We report on Day 3 of the summer AAS meeting in Denver, CO. Highlights include a look at the triumphs of helioseismology, discussions on merging galaxies, and a new way to weigh the Milky Way.
Dwarf galaxies: small blobs of dark matter (and stars and gas), or time traveling machines for studying chemical evolution? Professor Evan Kirby’s upcoming #AAS232 talk will tell you more.
We report on Day 2 of the summer AAS meeting in Denver, CO. Highlights include recent studies of interstellar molecules, updates on Boyajian’s Star, recent developments in Astrobites’ education projects, precision astrophysics for exoplanets, stars and the Milky Way!
Some galaxies live peaceful lives, calmly making stars at a sedate pace, with supermassive black holes that don’t vomit jets of material. Other galaxies… not so much. Come to Professor Julie Comerford’s upcoming #AAS232 talk to learn more about the weird and wonderful world of active galactic nuclei!
Hear about the work of Dr. Sarbani Basu in astroseismology and what to expect from her talk this Wednesday at AAS.
Astronomy and exoplanet science are entering into an era of unprecedented precision. Check out Dr. Keivan Stassun’s plenary talk at #AAS232 to learn more!
