We dive back into one of the earliest studies of the outer solar system that helped us understand how four gas giants playing a chaotic game of catch could have knocked Pluto into its topsy-turvy orbit.
We revisit the discovery of the binary pulsar and it’s important impact on modern astronomy and astrophysics.
The year is 1978. Some people are wondering how star formation works in weird-looking galaxies.
Trying to find the most massive galaxy cluster in the night sky can be hard. Comparing predictions of these masses to observed clusters? Even harder. An insight into the world of Halo Mass Functions and their tail-ends.
In a strange, half-lost, piece of work Roger Penrose draws four figures dropping their lines into the depths of a black hole, and in doing so finds a new and hugely influential way to steal energy away from the heart of a spinning singularity.
The first detection of a pulsar and the first Nobel Prize in Physics for an astronomical detection.
