Post-starburst galaxies have stopped forming new stars, but astronomers are still trying to figure out why. Today’s paper looks at an unusual galaxy to see what might be quenching its star formation.
It seems like we hear people denying scientific findings around every corner. The goal of this Beyond Astrobite is to examine why people don’t trust science and what we can do about it.
Protostars aren’t quite stars yet, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important in stellar evolution. Today’s paper looks at the magnetic field across the different regions in a protostar.
We sit down with Dr. Lisa Kaltenegger, the 236th AAS Meeting’s Fred Kavli Plenary Lecturer to discuss her quest to find life on other planets using the information we know about our own.
This hot and massive star is blowing a bubble of ionized Hydrogen, which forms spider web-like filaments of material that may be the catalyst for forming other massive stars.
