Blazar OJ 287 is our best known candidate to be an AGN with a binary black hole as a central engine. Pretty groovy, if you ask me. Plus, we might even be able to take a picture of it! Read on to learn more.
The Milky Way’s disc is made up of two components — but where did they come from?
The first ever image of a black hole just got even more detailed
New simulations show that a chain of orbital resonances can reproduce the Galilean system
When the rotation of a star is misaligned from the orbits of its planets, astronomers often attribute the misalignment to planetary dynamics. In the case of K2-290 A, today’s authors instead attribute its misalignment to its stellar companion.
With a new generation of space and ground based telescopes on the horizon, we will soon have the tools to efficiently begin looking for life’s signatures in exoplanet atmospheres. Where should we look first to maximize our chances?
