A new planet-hunting space telescope just began its tour of duty

December 19th, 2019

Technology capable of observing worlds outside of our solar system is advancing at a breakneck pace.

SpaceX’s satellite horde is a nightmare for astronomers

November 19th, 2019

SpaceX has done a lot to help scientists over the years. It’s a business, first and foremost, but by lowering the bar for satellite launches it has facilitated research that might not otherwise have been possible. Unfortunately, the company’s Starlink project is doing the exact opposite by hindering the ability of astronomers to observe the …
