If we know a star’s rotation we can calculate its age. But what happens if this rotation is affected by a nearby massive planet? And how much will this change our age estimate?
The discovery of PSR J0250+5854, the slowest radio pulsar, has everyone wondering – how slow does a pulsar need to spin before its radio beam turns off?
New observations of pulsing variable stars weigh in on the Hubble tension. Find out how in this Astrobite!
A mysterious type of matter, quark-gluon plasma, may lie at the heart of neutron stars.
PSR J0337+1715, a millisecond pulsar in a hierarchical stellar triple system with two white dwarfs, provides a stringent test of gravity via Einstein’s strong equivalence principle!
Multiple models have been proposed to explain the intriguing properties of FRBs, but this new model provides one of the most detailed scenarios yet, consistent with properties of current observed FRBs.
