  • Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Press Releases

  • The Sloan Digital Sky Survey-III (SDSS-III) released the largest digital color image of the sky ever made at the 217th American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting held on January 9-13, 2011 in Seattle, WA. AAS Press

  • The SDSS-III collaboration announced on January 11, 2011 the publication of Data Release Eight (DR8), which can be found at www.sdss3.org/dr8. The SDSS-III is managed by the Astrophysical Research Consortium for the Participating Institutions of the SDSS-III Collaboration, including JINA Participation Group.

  • The Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics (KICP) at the University of Chicago, and Adler Planetarium hosted the 10th Great Lakes Cosmology Workshop (GLCW X) from June 14th - 16th, 2010 in Chicago, IL. As is tradition, the Workshop provided a forum for advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and young faculty from the Great Lakes region working on all areas of cosmology and particle-astrophysics.

  • A new release of the Quasar Catalog complete through DR7. Click here.

  • The Sloan Digital Sky Survey will map one-quarter of the entire sky and perform a redshift survey of galaxies, quasars and stars. The DR7 is the seventh major data release and provides images, imaging catalogs, spectra, and redshifts for download. It is the third and final data release of SDSS-II, an extension of the original SDSS consisting of three subprojects: The Legacy Survey, SEGUE and a Supernova survey. Read more ...

  • An overview reference for SEGUE. Click here.

  • Colors of Quasars Reveal a Dusty Universe: The vast expanses of intergalactic space appear to be filled with a haze of tiny, smoke-like "dust" particles that dim the light from distant objects and subtly change their colors, according to a team of astronomers from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-II).

    The population of supernovae - exploding stars in distant galaxies -- has exploded here on Earth with an unprecedented number of new discoveries logged in just 90 days by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-II). Details ...

  • The extension of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-II) announced in an International Astronomical Union Circular the discovery of five supernovae on September 19. This is the start of a multi-year program that will discover several hundred supernovae and use them to estimate properties of dark matter and dark energy. The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) based at the University of Notre Dame is partner in the SDSS-II effort. Read more ...
