PSR J0337+1715, a millisecond pulsar in a hierarchical stellar triple system with two white dwarfs, provides a stringent test of gravity via Einstein’s strong equivalence principle!
How do large sunspot groups affect long-term and short-term variations in solar activity?
The Milky Way’s nearest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, is a promising target for deep multi-wavelength observations. Come listen to Prof. Julianne Dalcanton talk about her work catching up with the neighbor at #AAS233!
Why is our Sun so anomalously stable in brightness compared to other stars? The authors of today’s paper decided to run some simulations to find out.
There are a lot of Sun-like stars in the universe. Are they as identical as the name suggests, or are there important differences between them?
I attempt to summarize what some astronomers have called “undoubtedly the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
