In our latest #UndergradResearch post, check out Ava Stockman’s research on sorting out signals from noise in the LISA data challenge!
In our latest #UndergradResearch post, Jessica Anderson investigates how thin disks can be stable in low-mass X-ray binary systems.
We report on Day 1 of the virtual summer AAS meeting.
Blazar OJ 287 is our best known candidate to be an AGN with a binary black hole as a central engine. Pretty groovy, if you ask me. Plus, we might even be able to take a picture of it! Read on to learn more.
