Today’s ‘beyond’ bite takes you back to 2000, when a new telescope meant to survey the night sky takes the astrophysics community by storm.
Throw a bunch of different planetary systems into your supercomputer and let them simmer for a hundred million years. Eventually, they’ll all be more alike than they started.
A classic paper on dark matter is brought to ‘light’ in this bite, discussing a discovery that provides one of the best evidences we have for non-baryonic matter in the universe.
A look at a classic paper exploring a novel technique to select distant galaxies by waiting for them to drop out of the spectra…
Since gravitational waves are now on the tip of every astronomer’s tongue, today’s post looks back at a classic paper’s key result that is quintessential in the search for gravitational waves using pulsar timing arrays.
Through tangled magnetic fields, super massive black holes and at least one otter, we explore how the phenomenal jets launched from the centre of galaxies are created.
