In today’s paper, astronomers look for meandering modern-day analogues of the ancient building blocks of supermassive black holes.
Just how rare is this hyperluminous heavily obscured active galactic nucleus in a dusty starburst in the early Universe?
If aliens are trying to get our attention, how should we look for their smoke signals? Today’s paper describes a search for broadband radio waves coming from our closest stellar neighbors!
The presence of dark matter particles in barred spiral galaxies should slow down their galactic bars. However, this is not what we observe. Are galactic bars telling us to reconsider the foundations of the standard model?
Stars like hiding their ages! In today’s paper, the authors inferred velocities of thousands of stars, which will help to determine their ages!
Stellar streams are beautiful structures that trace the dark matter distribution of a galaxy. Today’s paper looks beyond our Milky Way for streams in external galaxies.
