It is with regret that we announce that Sir Bernard Lovell OBE FRS died on the 6th August 2012 at the age of 98.
Planck unveils wonders of the Universe
The first results from ESA's Planck satellite have been released, looking at the coolest objects within our Universe.
Radio eye on the universe
The 76-m Lovell Telescope is the world's third largest, fully-steerable radio telescope and has stood proudly over the plains of Cheshire since 1957.
This dramatic image is the first to be produced by e-MERLIN, a powerful new array of radio telescopes linked across the UK.
An International radiotelescope for the 21st century
Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics hosts the global headquarters of the world's next generation radio telescope, the €1.5bn Square Kilometre Array (SKA).
The Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and the Northwest European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) today confirmed funding of £3.1 million to kick-start the development of a new Science Discovery Centre.
We study the chemical elements found in molecular gas clouds.
A team of astronomers and engineers at the Atacama Large Millimeter Array have made the first observations linking radio signals from two telescopes in the array.
Formed in supernova explosions following the collapse of massive evolved stars, pulsars make superb cosmic clocks which are used to study some of the most extreme physics in the universe.
The hunt for Earth-2
This is an artists impression of OGLE-2005-BLG-390, a 5 Earth mass planet discovered using the microlensing effect. Find out more about our research on extra-solar planets
Active Galaxies are like normal galaxies except their central region is very bright over some or all of the electromagnetic spectrum.
At Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics we study fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, allowing us to probe the Universe at early times and make deductions about fundamental processes in cosmology.
Our nearest star may be a familiar sight in the daytime sky but it still holds many mysteries. At Jodrell Bank we study the complex interactions between plasma and magnetic fields in the solar corona.
Engineers at Jodrell Bank Observatory needed more than just a jack and a brace when a steel tyre on the famous Lovell radio telescope cracked.
We have fully funded STFC fellowships to support PhD students in any area of astrophysics research starting in September. Students interested in being considered for one of these fellowships should apply as soon as possible.
Having trouble finding the Andromeda Galaxy? Wondering where Jupiter is? Ian Morison describes what you can see in the UK night sky this month.
The Control Room is where the duty controller takes responsibility for the giant 76m Lovell Telescope and our other telescopes. Take a virtual behind-the-scenes tour of the observatory.
A twice-monthly podcast covering all aspects of astronomy including the latest news, what you can see in the current night sky, and interviews with astronomers.
In space nobody can hear you scream but that doesn't mean it is totally quiet. As mentioned on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme, Jodrell Bank's Dr Tim O'Brien explored the sounds of the cosmos on an episode of the Jodcast.
Come down to Earth from space and enjoy the Jodrell Bank nature experience. The 35 acre arboretum at the Visitor Centre will open your eyes to the environment and the world of trees.
