Adding Antarctica's largest astronomical telescope to the Event Horizon Telescope, a UA-led collaboration of astronomers has come closer to taking detailed images of the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way, up to its very edge, the "event horizon."
A team created by a new NASA initiative hopes to better understand the various components of exoplanets — planets around other stars — as well as how the parent stars and neighbor planets interact to support life.
An international team of astronomers has obtained the first results from the LEECH exoplanets survey, and the findings reveal new insights into the architecture of HR8799, a "scaled-up" version of our solar system 130 light-years from Earth.
UA professor Bruce Tabashnik has earned the 2015 Koffler Prize for Research/Scholarship/Creative Activity, which honors a dedicated scientist, scholar and collaborator whose mission is to “conduct research to improve food production while preserving environmental quality.”
"Symbiosis: An Exhibit of Biological Art," an event promoting the fusion of science and art, will feature work from more than 50 artists, including UA faculty, staff and students and members of the Tucson community.
