotation is an illusion generated by a pattern of activity, like fans doing the wave at a sporting event.

Sharpest ever view of the Sun
(from the Institute for Solar Physics The first images from the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope on the Canary Island of La Palma are presented in Nature on November 14. The images are the most detailed ever obtained of the Sun - among the new solar features uncovered are hitherto unknown phenomenae in sunspots.
The telescope was opened in March this year and is operated by the Institute for Solar Physics of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Its objective lens has a diameter of one meter and the telescope is designed to minimize problems from turbulent air that blur the images. The telescope tube is evacuated and a mirror in the beam adjusts its shape a thousand times a second to counteract the atmospheric blurring. This makes the images the sharpest ever of the Sun. The resolution achieved is 1,200 times better than normal eyesight (20/20 vision).

Dazzling Lava Flow on Jupiter's moon Io
December 17, 1999: During a recent close flyby of Jupiter's moon Io, NASA's Galileo spacecraft observed a fiery lava fountain shooting more than a mile above the moon's surface. The images, showing a curtain of lava erupting within a giant volcanic crater, will be unveiled today during the American Geophysical Union's fall meeting in San Francisco. Galileo took the pictures on Thanksgiving night, November 25. "We've finally caught a close-up of a massive volcanic eruption in action on Io," said Galileo project scientist Dr. Torrence Johnson of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA. "The erupting lava was so hot and bright, it over-exposed part of the camera picture and left a bright blur in the middle." These lava fountains were hot enough and tall enough to be observed by the NASA Infrared Telescope atop Mauna Kea, HI. By combining data from this telescope and Galileo observations, scientists have their best chance ever to pin down temperatures of the extremely hot lava on Io. The images show a region of giant calderas, or crater depressions, in Io's northern latitudes. They came from two of Galileo's onboard instruments the camera and near-infrared mapping spectrometer, which observes wavelengths invisible to the unaided eye.

UF Astronomers Complete First OSCIR Run on Gemini North [June 2000]
OSCIR, the visiting University of Florida 10um imager and spectrograph, has just completed its first commissioning run on Gemini North . This period saw several engineering firsts for Gemini: the first use of chopping synchronised to an instrument, the first test of the Visitor Instrument Interface (used to exchange commands and status information between OSCIR and the Telescope Control System), the first chopping and nodding of the telescope, the first attempts at simultaneous chopping and fast guiding and, of course, the first 10um images. For more info see Summary of OSCIR Engineering/Commissioning (June 2000) . For more on OSCIR see OSCIR Introduction .

  • Scientists arriving on the scene of a gamma ray burst, just moments after the explosion, have witnessed the death of a gigantic star and the birth of something monstrous in its place, quite possibly a brand-new, spinning black hole.
  • Gamma-Ray Telescope To Sleuth For Origin Of Elements - October 23, 2002
  • The International Gamma-ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL), a space-science mission led by the European Space Agency, launched successfully on October 17, 2002, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan aboard a Russian Proton rocket. The satellite will now undergo system checks for two months before attaining first light.

  • Bulk Source of Universe's Gamma Rays Identified, Scientists Say - August 13, 2002
  • Scientists at Columbia University and Barnard College have found that the majority of the gamma rays outside of our galaxy are likely emitted by galaxy clusters and other massive structures. This may resolve a 30-year-old mystery as to the origin of the Universe's gamma-ray background.
