Alan Alda visited SLAC as part of a two-day workshop on communicating science hosted by the Kavli Institute for Particle Physics and Astrophysics (KIPAC).
The Kavli Foundation was presented the “Shokumon Award” by the University of Tokyo.
Researchers find evidence that the yellow supergiant star found at the location of supernova SN 2011dh was its progenitor.
The Hubble Ultra Deep Field image of a small area of space in the constellation Fornax contains about 5,500 galaxies.
When the Dark Energy Camera (DECam) opened its giant eye last week more than 120 members of the DES eagerly awaited the first snapshots.
