In today’s paper, learn about the strange behavior of a variable star, and a possible explanation for its strange behavior: an invisible dancing partner!
Can binary stars have circumbinary disks that orbits them in a perpendicular plane? Today’s authors took a closer look at this setup and the complex exchange of material between stars and circumbinary disk.
Astronomers study the orbits of a sextuplet system, an absurdly complex arrangement of six stars in orbit around one another, in order to measure their masses once and for all.
The authors of today’s article argue that stripped B-type stars could be a source of false positives in the search for quiet, stellar-mass black holes in the Milky Way
Today’s paper posits that precise observations of wide binaries can be used, in conjunction with simulations, to test the validity of modified gravity theories!
How do you make a supernova without hydrogen and helium lines? The answer may surprise you! (It’s probably binary stars)
