    BlackGEM telescope array

    When neutron stars and black holes collide, gravitational waves are released and a hot luminous ring of gas is created. BlackGEM is a series of telescopes that helps researchers to more accurately determine where a collision has occurred.

    MAGALOPS

    Researchers from the MAGALOPS research project will measure the Milky Way’s magnetic field by using the optical polarisation of starlight. The final model will help in understanding the interplay between the magnetic field, gas and dust.

    Polarisation around Black Holes

    The Event Horizon Telescope is a global effort to construct an Earth-sized virtual radio telescope array that can be used for making pictures and films of two neighbouring supermassive black holes. Detailed theoretical models of black holes will now be needed to correctly interpret these new...
