Today’s undergraduate research post is seeking to automatically identify variable stars in the upcoming all sky survey, LSST. Read on to find out more!
A few years ago, an asteroid visited our solar system…now, a comet from a different star is here!
*just to be clear, the aliens I am talking about are rocks and not alive nor intelligent. But there may be many of them!
Continuing our series on the historical interaction between Western astronomy and Indigenous communities, this post discusses ALMA and other observatories in Chile.
A neural network enables transient classification with ongoing observations, potentially providing astronomers with more time to study the transient while it is still occurring.
How would the LSST have to survey the sky in order to study dark energy?
