In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Yuxin Dong explores the origins of Calcium-rich transients, a peculiar type of supernovae
Today’s authors discovered a kilonova associated with a long gamma-ray burst! Read on to hear about how this might flip the gamma-ray burst world upside down.
The authors of today’s paper seek to uncover what is occulted in the final moments of a massive star’s death. To this end, they outline the feasibility of measuring the background flux of “relic neutrinos” and connect them to their origins.
Type Ia supernovae’s dimmer cousin, type II supernovae, take a shot at measuring the Hubble constant.
Today’s paper uses radio observations to look for gold in special supernovae!
More radiant than typical supernovae- superluminous supernovae- have a mysterious source of power. Some show odd bumps and wiggles late in their evolution.
