A newly discovered Globular Cluster is one of the most massive and metal-poor in the Galaxy. In today’s paper, we examine the stars inside the cluster to see where it stands on the metal-poor podium.
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Alexandra Kwon modeled the evolution of chemical abundance in dwarf galaxies.
Heavy elements require extreme conditions to be produced. Today’s bite explores three unique stars that may give us additional clues on how that happens.
Massive stars live fast and die young, making metals along the way.
Meet Leo I, one of the dwarf galaxies that may help us understand the earliest galaxies to form.
Violent collisions give rise to some of the densest, most massive planets in our galaxy.
