I attempt to summarize what some astronomers have called “undoubtedly the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Today’s undergraduate research post features a student who analyzed the motion of tornadoes on the Sun’s surface using spectroscopy. Read on to find out more!
Measuring a white dwarf’s gravitational redshift can help us figure out its mass, but for one of the closest stars to us (Sirius B) the numbers didn’t match with other methods. Today’s paper investigates the discrepancy.
Based on colour alone, can we distinguish between a rocky, icy and gaseous planet?
Today’s paper explores different possibilities causing the brown dwarf CWW 89Ab to be overly bright.
Could Gaia’s immense catalog of stellar positions help us find extraterrestrial intelligence?
