Perfect colors, captured with one ultra-thin lens

Ordinary refractive lenses

Developed from a prototype device demonstrated in 2012, it is an ultra-thin, flat lens made of a glass substrate and tiny, light-concentrating silicon antennas. Light shining on it bends instantaneously, rather than gradually bending while passing through. The bending effects can be designed in advance, by an algorithm, and

In a First, Astronomers Catch a Multiple Star System in the Process of Forming

This week an international team of astronomers reports the first multiple-star system to be observed during the earliest stage of formation. This finding supports model predictions about how two- and three-star systems form by

Gigantic ring system around J1407b much larger, heavier than Saturn’s

Astronomer Eric Mamajek at the University of Rochester and his co-author from the Leiden Observatory, The Netherlands, have discovered that the ring system that they see eclipse the very young Sun-like star J1407 is of enormous proportions, much larger and heavier than the ring system of

Planets outside our solar system more hospitable to life than we'd thought

A study by astrophysicists at the University of Toronto suggests that exoplanets – planets outside our solar system – are more likely to have liquid water and be more habitable than we thought

Astronomers discover a replica solar system

Scientists have located an ancient solar system, dating back to the dawn of the galaxy, which appears to be a miniature version of the inner planets in our own solar system

Galactic ‘hailstorm’ in the early Universe

Astronomers have been able to peer back to the young Universe to determine how quasars – powered by supermassive black holes with the mass of a billion suns – form and shape the evolution of galaxies

Astronomers use vanishing neutron star to measure space-time warp

In an interstellar race against time, astronomers have measured the space-time warp in the gravity of a binary star and determined the mass of a neutron star
