  1. NASA's Roman to Use Rare Events to Calculate Expansion Rate of Universe

    February 07, 2024Release ID: 2024-202

    Lensed supernovae offer precise, independent measurement

    A field of galaxies on the black background of space. Some are blue and white, others glow yellow. In the middle of the field is a cluster of five yellowish spiral and elliptical galaxies that form a foreground galaxy cluster. There is one spiral galaxy just below the cluster that has a yellow-whiteish core and is surrounded by diffuse blue material. This galaxy is outlined by a white box, and lines extend from the box’s corners that leads to an enlarged view at the right. Four arrows point at yellow faint points of light that circle the central glow of the galaxy.
  2. NASA's Roman to Search for Signs of Dark Matter Clumps

    January 17, 2024Release ID: 2024-201

    The Roman Space Telescope’s fine resolution and panoramic views will allow researchers to examine streams of stars pulled from globular star clusters.

    An illustration of the Andromeda galaxy takes up about one third of the view. A few irregularly shaped lines representing globular cluster streams are present. Some globular cluster streams are shown with gaps.

  5. How NASA’s Roman Telescope Will Scan for Showstopping Explosions

    November 03, 2022Release ID: 2022-049

    Roman is set to help researchers detect more kilonovae, helping us learn significantly more about these “all-star” smashups.

    Two bright blue circular shapes that appear to be joined are left of center. They are illustrations of neutron stars merging. Debris, which is also white and bright blue, emanates in misshapen patterns primarily from where they are joining at the center.
