Tour: NASA's Chandra Opens Treasure Trove of Cosmic Delights

Humanity has "eyes" that can detect all different types of light through telescopes around the globe and a fleet of observatories in space. From radio waves to gamma rays, this multiwavelength approach to astronomy is crucial to getting a complete understanding of objects in space.



Tour: Kepler's Supernova Remnant

A new sequence of Chandra images, taken over nearly a decade and a half, captures motion in Kepler's supernova remnant.

A Tour of a New Galactic Center Adventure in Virtual Reality

By combining data from telescopes with supercomputer simulations and virtual reality (or "VR"), a new visualization allows you to experience 500 years of cosmic evolution around the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.

A Tour of X-rays From a Newborn Star Hint at Our Sun's Earliest Days

By detecting an X-ray flare from a very young star using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, researchers have reset the timeline for when stars like the Sun start blasting high-energy radiation into space.

A Tour of a Star Survives Close Call with a Black Hole

Astronomers may have discovered a new kind of survival story: a star that had a brush with a giant black hole and lived to tell the tale through exclamations of X-rays.

A Tour of the Universe's Expansion May Not Be The Same In All Directions

One of the fundamental ideas of cosmology is that everything looks the same in all directions if you look over large enough distances. A new study using data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA's XMM-Newton is challenging that basic notion.
