How do neutron stars acquire such strong magnetic fields? Why do these fields differ between pulsars and magnetars? Today’s paper suggests that *convective dynamos* may be at play.
Cosmic magnetic fields are everywhere, but we don’t know where they came from. Today’s paper looks at simulations of the earliest fields in the Universe to try to solve this magnetic mystery.
Why is the Universe’s expansion accelerating? We have no idea! But, maybe fast radio bursts can provide some clues.
Move over, dinosaurs — the search for fossilized dark matter is the new trend in (galactic) geology.
When studying the Universe becomes too complicated for human brains, we turn to artificial intelligence! Check out how today’s authors used a neural network to predict motions on the Universe’s largest scales
