A team of astronomers collected deep long-slit spectroscopy for a sample of eight nearby spiral galaxies using the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph (GMOS) on the Gemini North 8-meter telescope.
Stuart Ryder, Australian Gemini Scientist at the AAO, and colleagues from Europe and South Africa have used the Gemini North telescope and its laser guide star adaptive optics system to reveal a supernova (SN 2008cs) in a galaxy.
Dr. Timothy Beers of Michigan State University has been appointed to Chair the Gemini Science Committee starting on February 1, 2009.
The Gemini MICHELLE data of planetary nebula NGC 7027 gives us a peek into the future of our own Sun.
The Subaru and Gemini Observatories are pleased to announce a jointly sponsored science meeting that will be held at Kyoto University, Kyoto Japan, May 18-21, 2009.
A recent optical spectroscopic study led by Guillermo Bosch et al. used GMOS-South to reveal that a surprisingly high fraction (>50%) of the stars in the cluster NGC 2070 are binary.
Nathan Smith et al. have used PHOENIX on Gemini South to study the geometry and kinematics of the active circumstellar envelopes in the supergiant stars Betelgeuse and VY Canis Majoris.
An international team used the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph (GMOS) on Gemini North to discover the most distant known symbiotic star.
Astronomers using the Gemini North telescope and W.M. Keck Observatory on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea have obtained the first-ever direct images identifying a multi-planet system around a normal star.
Gemini Observatory discovery images of a planetary system using the Altair adaptive optics system on the Gemini North telescope with the Near-Infrared Imager (NIRI)
A group of astronomers using a battery of 8-meter telescopes, including Gemini North and South, have discovered a small pair of gravitationally bound Kuiper Belt objects with an enormous separation.
An international team observed the supernova and followed its evolution between days 86-493 after the explosion with an array of telescopes including the Gemini North telescope (using the Near Infrared Imager NIRI).
Astronomers have unveiled what is likely the first picture of a planet around a normal star similar to the Sun using Gemini North telescope.
The research shows that the famous nebulosity around the star Eta Carinae contains extremely fast-moving filaments of material that had not been seen before, and are not explained by current theories.
Optical spectroscopy from the Gemini telescopes has revealed a relatively uncommon type of asteroid in the main-belt for the first time.
Gemini North telescope facility on Mauna Kea underwent a major 20-day scheduled shutdown, during which the 8-meter primary mirror received new silver coating.
Anil C. Seth and collaborators demonstrate that the massive nuclear stellar cluster at the core of the spiral galaxy NGC 4244 is strongly rotating based on NIFS plus AO observations at Gemini North.
In mid June 2008, the 500th refereed Gemini paper was accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal, one of the main refereed astronomical journals.
The Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS) had ambitious goals from the start - to produce a definitive sample of distant supernovae for cosmology. The 5-year survey began in 2003 and the final supernova spectrum was recently taken at Gemini North.
A team has made the first bulge stellar velocity dispersion measurement of a luminous quasar host with the Gemini North Laser Guide Star adaptive optics system.
