In today’s paper, learn about the strange behavior of a variable star, and a possible explanation for its strange behavior: an invisible dancing partner!
In a magical act some stars could vanish from the night sky, today’s bite asks: can we can see them again as black holes?
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.
Today’s paper leverages a predicted astrometric microlensing event to study an isolated white dwarf and test stellar evolution theories.
Stars of various temperatures and sizes slow down at different rates– and to different extents. The authors of this paper address this distinction in a regime never before addressed observationally.
