Another interview for #BlackInAstroWeek! We interview Dr. Carl E. Fields, a rising star studying core-collapse supernovae using computer simulations and one of the #BlackInAstro co-organizers!
A newly discovered dwarf galaxy near the Local Group appears to be young and lonely and it shut off star formation. What could be responsible for the quenching if there are no nearby bright galaxies?
Today’s undergraduate post talks about how to use machine learning to find transients in galactic spectra!
The dust destruction efficiency of supernovae may not be a high as we previously thought. Why is this, and what can it tell us about star formation?
We may have detected a lot of fast radio bursts this year, but the journey to discover where they come from is far from complete!
Heavy elements require extreme conditions to be produced. Today’s bite explores three unique stars that may give us additional clues on how that happens.
