Interplanetary collisions can explain a number of phenomena in our own solar system — here’s evidence of such a crash shaping the formation of two distant planets. Translate from an Astrobitos bite by Elena Gonzales Egea.
Today’s authors carefully check their evidence for the first potential exomoon detection.
Today’s authors use asteroseismology to determine differential rotation in two sun-like stars.
Can exoplanetary systems remain intact in dense stellar environments, or are their exoplanets destined to be flung into the far reaches of space? N-body simulations hint at characteristics that lead to a higher likelihood of survival.
Today’s authors use a new technique to make new discoveries about the Seven Sisters.
Could exocomets be causing these strange shaped lightcurves?
