A striking new Gemini Observatory image of the Owl Nebula, a prominent object visible in the northern sky, was released today (March 25, 2010) as the culmination of a nationwide student essay contest in Canada.
Barry Rothberg and Jacqueline Fischer of the Naval Research Lab find that IR-luminous mergers appear younger and less massive in the near-IR but indistinguishable from old, massive ellipticals at optical wavelengths.
An international team provides insight into the consequences of galaxy-scale outflows using new observations with NIFS on Gemini North.
The staff of Gemini Observatory extends its deepest sympathies to the families of those who suffered losses or are displaced due to the major magnitude 8.8 earthquake that struck southern Chile early Saturday morning, February 27, 2010.
A dramatic new image from the Gemini North telescope illustrates the dynamic and sometimes violent process of star birth. It also demonstrates the capabilities of new filters available to researchers using the GMOS.
Observations at the Gemini Observatory provide convincing new evidence that stellar heavyweights may be born in much the same manner as lightweights like our Sun.
Using the Gemini South telescope in Chile, astronomers at UCLA have found dusty evidence for the formation of young, rocky planets around a star some 500 light years distant.
Gemini science highlights from the 215th American Astronomical Society Meeting in Washington DC.
Using adaptive optics to remove atmospheric blurring, Gemini Observatory released an image showing previously hidden forensic secrets at the ballistic core of the Homunculus Nebula.
Gemini encourages readers to access the publication electronically as part of Gemini's initiative to find new ways to operate "Greener."
>New results from Gemini NIFS observations show the early life of a distant galaxy, building its first generation of stars.
An international team has used the adaptive optics facility ALTAIR with NIFS on the Gemini North Telescope to measure black hole masses in two normal galaxies
The well-known starburst galaxy M82 is a popular target for telescopes of all sizes, and now an international team used GMOS on the Gemini North telescope to help understand the complex dynamics of its galactic wind.
Australian high school student Daniel Tran won the Australian Gemini Partner Office imaging contest with the image of NGC 6751.
As part of on-going acceptance testing, FLAMINGOS-2 (Florida Multi-object Infrared Grism Observing Spectrograph) obtained first light images on the Gemini South telescope.
We found ourselves in the Mataveri airport, the most isolated in the world, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, 3,700 kilometers from continental Chile and nearly equally distant from Gemini North and Gemini South telescopes.
While far from a tropical rain forest, the equatorial region of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, has recently displayed tantalizing evidence that the parched, dry, ultra-frigid desert can support large-scale storms.
Looking almost 11 billion years into the past, astronomers have measured the motions of stars for the first time in a very distant galaxy.
Jupiter is sporting a glowing bruise after getting unexpectedly whacked by a small solar system object, according to astronomers using the Gemini North telescope on Mauna Kea in Hawai`i
An international team of astronomers used GMOS on the Gemini North telescope to observe 16 massive star clusters in the nearest pair of merging galaxies,
