Solar Systems Vary From Star Type to Star Type

Solar Systems Vary From Star Type to Star Type

In new research, scientists examined the populations of stars observed by the Kepler and K2 missions and found that the solar systems were different depending on the type of star involved. Plus, CHIME results, a brown dwarf’s atmosphere, a stream of stars in the Milky Way, and an interview with PSI’s Dr. Candice Hansen about the recent Ganymede flyby of NASA’s Juno spacecraft.

Scientists Generate 3D Model of Planetary Nebula From New Data

Scientists Generate 3D Model of Planetary Nebula From New Data

Using spectrographic data from several different telescopes, a team put together a three-dimensional model of planetary nebula NGC 1514, which allowed them to further study the shape and internal motion of the object. Plus, Antarctic sea ice, a history of current flow, magnetic waves, and an interview with astronaut Cady Coleman.

Discovery of Twin Supernovae Could Open Up Dark Energy Experiments

Discovery of Twin Supernovae Could Open Up Dark Energy Experiments

Researchers found that among about 50 supernovae, many had nearly identical spectra, paving the way for making more accurate distance calculations. These calculations, in turn, open up the possibility of using supernovae to better search for dark energy. Plus, OSIRIS-REx, Voyager I, planetary formation, and volcanoes on Mars.

Star Formation Occurs in Competitive Environment

Star Formation Occurs in Competitive Environment

A survey of the stellar nursery in the Orion Nebula Cluster provides evidence that stars compete for material and their size depends on what they gather rather than their initial core size. Plus, NASA mission updates, fast radio bursts, neutron stars, visible novae, and mountain building in the Andes.
