To solve the Crisis in Cosmology, astronomers are measuring the Hubble constant with magnetars, neutron stars with strong magnetic fields.
A simulation of a head on star collision. Both stars have disks of minor planets. This simulation shows how such events could affect them.
Astrophysicists count the number of mysterious population III stars by observing the imprints they leave in the cosmic microwave background.
Astronomers have discovered a planet that survived being engulfed by it’s star and influenced it’s evolution during it’s red giant phase.
Introduction Astronomers are continuing to increase our understanding of star formation. Recently, a team of astronomers led by Jimenez-Serra published a paper reporting their observations of a disk of gas and dust around a young massive star. In the paper, the astronomers report observations of warping indicating orbiting planets or a binary system as well […]
