An emu in the sky over Paranal Sitting atop Cerro Paranal high above the Atacama Desert in Chile, two of the Very Large Telescope’s Unit Telescopes quietly bask in the starlight, observing the Milky Way as it arches over ESO's Paranal Observatory. Several interesting objects can be seen in this picture. Some of the most prominent are the two Magellanic Clouds — one Small (SMC), one Large (LMC) — which appear brightly in between the two telescopes. By contrast, the dark Coalsack Nebula...

M101 was also one of the original spiral nebulae observed by Lord Rosse’s large 19th century telescope, the Leviathan of Parsontown. M101 shares this modern telescopic field of view with spiky foreground stars within the Milky Way, an...

We’re going to blast an asteroid with a laser—for science!In September 2016, this Canadian space laser will be launched into space on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on a 2-year journey to meet up with the asteroid Bennu.Known as OLA (short for the OSIRIS-REx Laser Altimeter), the laser will make high-resolution, 3D map of Bennu’s surface—it will even show rocks and boulders on the asteroid’s surface. The map will be crucial to the mission’s success: it will help scientists pick a spot to collect a...
