Podcasts: Visual Descriptions
Narrated audio files of the visual descriptions of recent Chandra images released.
1.- Abell 1775
Galaxy clusters are the titans of the Universe. A new study using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory examines the repercussions after two galaxy clusters clashed.
2.- Northern Clump
Researchers have found a galaxy cluster acting like a passenger on what astronomers are calling an "intergalactic highway."
3.- MSH 15-52
Motions of a remarkable cosmic structure have been measured for the first time, using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.
4.- Super Flares
The largest survey ever of star-forming regions in X-rays outlines the link between very powerful flares and the impact they could have on planets in orbit around them.
5.- Galactic Center
A new panorama from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the MeerKAT radio telescope provides a stunning view of the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
6.- IC 443
Chandra's collection of 3D computer models and prints is now available on a new platform from the Smithsonian Institution. This will provide greater access to these resources for libraries, museums, scientists, and the public.
7.- Cassiopeia A
Astronomers have discovered an important type of titanium blasting out from the center of the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A, a result that could be a major advance in understanding how some massive stars explode.
In April 2019, scientists released the first image of a black hole in the galaxy M87 using the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). However, that remarkable achievement was just the beginning of the science story to be told.
Astronomers have detected X-rays from Uranus for the first time, using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.
10.- Sonification Collection
As part of our ongoing data sonification series, three new images have now been released.
Astronomers may have found the most distant supermassive black hole with a jet detected in X-rays using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.
12.- Supernova 1987A
Astronomers have found evidence for the existence of a neutron star at the center of Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A), which scientists have been seeking for over three decades.
13.- Sagittarius A East
Astronomers have found evidence for an unusual type of supernova near the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
14.- Triple Galaxy Mergers
When three galaxies collide, what happens to the central black holes growing at the cores of each?
In 2020, astronomers added a new member to an exclusive family of exotic objects with the discovery of a magnetar. New Chandra observations help support the idea that it is also a pulsar.
