If you didn’t know already, asteroseismology is awesome. Read on to hear why…
How can the colors of objects tell you how far away they are? The subject of this month’s undergrad research post tells us about his work determining the colors of quasars.
Obtaining high-resolution spectra of asteroids is challenging. Measuring asteroid albedos in broad photometric wavebands is relatively easy, and potentially provides useful information about surface composition.
Witzel et. al examine the statistical properties of the photometric variability of our Galaxy’s central black hole.
