Supersharp images from new VLT adaptive optics

18.07.2018 17:10

ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) has achieved first light with a new adaptive optics mode called laser tomography -- and has captured remarkably sharp test images of the planet Neptune and other objects. The MUSE instrument working with the GALACSI adaptive optics module, can now use this new technique to correct for turbulence at different altitudes in the atmosphere. It is now possible to capture images from the ground at visible wavelengths that are sharper than those from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

July 19, 2018 5:00 AM
Tomorrow marks the first time mankind set foot on alien terrain 49 years ago. Under the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (Nasa) Apollo space programme, 12 men walked on the Moon from 1969 to 1972. After the space shuttle era ended in 2011, Nasa is going old school with the Apollo-inspired Orion - the space agency’s most advanced spacecraft - with its sights set on sending humans to Mars and back.

Solar corona is more structured, dynamic than previously thought

18.07.2018 12:48

Scientists have discovered never-before-detected, fine-grained structures in the Sun's outer atmosphere, or corona. The team imaged this critical region in detail using sophisticated software techniques and longer exposures from the COR-2 camera on board NASA's Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory-A (STEREO-A).
