Your backyard-style black hole is easily made from a fairly massive star. But how do you get a really massive black hole, maybe even a supermassive one?
Ever wondered how worsening climate change will affect your work? Some astronomers asked themselves the same question!
If the light from supernovae travels at, unsurprisingly, the speed of light (which really is the upper limit here), how can we predict them? Time travel, is that you? Spoiler alert: it isn’t. It’s neutrinos.
Just before going supernova, some stars tend to have some gas problems, so why not simulate how?
Astronomy has not been the most environmentally friendly science out there, but have there also been some good things astronomy brought to aid in the climate crisis?
