In this Astrobite, we see if gravitational waves can help us find theoretical horizonless compact objects, exotic objects predicted by modern alternatives to General Relativity!
In this Astrobite, the authors search for primordial black holes, a dark matter candidate, by calculating the effect their gravity would have on objects in our Solar System!
In this Astrobite, we look at black hole mergers in the accretion disks around supermassive black holes, because you can simply never have too many black holes!
In this Astrobite, we look at some of the potential sources of the newly discovered gravitational wave background. Supermassive Black Hole Binary mergers are believed to be the primary culprit, but several other fascinating phenomena could also be contributing.
Neutron stars likely contain a quark soup center, and the authors of today’s paper seek to see if the process of neutrons being crushed into this quark soup could explain the unexplained fast radio burst phenomenon.
