Today’s undergraduate research post is seeking to automatically identify variable stars in the upcoming all sky survey, LSST. Read on to find out more!
ASAS-SN searches for supernova and finds variable stars too! They found so many (~90,000) that they decided to classify them all. How do you go about classifying 90,000 things? Machine learning, of course!
What if we used stars other than Cepheids to measure distances?
Happy International Women’s Day. This astrobite investigates how astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt’s work changed our understanding of the size of the universe!
