Long-term space missions have left us with a wealth of stellar data. Come to Dr. Jennifer van Saders’s talk at #AAS235 to learn more about how these data, along with stellar models, can reveal a star’s evolutionary past and future.
All stars rotate, and stellar rotation can impact a star’s evolution greatly. However stellar rotation remains poorly understood. Can studying stellar pulsations shed light on this topic?
Low-mass stars exhibit a wide range of flare events. But it takes a coordinated effort to measure them all.
We all know planets form around stars, can planet formation occur around something much more exotic?
The fastest Main Sequence star yet probably came from the Galactic Center.
A study of star clusters in the Milky Way has uncovered a peculiar trend in the way they are arranged.
