The first stars may have formed in clusters, rather than in isolation as previously thought. What would these clusters look like?
New 3D simulations that capture the last minutes of a massive star’s life reveal that its violently turbulent interior can affect how it dies.
Earth’s oceans may have originated mainly from accreted impactors. But do planets in other systems experience the same water delivery mechanism? Or do they even get more water than our world? Find out why you would want to think about this and what the consequences might be.
The rare (un)lucky star dies by means of black hole, which shreds the star to bits before swallowing it. It’s a spectacular death to observe, but one which is less bright and hot than we thought they would be…
Why do planetary disks fade away so fast? A leading candidate as villain in this story is turbulence. Using the combined strengths of sophisticated theoretical models and observations, we might be able to find out if this is true!
Magnetic fields are a crucial part of star formation. Read on whether and how the magnetic field strength dissipates during the early collapsing phase.
