Today’s paper presents an intermediate mass black hole (IMBH) hiding within a dense star cluster. X-ray and optical observations over 15 years allow the authors to explore the different stages of this IMBH feasting on an unlucky star.
Today’s paper looks at observations of 19 low mass galaxies which appear to contain no dark matter, potentially challenging our overall understanding of galaxy formation.
Today’s authors take a multi-faceted approach to characterising a benchmark subgiant star using asteroseismology, interferometry, and spectroscopy.
An explosive stellar merger reveals the first radioactive molecule discovered in space.
The absence of dusty circumplanetary disks around young giant planets suggests moonetesimals grow relatively quickly.
Is the evolution of galaxies and their AGN driven by past mergers?
