Accretion in Young Stars

What might be causing the accretion rates in newly formed stars to remain so high?

Astrophysical Classics: Cosmochronology with White Dwarfs

In today’s Astrophysical Classic, we hark back to 1987 and the introduction of a new method determining the age of the universe through the use of white dwarf stars.

A Faint Black Hole?

The authors report the discovery of perhaps the faintest black hole x-ray binary. But this conclusion is limited by the uncertainty in the distance to the object.

Blank Sky But Not Blank Information

Archival data are able to place constraints on the origin of supernova 2011fe.

Engineering at the SOAR Telescope in Chile

I recently participated in an engineering trip to the SOAR Telescope in Chile, where I helped with numerous maintenance and upgrades for the Goodman Spectrograph.

Pulsations and Evolution

Kepler finds a new binary system with a Delta Scuti pulsator.

Orbital Decay of X-ray Binaries

In today’s paper, the authors study how the periods of two black hole x-ray binaries are changing. They find that the periods are decaying faster than expected based on standard theoretical arguments.

Progenitors of AM CVn systems

The progenitors of a special type of cataclysmic variable, AM CVn, and possibly supernovae have been found.

When Galaxies Interact

The authors seek to understand how two galaxies are interacting with each other.

Jets in a post-AGB envelope

The authors present the first direct evidence of a jet shaping the circumstellar envelope of a post-AGB star.
