The spectroscopists don’t want you to know that exoplanet atmospheres are actually three-dimensional! Today’s authors use computational climate models to study how we might be able to directly observe different planetary heating processes.
The Rainbow Village at AAS provided a gathering place for people of color in astronomy at the recent AAS meeting in New Orleans. Today’s post looks back at how things went, and where the concept will go in the future!
Do magnetars have flux ropes that look like giant muscular arms? No, but they have some magnetic arches with the muscle to rip light apart!
Do galaxies turn into raisins when they sit in the bath too long? Today’s authors investigate what their bath is like!
What happens when a black hole merger stalls at the final parsec? Nothing, unless another black hole can shake things up a bit!
The dynamical universe sends out ripples creating a massive symphony of gravitational waves. Learn how we can tune into all these melodies with new detectors in today’s post!
Astronomy beyond the research
Today we interview cosmologist Prof. Jamie Bock from Caltech/JPL for his Plenary Lecture at #AAS243!
We interviewed Prof. Renee Ludlam of Wayne State University to learn all about neutron stars ahead of her plenary talk at #AAS243!
We interviewed Prof. Marta Bryan from the University of Toronto to learn all about exoplanets ahead of her plenary talk at #AAS243!
