Are planets just as likely to form around binary stars as they are around single stars? Today’s authors are asking this very question.
A mysterious pair of stars speeding through the outskirts of our galaxy together puzzles astronomers
We still lack a good understanding of the source of ionizing photons in the early Universe. Can envelope-stripping from a binary companion help stars to re-ionize the early universe?
The circumprimary planet HD 59686 raises many questions about formation and stability in binary systems.
Astronomers study a gravitationally lensed emission line galaxy, with implications for the characteristics of early galaxy populations.
Using 14 years of high resolution near-infrared imaging, radio observations of molecular gas, and a hydrodynamic simulation the authors show that spiral arms seen in the protoplanetary disk around HD 100453 A are caused by its M-dwarf companion.
