Using 14 years of high resolution near-infrared imaging, radio observations of molecular gas, and a hydrodynamic simulation the authors show that spiral arms seen in the protoplanetary disk around HD 100453 A are caused by its M-dwarf companion.
A ghostly plasma lens occulting QSR J1819+3845 has been imaged directly at radio wavelengths. What can we learn about this strange interloper? (Image: unrelated observation of solar activity resembling a jack-o’-lantern, courtesy NASA/GSFC/SDO)
Radio Astronomers detect the first FRBs in an interferometer!
Instead of sitting around and twiddling its thumbs when unused, your computer could be contributing to science! Today’s astrobite highlights the discovery of a rare system that was uncovered through the Einstein@Home project.
Can the next generation of radio telescopes measure the cosmic sound from the early universe? Radio astronomers use simulations to find out.
Powerful auroras have been detected at a nearby brown dwarf. Today we’ll be discussing this discovery, which is the first instance of auroras found outside of the solar system.
