Today’s post by guest author Riley Owens discusses JWST observations of the star Earendel and whether it’s actually part of a binary system.
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Saurav Ruparelia studied stellar light curves to find extremely low-mass stellar remnants.
Free-floating planets are hard to explain. Can the messy evolution of tilted planetary systems around binary stars help?
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.
