Molecules in Space
A 10.4 m radio telescope is located in the RRI campus – it is being readied for a survey of spectral line emission from silicon monoxide molecules in stellar envelopes in the central parts of our Milky Way Galaxy – to study the dynamics of the spheroidal bulge component of our Galaxy.

Polarized X-rays from space
RRI astronomers are developing methods of detecting polarized X-rays from celestial bodies – to build X-ray instruments that can detect polarized X-rays, which will be launched into space, and open new eyes to celestial phenomena.
