The James Webb Space Telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a large (6.6 m), cold (<50 K), infrared (IR)-optimized space observatory that will be launched early in the next decade into orbit around the second Earth–SunExpand
An unusually massive stellar black hole in the Galaxy
TLDR
A direct measurement of the orbital period and mass function of GRS1915+105 is reported, which allow us to deduce a mass of 14 ± 4 M[circdot] for the black hole. Expand
IRAS 05358+3543: Multiple outflows at the earliest stages of massive star formation
We present a high-angular-resolution molecular line and millimeter continuum study of the massive star formation site IRAS 05358+3543. Observations with the Plateau de Bure Interferometer in CO 1{0,Expand
MEMBERSHIP OF THE ORION NEBULA POPULATION FROM THE CHANDRA ORION ULTRADEEP PROJECT
The Chandra Orion Ultradeep project (COUP) observation described in a companion paper by Getman et al. provides an exceptionally deep X-ray survey of the Orion Nebula Cluster and associated embeddedExpand
High resolution near-infrared imaging of the trapezium: A stellar census
We present high spatial resolution (0.35 and 0.65 arcsec full width at half maximum (FWHM)) near-infrared images of the central 0.2x0.2 pc of the Trapezium Cluster in the Orion Nebula, centered onExpand
Identification of the donor in the X-ray binary GRS 1915+105
We report on the results of medium-resolution spectroscopy of GRS 1915+105 in the near-infrared H and K band using the 8 m VLT at ESO. We clearly identify absorption bandheads from 12 CO and 13 CO.Expand
Disks, Microjets, Windblown Bubbles, and Outflows in the Orion Nebula*
New deep narrowband images of the Orion Nebula obtained with WFPC2 on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and spectra taken with the HIRES spectrometer at the Keck Observatory are presented. We reportExpand
BINARY STARS IN THE ORION TRAPEZIUM CLUSTER CORE
We have obtained high angular resolution (013 FWHM) near-infrared images of the central ~40'' × 40'' of the Trapezium cluster, using a speckle holography technique that we describe in detail. AExpand
HST photometry of the trapezium cluster
We have obtained images of 11 fields in the Trapezium cluster with the Planetary Camera (PC) of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in order to extend Herbig & Terndrup's (1986) study of this prototype,Expand
Keck Spectra of Brown Dwarf Candidates and a Precise Determination of the Lithium Depletion Boundary in the Alpha Persei Open Cluster
We have identified twenty-seven candidate very low mass members of the relatively young Alpha Persei open cluster from a six square degree CCD imaging survey. Based on their I magnitudes and theExpand
