Today’s authors discovered a very long, very odd galactic tail, and discuss what that means for its origin and for the history of the galax(ies) involved!
The first directly imaged hierarchical quadruple system: two stars, each with a substellar companion!
Will Betelgeuse go supernova in the next few decades? This paper suggests so…
In this post, we explore the use of modern telescopes to identify and study Young Stellar Objects in the Chamaeleon Cloud Complex – a star-forming region in the Chamaeleon constellation. YSOs exhibit an infrared excess due to the presence of cooler circumstellar matter. By analyzing their Spectral Energy Distribution, we can gain insights into the rate at which stars form and the factors that govern this process. Using GAIA parameters, such as parallax and proper motion, we can refine the list of known young stars and identify new ones. Our results demonstrate the power of modern telescopes in unlocking the mysteries of star formation.
In today’s paper, the authors describe and attempt a method to trace the evolution of our galaxy by comparing the ratio of oxygen isotopes in different regions of the Milky Way!
In today’s paper, astronomers have accurately determined the properties of a nearby, giant star-forming region in the galaxy NGC 2366.
