Today’s paper describes a star that spoke its final words in the form of a long brightening before exploding as a supernova!
There’s a problem with dark matter, and two possible solutions: bright, luminous supernovae, or dark matter itself.
Where does the dust in the universe come from? Today’s bite explains that luminous blue variables, a rare type of evolved massive star, may be the second most important producer of dust in galaxies.
Today’s paper investigates a mysterious stellar explosion that resulted when a black hole or a neutron star crashed into a star.
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?
