We report on Day 4 of the winter AAS meeting in Seattle, WA. Highlights include an exploding space cow, a discussion of data in astronomy, the latest look at the possibility of life beyond earth, and an exploration of climate impact much closer to home.
What’s next in the future of dark matter direct detection experiments? Find out in Dr. Elena Aprile’s plenary talk at #AAS233!
Two (stars) aren’t always better than one, especially when you’re trying to track down dark matter in tiny galaxies.
The unique nature of the newly discovered dwarf galaxy Ant 2 may have exciting implications for our understanding of dark matter and galaxy formation.
How can the orbits of satellite galaxies be used to pin down the mass of the Milky Way?
Stellar streams are an excellent tool for probing the nature of Dark Matter. Today’s paper tests whether Fuzzy Dark Matter is a viable theory by evaluating the thinness of streams in the Milky Way.
