Helioseismology is a powerful tool for understanding the interior of our closest star. Can it also be used to observe the solar surface?
Long-term space missions have left us with a wealth of stellar data. Come to Dr. Jennifer van Saders’s talk at #AAS235 to learn more about how these data, along with stellar models, can reveal a star’s evolutionary past and future.
All stars rotate, and stellar rotation can impact a star’s evolution greatly. However stellar rotation remains poorly understood. Can studying stellar pulsations shed light on this topic?
We all know planets form around stars, can planet formation occur around something much more exotic?
Recent events surrounding the Thirty Meter Telescope have brought this ongoing controversy to the forefront of conversation once again. Building upon a previous Astrobite, today’s post reviews how western astronomy has historically interacted with the Indigenous Hawaiian community.
