Ever wanted to take a peak into a Galactic archaeologist’s toolbox? Today’s authors take us on a great tour of theirs as they investigate several moving groups discovered pre-Gaia that may be part of the Milky Way halo!
Stellar ages are notoriously difficult to determine. However, today’s authors investigate a promising new method of estimating stellar age with “chemical clocks!”
Disentangling Milky Way Evolution with Disentangled Representation Learning, a New Tool for Chemical Tagging
Chemical tagging without chemical abundances? Today’s authors devise a neural network that ‘disentangles’ chemical abundances from stellar spectra to avoid the uncertainties that often beset chemical taggers.
The search for the elusive intermediate-mass black hole continues. Today’s authors present a novel method to search for Milky Way intermediate-mass black holes with the hyper-velocity stars they eject!
