Neutron star mergers are incredible events! Come hear Professor Daniel Kasen talk all about them on Monday, January 6th at 4:40 PM at #AAS235!
We’ve seen supernovae, but what’s a kilonova? Professor Brian Metzger will tell us all about these high energy events in his talk at #AAS235.
Recent X-ray observations of a pulsar reveal a stranger configuration of “hot spots” than previously thought.
The ‘mass gap’ is a mass range bereft of any observed neutron stars or black holes. What can gravitational waves tell us about possible inhabitants of this terra incognita?
Pulsars emit radio radiation, but sometimes they just randomly switch off. Why is that?
What does the merger of a neutron star with a black hole look like? Here’s a systematic study of how neutron star properties affect the electromagnetic emission from the merger.
