Exploring the universe from the ground
Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation describes how powerful telescopes on the ground are allowing scientists to study the universe far beyond what was once possible.
Ground-based observatories that are much too complex to transport to space are improving our understanding of black holes, cosmic rays, and gravitational waves.
The telescopes are helping experts explore black holes and making it possible to study the origins of the universe itself.
The National Science Foundation is the only U.S. agency that has funded the construction and operation of many of the largest and most sophisticated telescopes all over the world.
