The most distant quasar yet discovered illuminates the early universe…
Hints of a theory beyond General Relativity could lie in the shape of a black hole’s shadow. An Earth-sized telescope will allow us to resolve these shadows for the first time.
Supernova remnant magnetic fields may play a key role in accelerating electrons to relativistic velocities. West et al. investigate the magnetic field conditions inside young supernova remnants and discover that they may not be as well-behaved as they appear.
In a strange, half-lost, piece of work Roger Penrose draws four figures dropping their lines into the depths of a black hole, and in doing so finds a new and hugely influential way to steal energy away from the heart of a spinning singularity.
Today’s paper takes you back to the time when anisotropies in the Cosmic Microwave Background first shaped Observational Cosmology into the field it is today.
Folmahaut’s debris disk has been observed to have an unusual brightening in millimeter wavelengths.
