In today’s undergraduate research post, we see that massive stars are often found in the centers of stellar clusters. Are they born there or do they move there at a later stage?
In today’s undergraduate research post, the unusual brightness changes of the famous ‘Winking Star’ binary system is used to constrain properties of the disk that surrounds this intriguing system.
Today’s undergraduate research post features a student who uses computer simulations to simulate black holes and how they evolve over billions of years.
EBL is capable of producing gratings with high enough resolutions to be used in next-generation X-ray observatories.
Using new observations from the UVCANDELS survey, a possible link between recent star formation, merger frequency, and the size-mass evolution of massive, quiescent galaxies is investigated.
UR #28: Photometry and Analysis of a Sample of Quasars on Archival Yerkes Observatory Photographic Plates
Today’s guest post looks at the work of undergraduate physics student Buduka Ogonor on using astronomical photographic plates to study quasars.
