Pulsars emit radio radiation, but sometimes they just randomly switch off. Why is that?
Why is one magnetar giving off bursts of energetic radio waves? Is it related to giant pulses? FRBs? Both?
The absence of dusty circumplanetary disks around young giant planets suggests moonetesimals grow relatively quickly.
The discovery of the slowest rotating radio pulsar, PSR J0250+5854, has scientists wondering – how slow do radio pulsars spin?
Recently, the world saw the first-ever images of a black hole’s shadow. Future images could be sharper with space-based telescopes!
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!
