Most Powerful Eruption In The Universe Discovered
Astronomers have found the most powerful eruption seen in the Universe using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. A supermassive black hole generated this eruption by growing at a remarkable rate. This discovery shows the enormous appetite of large black holes, and the profound impact they have on their surroundings - Chandra X-ray Observatory Center

Hubble: Keep Both Options Open
Even though astronomers argue the Hubble Space Telescope requires a manned servicing mission (or something similar) to make necessary repairs, yesterday, NASA approved MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA) of Brampton, Ontario, to pursue a design concept for a possible robotic mission - Astronomy
Astronomy Consortium Chooses Haleakala As Site For The Advanced Technology Solar Telescope
Today, the world's largest instrument for studying the sun and its complex magnetic field, the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST) is one step closer to reality, and to a location on Haleakala, Maui - University of Hawaii Instutute for Astronomy
