Traces of planets devoured by their host stars can possibly be found within the external layers of the stellar surface. These remains tell a story of the evolution and architecture of different planetary systems and grant new appreciation for our relatively calm environment.
You may have heard of the Fermi Paradox, but have you heard of the Red Sky Paradox? Statistics argue that unless common red dwarf star systems are less habitable, it’s pretty unusual that we orbit a sun-like star.
The startender asks, “How are the three of you working together?!”
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, Stan DeLaurentiis asks how reliable our Hα measurements of low-mass stars really are? And are they really solely influenced by a star’s magnetic activity?
CU Virginis emits beams of radio waves like a pulsar. What’s going on in its magnetosphere?
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Anna Estes used ALMA to characterize Proxima Centauri’s flaring emissions at millimeter wavelengths!
