The discovery of PSR J0250+5854, the slowest radio pulsar, has everyone wondering – how slow does a pulsar need to spin before its radio beam turns off?
The first ever shadow of a black hole has been imaged using a global network of ground-based telescopes. A concept study of a space-based interferometric experiment shows that in the future, black holes could be imaged with even more precision.
A team at West Virginia University has developed a technique using neural networks and machine learning to track down FRBs within data sets!
PSR J0337+1715, a millisecond pulsar in a hierarchical stellar triple system with two white dwarfs, provides a stringent test of gravity via Einstein’s strong equivalence principle!
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.
Some galaxies are easy to find—others, like dusty galaxies with extreme star formation, are a bit harder to track down. Come to Professor Caitlin Casey’s #AAS233 talk to learn how we can find these galaxies in the “obscured early universe”!
