Mysterious, brief bursts of radio have been detected many times from what looks to be the same source for the first time.
Since discovered last year, the origin of a disproportionate amount of extreme heavy elements in a dwarf galaxy has been a mystery. Could it be the work of an invisible hand?
In today’s paper, Rezzolla and Kumar present a solution to the x-ray afterglow problem for the short gamma ray burst model. They show that x-rays can glow steadily for hours after the initial gamma ray emission due to the interactions of a slow and a fast wind.
Dark matter, neutron stars, black holes, and an extremely exotic explanation for Fast Radio Bursts.
For the first time, astronomers have announced a Thorne–Żytkow Object candidate- a bizarre system in which a neutron star is surrounded by an envelope of stellar material.
Neutron stars can provide insights into extreme and exotic states of matter.
