Scientists offer road map to improve environmental observations in the Indian Ocean

Artist’s illustration of the Indian Ocean Observing System and its societal applications. IndOOS data support research to advance scientific knowledge about the Indian Ocean circulation, climate variability and change, and biogeochemistry, as well as societal applications due to its contribution to operational analyses and forecasts.

Most accurate map of our galaxy pinpoints 1.8 billion cosmic objects

Astronomers were hit Thursday (Dec. 3) with a huge wave of data from the European Space Agency’s Gaia space observatory. Those researchers can now explore the best-yet map of the Milky Way, with detailed information on the positions, distances and motion of 1.8 billion cosmic objects, to help us better understand our place in the […]

Earth faster, closer to black hole in new map of galaxy

Position and velocity map of the Milky Way Galaxy. Arrows show position and velocity data for the 224 objects used to model the Milky Way Galaxy. The solid black lines show the positions of the Galaxy’s spiral arms. The colors indicate groups of objects belonging the same arm. The background is a simulation image. Credit: […]
