Some stars go so fast, they can escape the Milky Way. Today’s article takes a closer look at one of these stars found by Gaia, but is everything as it seems?
Moons of exoplanets have not yet been conclusively. Today’s authors carefully re-evaluate some of the evidence for their own candidate detection of the first known exomoon.
Are sunspots the key to answering the decades-old solar coronal heating problem? The authors of today’s paper observe a few sunspot groups to find out.
The sites of planet formation seem to be anything but orderly and a recent discovery may help explain the observed wide variety of exoplanet configurations.
The Sun is known to rotate differentially, which plays a large part in our understanding of solar physics. Do we see the same differential rotation in Solar analogues, 16 Cyg A & B?
A new survey of complex nitrogen-bearing molecules in nearby protoplanetary disks reveals a surprisingly robust chemistry.
