ALMA Radio Telescope – The Most Professional Telescope of the World

The most powerful radio telescope of the world will pull back the curtain on the planet obscuring birth. During last two years, the scientists added some antennas and resolution to the Atacama Large Millimater Array (ALMA). The ALMA radio telescope will start its operation in the next week. Last year the AlMA measured the orbits, which moves around the star, and found that the orbits has less dimensions, than the scientists thought. There is two methods for telescopes to find a new exoplanets: one- the gravitational wobble, second- changes of brightness during the passing directly in front of its star. ALMA radio telescope will announce the converting of cold gas into clouds in the protostars. The secret of 1,3 billion facility’s solution are height and distance. Facilities of ALMA sit on a 5000 meter high above the sea. The astronomers, working in ALMA facility at 2900 meters, will use oxygen. The ALMA system include approximately 50 antennas. The system of operating is following: the antennas snag an astronomical signals from the sky, combine all the results in the computer, for getting final information regarding the place, form where they snag the signal.This system allows ALMA not only to observe the young planets, but also pin down life – building block in gas clouds.

Astronomers are witnessing Planet Forming Inside Gas Cloud Surrounding the Star HD 10056

HD 10056 is the young star which is near to the Earth about 335 light years. The astronomers, who are studying the HD 10056 star, think, that they are witnessing the birth of a giant from gas. This giant will be three times larger than Jupiter. If this discovery is confirmed, it will change the understanding of people, regarding the comparing the theories of scientists, with direct observations of new planets.

Spitzer Finds Galaxy with Split Personality

While some galaxies are rotund and others are slender disks like our spiral Milky Way, new observations from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope show that the Sombrero galaxy is both. The galaxy, which is a round elliptical galaxy with a thin disk embedded inside, is one of the first known to exhibit characteristics of the two different types. As said Dimitri Gadotti of the European Southern Observatory in Chile the Sombrero is more complex than previously thought.
