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.
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover Dorsa Majidi’s research on what it takes to create a new type of evolved stellar object!
How can tides help us find hidden compact companions and yield detailed physics on stellar binaries?
The Fault in our Star (Populations): Solving the Multiple Stellar Populations Problem with Dark Matter
Globular clusters have puzzled astronomers with the presence of different distinct populations of stars; is dark matter a possible solution to this problem?
What happens to planets when their host star dies? Today’s authors explore how HR 8799 could become a metal-polluted white dwarf in an unusual planetary system.
Using new observations from the UVCANDELS survey, a possible link between recent star formation, merger frequency, and the size-mass evolution of massive, quiescent galaxies is investigated.
