Today’s paper discusses a recent, unusual supernova, which may be the first strong evidence for a long-predicted phenomenon: an exploding white dwarf triggered by an initial explosion in its atmosphere.
Two attempts to measure the masses of retired A-type stars give two different results.
The discovery of a bright, dusty galaxy at high redshift and what it might tell us about similar galaxies at that distance.
An instrument designed to look for exoplanets around the brightest stars in the sky; what have they found so far?
The discovery of carbon-rich Mira variables in the Galactic centre could imply the existence of a number of young stars among the otherwise old Galactic bulge population.
