A few of the Gemini Observatory's most spectacular recent results:
- Sticking Together in the Outer Solar System
Pairs of Kuiper Belt objects observed by Gemini's GMOS camera suggest that these large bodies in the outer reaches of the Solar System may have formed much faster than previously suspected.
- Befuddling Bang
Gemini captures a stellar explosion, which challenges our understanding of how stars blow up.
- Diving Into The Lagoon
The GMOS camera on Gemini South explores the early phases of stellar life in the Lagoon Nebula.
- Stellar Barbecues
Gemini's GNIRS instrument helps identify a low-mass star barely hotter than a typical barbecue.
