Tour of AM CVn

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
In the middle of the twentieth century, an unusual star was spotted in the constellation of Canes Venatici.

A Tour of M106

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
NGC 4258, also known as Messier 106, is a spiral galaxy like the Milky Way. This galaxy is famous, however, for something that our Galaxy doesn't have - two extra spiral arms that glow in X-ray, optical, and radio light.

Tour of Abell 1033

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
Understanding how clusters grow is critical to tracking how the Universe itself evolves over time. Learn more about Abell 1033: http://chandra.si.edu/photo/2015/a1033/ Check out more Chandra Podcasts: http://chandra.si.edu/resources/podcasts/sd.html

Tour of WASP-18

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
A new study using data from Chandra X-ray Observatory has shown that a planet is making the star that it orbits act much older than it actually is.

A Tour of M51

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
Like the Milky Way, the Whirlpool is a spiral galaxy with spectacular arms of stars and dust.

A Tour of Perseus

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
A team of astronomers has used Chandra X-ray Observatory and XMM-Newton to study a large group of galaxy clusters with a surprising result.

A Tour of Jupiter

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
A new study using data from Chandra X-ray Observatory has shown that storms from the Sun are triggering auroras in X-ray light.

Tour of Sagittarius A

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
One of the biggest mysteries in astrophysics today is figuring out where mysterious particles called neutrinos come from.

A Tour of E0102

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
Neutron stars are the ultra dense cores of massive stars that collapse and undergo a supernova explosion. This neutron star is located within the remains of a supernova — known as 1E 0102.2-7219 (E0102 for short) — in the Small Magellanic Cloud, located 200,000 light years from Earth. E0102's neutron star is different from most others because it has both a low magnetic field and does not have a star in orbit around it. Its remnant is also unusual because it contains high levels of oxygen like two other well-known supernova remnants, Cassiopeia A and Puppis A. These oxygen-rich supernova remnants are important for understanding how massive stars fuse lighter elements into heavier ones before they explode. Future observations of E0102 at X-ray, optical, and radio wavelengths should help astronomers understand the origin of this lonely neutron star.

The Senses: Descriptive Audio Tour

Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum
A museum gallery is filled with large, undulating partitions composed of colorful threads. Through the nearest partition, a man can be seen leaning forward to smell scented objects housed in glass domes. A sign on this partition reads "Inclusive Environments".Now available on Soundcloud, Ellen Lupton, co-curator of the exhibition The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, provides a descriptive audio tour through two dozen projects in the exhibition, with step-by-step guidance for visitors with blindness or low vision. Approximately 30 minutes. (SoundCloud is accessible via VoiceOver.) TRANSCRIPT PART ONE: GETTING STARTED Welcome to Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design...

A European Tour on Bicycle

Smithsonian Institution Libraries
While browsing the Collections Search Center for an interesting trade catalog to highlight on the Blog, I came across this one from 1894. The only illustration in the entire catalog is on the front cover but that’s not what caught my eye. Instead, it was two words in the first paragraph: “photographic souvenirs.” The catalog more »
