The clearest and most detailed images of the Sun have been captured by the largest telescope in the world. Just-released first images and videos from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope, which involves University of Warwick scientists, reveal unprecedented detail of the Sun’s surface, with experts saying it will enable a new era of solar science and a leap forward in understanding the Sun and its impacts on our planet.
A ‘great’ space weather super-storm large enough to cause significant disruption to our electronic and networked systems occurred on average once in every 25 years according to a new joint study by the University of Warwick and the British Antarctic Survey.
When it comes to the biggest and brightest explosions seen in the Universe, University of Warwick astronomers have found that it takes two stars to make a gamma-ray burst.
Using asteroseismology, a team including an astronomer from the University of Warwick, revised the parameters for two red-giant stars known to host exoplanets, and for one of them found that the planet should not exist in its current location based on current theories.
A leading-edge new telescope instrument, designed and built by an international collaboration including the University of Warwick, has today (28 October) aimed its 5,000 fibre-optic eyes at the night sky for the first time.
