Today’s Bite focuses on formally tying together children’s pastimes, their interest levels in Astronomy and what we can do to inspire others.
A dwarf irregular galaxy in the Lynx-Cancer void is cannibalizing its neighbors.
Giant galaxies are built out of a patchwork of many smaller galaxies, drawn together by gravity. But the stars in these precursor galaxies are disimilar. How does this process of galactic assembly affect what we can infer about star formation?
By the time a star becomes a white dwarf, much of its mass will have been lost. When does this mass loss occur and what drives it? Read today’s astrobite to find out.
A gravitational tug-of-war between three stars has this planet living on the edge.
Magnificent though they are, galaxies are in constant risk of death from their own members and the environment. Today, we look at a murder act staged by black holes and mergers.
