Subaru Telescope Discovers a New Extremely Distant Solar System Object During Hunt for Planet X
October 3, 2018
Using Hyper Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope, astronomers have discovered a new object at the edge of our Solar System. The new extremely distant object far beyond Pluto has an orbit that supports the presence of an even-farther-out Super-Earth, or larger Planet X...
Cosmological Constraints from the First-Year Hyper Suprime-Cam
September 26, 2018
The deepest wide field map of the three-dimensional distribution of matter in the Universe ha s been made from the data taken with HSC on the Subaru Telescope. A team of scientists has used the gravitational distortion of images of about 10 million galaxies in the map, and made further constraints on the properties of the "dark energy" that dominates the energy density of the Universe...
