Massive blue galaxies in the early universe present a dusty puzzle. Is the dust in these galaxies being ejected, or is it squirreled away in giant molecular clouds?
Today’s authors propose a theory to explain at least some fast radio bursts. And the data looks pretty convincing! Read on to hear exactly what it entails.
A dormant stellar mass black hole has been found, practically in our own backyard!
Initial results from Hayabusa 2’s trip to the asteroid Ryugu!
Today’s paper uses simulations to understand how the Milky Way’s stellar halo formed, and also asks: what determines the evolutionary pathway taken by a galaxy over cosmic time?
Water vapor detection of exoplanet atmospheres has been a hot topic. This scientific question is included in the first set of results published by JWST. But it’s even more difficult to detect the presence of water vapor on exoplanets in the Neptune desert. This year, researchers detected water vapor on TOI-674 b for the first time by analyzing atmospheric transmission spectrum. It’s very exciting. This discovery provides an important target for subsequent detection with higher precision by JWST.
