Neighboring exoplanets appear to come in similar sizes. But is this a result of observational bias?
Survival rates of Kuiper Belt Objects with binary companions are used to determine the history of the Solar System.
We can learn a lot about the history of the universe from the stars we see in the night sky today. In today’s astrobite, we look at the history that certain carbon-enhanced, metal-poor stars might be trying to tell.
Let’s take a closer look at planet formation via core accretion. Does the accretion physics let us decipher other secrets of a planet long after the accretion is over?
According to one theory of planet formation, the secret to forming massive planets is through itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny pebbles of dust. In today’s astrobite, we explore what sort of planets these little pebbles could form.
… and therefore more powerful. Describing dark matter as a fluid allows us to model dark matter candidates with great accuracy.
