Welcome to HL Tauri -- a star system that is just being born and the target of one of the most mind-blowing astronomical observations ever made. Continue reading â†’
Hubble has completed a detailed survey of stars with dusty circumstellar disks -- but their stunning variety has been a surprise to astronomers.
Astronomers were excited for a massive cloud of gas to fall into the black hole at the center of our galaxy, but it survived to tell the tale. What happened? Continue reading â†’
The glow of starlight bouncing off interstellar dust grains have been surveyed for the first time, highlighting a possible complication for the search for habitable exoplanets. Continue reading â†’
The morphology of a baby star's magnetic field is thought to impact the evolution of any planetary system -- and now astronomers have gained an insight to how complex these fields can be. Continue reading â†’
A nearby star is not acting its age, thanks to the influence of a massive exoplanet.
Mass and gravity are intimately related, so it stands to reason that the link between the Higgs boson and gravity is just as fundamental -- now astronomers are looking to the stars to actually test the finer details of this relationship. Continue reading â†’
Gravitational waves are hard to observe, but they could have a dramatic effect on stars that we could possibly detect. Continue reading â†’
