Low-mass stars exhibit a wide range of flare events. But it takes a coordinated effort to measure them all.
Where a galaxy lies on the cosmic web can play a part in determining it’s mass and star formation rate.
An Astro2020 white paper presents evidence that GRE is biased and a poor predictor of PhD success, and offers guidelines for eliminating the requirement from graduate school admissions.
TAs are important in student learning, so how can we better prepare TAs to teach? This is the first post in a collaboration between PERbites and Astrobites on science education.
Pulsars emit radio radiation, but sometimes they just randomly switch off. Why is that?
Stellar feedback can drive a galactic fountain by pushing out gas that later falls back in.
Astronomy beyond the research
There is one week left to apply to write for Astrobites. Come join the Astrobites team! Applications due Nov. 15.
Many studies have been done within astronomy to investigate gender inequality between men and women. But, what can we do to better support the members of our community who don’t identify as part of the gender binary?
Read about how the Harvard Computers shaped stellar astronomy and more in today’s guest post by Jillian Hyland.
Navigating careers in astronomy
Professor Xander Tielens, a chemical physicist and self-described moon child, studies molecules in the interstellar medium as a tool for understanding everything from galaxy evolution to the origin of life. Learn more at his plenary talk at #AAS234.
Professor Elisabeth Mills studies one of the most mysterious regions of the Milky Way: the galactic center. Learn about the stars, gas, and a black hole that make this such an exciting area of research ahead of her talk at #AAS234.
Professor Yacine Ali-Haïmoud studies the theory behind our astrophysical observations, from primordial black holes to organic compounds in the interstellar medium. Learn more at his keynote at #AAS234.
