Another interview for #BlackInAstroWeek! We interview Dr. Carl E. Fields, a rising star studying core-collapse supernovae using computer simulations and one of the #BlackInAstro co-organizers!
Did ‘Oumuamua originate in a nearby Giant Molecular Cloud? Today’s authors continue the debate surrounding the mysterious origins of our first interstellar visitor!
Ever wondered what role turbulence and other aspects of fluid dynamics play in the formation of stars in galaxies? Find out at Dr. Burkhart’s #AAS238 Annie Jump Cannon Prize lecture on Tuesday, 8th June!
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover Tommy Wen Chin’s research investigating the size of the neutral regions during the epoch of reionization.
With a new generation of space and ground based telescopes on the horizon, we will soon have the tools to efficiently begin looking for life’s signatures in exoplanet atmospheres. Where should we look first to maximize our chances?
We know that a cluster can be a dangerous place for a young star trying to form some new planets. Radiation and winds from massive stars can evaporate the planetary disc, and the gravitational pull from fly-bys of other stars can disrupt the disc and drag the planet-forming material away.
