Light Beyond the Bulb: Over and Beyond the Rainbow
Light Beyond the Bulb: Over and Beyond the Rainbow
While scientists and philosophers have tried to figure out exactly what light is for millennia, it's only been in the past several hundred years or so that we've really started to figure it out. (2015-07-01)
Podcasts: Neutron Stars/X-ray Binaries

Recent discoveries and updates of the Chandra mission in video and audio formats.

GRS 1915+105 in 60 Seconds (01-29-2011)
GRS 1915+105, or GRS 1915 for short, is a special system. Not only does it contain a black hole some 14 times more massive than the Sun in orbit with a companion star, it also has a heartbeat.

The Crab Nebula in 60 Seconds (03-31-2008)
In 1054 A.D., a star's death in the constellation Taurus was observed on Earth. Now, almost a thousand years later, a superdense neutron star left behind by the explosion is spewing out a blizzard of extremely high-energy particles into the expanding debris field known as the Crab Nebula.

The Exotic World of Neutron Stars (04-30-2007)
Neutron stars are created when a massive star runs out of fuel and collapses. As the star collapses, the density becomes so immense that protons and electrons are squeezed tightly together to form neutrons. The end result is a star only 20 km across but weighing 1 1/2 times more than our sun and made up mostly of neutrons.
