New Study of Virgo Galaxy Cluster

Image credit: ESO
New observations from the Japanese 8-m Subaru telescope and the ESO Very Large telescope (VLT) have revealed new details in the Virgo Galaxy cluster - located 50 million light years away. One insight is that massive young stars seem to be able to form in isolation, far away from the brighter parts of galaxies.

The Hubble Space Telescope has provided the clearest view of nearby quasar 3C 273 ever taken in visible light. The image was taken by using the newly installed Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), which is able to block the brightest light to show the dimmer parts of the object. Features in the Galaxy surrounding the central quasar are clearly visible.

Rosetta Will Have to Be Dismantled

Image credit: ESA
Now that Rosetta has been delayed indefinitely from its original mission to visit Comet Wirtanen, technicians have to dismantle the spacecraft and return each scientific instrument to the researchers who built them. The mission was cancelled because a recent report indicated that the Ariane 5 rocket was unsafe to launch. Rosetta's original target was Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 3, then Comet Wirtanen, so now planners are considering comets Finlay, Brooks 2 and Wild 2. There's no scheduled launch date, though.
