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.
Today’s paper tests five different models of star cluster formation to find out how gravitationally-bound star clusters form in our Universe.
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.
