Elements heavier than iron are forged by neutron-capture processes. How are they distributed in the Galaxy?
A variety of mechanisms cause stars to experience spin evolution. Can we learn about planet formation by pushing spin measurements down to substellar masses?
Observations of potential biosignatures on other worlds are slowly getting within reach. What kind of signal might be among the lowest-hanging fruit?
The study of exoplanet atmospheres is still a very new field that requires detection of tiny signals. Today’s bite is about a review article that looks back at occasionally illusory results and towards the future.
The Milky Way is known to host a supermassive black hole and dozens of featherweight ones. This paper describes the discovery of the second-most-massive known black hole in the galaxy.
