  1. Roman Science Operations Center Newsletter

    June 2024

    Roman’s Wide Field Instrument is completing its thermal vacuum tests and will join the telescope at Goddard later this summer. It’s time to plan the community-defined surveys, including a Galactic Plane General Astrophysics Survey, and you can help! A recent STScI newsletter summarizes how you can get involved. Members of the SOC will be at the summer AAS in Madison, and in July (9-12), please consider joining the next Roman Science Conference at IPAC. We hope to see you in person soon.

    An illustration of a star being torn apart by a black hole. To the right of center, there is a black sphere representing a black hole, surrounded by many thick wisps of light. To the left of it, there is a fuzzy, bright white object representing a star. The star has a tail of gas coming off its right, which is brightest near the star, but becomes grayer further away. This tail flows into the black hole’s right side and swirls around the black hole in a horizontal disk. The disk is thicker toward its center and more diffuse farther away. Material in the disk also appears to wrap around the top of the black hole. Above and below the black hole, there are purple rays of light that extend upward and downward in two broad cones. This scene sits amid a black backdrop of space with many dim, white stars in the background.
