Multiple models have been proposed to explain the intriguing properties of FRBs, but this new model provides one of the most detailed scenarios yet, consistent with properties of current observed FRBs.
Radio observations of a nearby protoplanetary disk have revealed the discovery of a new molecule, formic acid, which is the first organic acid to be found in a planet-forming disk. The discovery of such biologically-relevant molecules can tell us something about questions related to the origins of life in other nascent planetary systems.
A new technique allows for precise measurements of the brightest stars observed by the Kepler and K2 missions. For its debut, the authors looked at the Pleiades Cluster.
Can an unexplained signal found inside multiple galaxy clusters tell us something about dark matter? Find out about a tantalising indirect detection by X-ray astronomers.
Observations of dim galaxies lensed by foreground clusters provides a way of measuring the progression of reionization.
Massive astronomy surveys reveal previously undiscovered structures. What can three new globular clusters tell us about the ancient Universe?
