Mr. Maytag Says, (continued from page IA) especially to research on quasars. quasars--star-like powerhouses--are about the size of our solar system, yet they emit energy comparable to a thousand galaxies. Among the most distant objects in the universe that have been studied to date, quasars have puzzled astronomers since their .discovery in the early 19608. In March 1979, astronomers Ray Weymann, Dennis Walsh and Robert Carswell working at the nearby Kitt Peak National Observatory 84-inch telescope discovered what appeared to be a pair of quasars. Not only were these "twins" extraordinarily close together, but spectra (analyses of the components of the light) showed the pair to be almost identical. Some scientists proposed that the twins might be a single quasar whose image had been split by the gravity of an object of enormous mass. Albert Einstein had predicted this effect, but he believed that there would be "no great chance of observing the phenomenon." Astronomers around the world turned their attention and their telescopes to the "twins" to solve this puzzle. In April 1979, one month before the MMT was officially dedicated, the discoverers of the twin quasar joined forces with Nathaniel P. Carleton, Frederic H. Chaffee and Marc Davis of the Smithsonian "multiple quasar"--this one a triplet--in 1980. As a joint research facility, University of Arizona astronomers also use the MMT, and early, in 1980 the instrument enabled Arizona astronomers to discover a new type of star. This exceedingly hot, pulsating star, designated PG 1159-035, is burning its hydrogen fuel at an ex- traordinary rate. Because of this, the star is "aging" rapidly and observers hope to see physical changes within a few years rather than the more typical astronomical time-scales of millions of years. These changes can be detected by the star's varying pulsation period; for the first time, perhaps, an astronomer may see changes in a star during his or her lifetime. "It is the massive light- gathering power of the MMT and its electronic detectors that allow us to define this two • percent variation of a very fiant star," John McGraw, an astronomer at the University of Arizona, says. The MMT and other large instruments look at stars, galaxies and quasars which are so distant or so faint that smaller telescopes simply cannot collect enough of their light for scientific research. Scientists have enhanced the light-gathering power .of the MMT further by replacing the traditional and slow-working photographic plates with highly sensitive electronic BITS and PIECES There exist limitless op- portunities in every industry.
