Hubble Space Telescope Astrometry Science Team
See how astrometry, one of the oldest branches of astronomy, uses the Hubble Space Telescope, one of the newest tools of astronomy. Interrogate our home page to find out what we do, who we are, and what we've done. Look over our shoulder as we search for planets around a nearby star. We use the Fine Guidance Sensors aboard the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to measure star positions, study binary stars and study stellar motions. Primarily, stellar positions yield parallaxes which provide information on distance. The distances to nearby stars calibrate the entire astronomical distance scale. Monitoring star position may reveal previously unseen companions. We search for planets near Proxima Centauri and Barnard's Star. We also work to tie the HIPPARCOS reference frame to an extragalactic (non-rotating) reference frame. We study binary stars unresolvable using ground-based techniques. We inspect stars to determine whether or not they are binary. We use the Planetary Camera to obtain images of stars in globular clusters. The precision with which we can measure positions is so high, that after 3-5 years a second image will show motions of stars in clusters 6 kpc distant. - Categories: dept optical

INACTIVE LINK ? - 256 --- McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences (MCSS)
The McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences exists to encourage scientists to work together on research problems that span or transcend traditional departmental lines. This is done through formal programs such as regular colloquia, and informally through the common bond of fellowship in the Center. Space science, broadly defined as the study of the universe and our relationship to it, is simply too vast an area to be the province of a single discipline. Understanding the formation of the solar system is equally the task of the chemist who measures isotope effects in meteorites, the astronomer who observes planetary atmospheres or interstellar dust, and the theoretical physicist who studies gravitational collapse. Faculty and students of the Center thus belong to one of the basic, traditional science departments, yet overlap strongly in their research work. - Categories: dept space

McGill University - Earth and Planetary Science
The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences of McGill University have available an interactive Atlas of impact craters and coronae structures of Venus. The Face of Venus, enables browsers to interactively access a geographical database of these features. Craters or coronae can be selected by size, type, and name status to create user-generated maps of the selected features, as well as a text listing. A dynamic ISMAP is created with clickable areas where users can obtain more information about any feature viewed on the map, or directly from the text list. Users may also elect to examine the distribution of their selected features by using hierarchical cluster analysis to generate a dendrogram of any groupings. - Categories: dept planetary

Stichting ASTRonomisch Onderzoek in Nederland / Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy (ASTRON, Dwingeloo)
The Stichting ASTRonomisch Onderzoek in Nederland(Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy) is a government funded institute with a mission of developing and maintaining innovative instrumentation and observing facilities for astronomers in the Netherlands.
Our strategy to do this is to provide front-line observing facilities for Dutch astronomers across a broad range of frequencies and techniques.
To this end, we built and operate the radio telescope at Westerbork, one of the largest and most sensitive radio telescopes in the world. We also develop advanced instrumentation for studying the content, structure and evolution of the Universe, and for exploring exotic physical phenomena that cannot be studied in the laboratory.
Our ambition for the future is to help develop the technologies necessary for a new generation of sensitive radio telescopes, capable of detecting objects over the entire past history of the Cosmos. - Categories: dept
