Yang et al. use climate models to investigate whether rocky exoplanets around M-stars can retain their oceans in the face of tidal locking.
Y dwarfs are the coolest end of the stellar classification scheme, and studying these often cloudy objects comes with plenty of challenges.
KIC 2856960 appeared to be an interesting but straightforward triple star system in the Kepler catalog. But attempts to model this system prove that appearances can be deceiving.
This white dwarf is surrounded by a debris disk. What formed the disk, and what’s destroying it now?
What’s causing the “beads on a string” pattern of star formation around this interacting galaxy pair?
