On a daily basis, astronomers deal with analyzing data. That’s the way we verify our models and increase our comprehension of the universe. In order to do that, we commonly rely on general software such as Astropy. Who’s behind such powerful tool? Is our community giving these people the proper recognition?
There are some papers that present relations that are important enough to get their own names. This astrobite presents three relations that have a remarkable similar shape, namely the Faber-Jackson, Tully-Fisher and M-sigma relations.
Do predictions from classical disk theory work with state-of-the-art measurements?
New supernovae measurements and precise distance calculations lead to an interesting conflict in cosmological parameters in the universe, depending on whether a tool is used to probe the local or the distant universe. Read on to find out how!
How do we model stellar activity to disentangle planet signals from stellar activity using only RVs?
Crowdsourcing provides a cheap and efficient way for astronomers to analyze features on the lunar surface.
