The most recent gravitational wave merger detected by LIGO/VIRGO consists of two objects with very unequal masses. But just what is the smaller object?
We can learn a lot about colliding neutron stars from their gravitational waves, but can we also find out how circular their orbits were before they collided? Find the answer, and what it means for future binary neutron star merger detections with today’s paper.
Two collaborations, one bright, millisecond duration Galactic radio burst. Has the mystery of the source of fast radio bursts been solved?
Fast radio bursts are one of the most interesting phenomena in the universe, but we still don’t know what causes them. Does FRB 181112 hold the key?
What’s the best way to look for intermediate mass black holes? The authors of this paper think it’s to measure the change in the accelerations of pulsars in the center of globular clusters.
