Gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger observed by LIGO and Virgo

for cosmic events that produce gravitational waves and emissions of light, such as the collision of neutron stars.” “As we increase the number of observatories in the international gravitational wave…

Astrophysics Colloquium–Order Out of Chaos: Towards Understanding Galaxy Formation in the Cosmological Context (Speaker: Andrey Kravtsov, University of Chicago)

formation, galaxies exhibit a number of striking regularities, such as tight correlations between galaxy sizes, masses, luminosities, and internal velocities and surprisingly tight correlations between properties of stars and gas…

First light from a super-Earth spotted

…the heat from its parent star — much as Earth’s dark oceans trap heat from the sun. Since the planet’s discovery in 2004, scientists have unearthed a number of its…

A far-off solar system

…out of the system while bringing others closer to their stars. Recently, scientists have identified a number of hot Jupiter systems, all of which have tilted orbits. But to really…

IAP 2020 — Brodi Elwood: Searching for Axion Dark Matter with Birefringent (1/21/2020)

…the detectability of these particles with laser interferometers has recently revealed a number of promising experimental designs. Inspired by these ideas, we propose the Axion Detection with Birefringent Cavities (ADBC)…

MIT astronomers discover new galaxy clusters hiding in plain sight

…into the broader cosmic picture. At this point, they don’t know whether a small number of clusters are always in this strange, Phoenix-like state, or if this is perhaps a…

CHIME telescope detects more than 500 mysterious fast radio bursts in its first year of operation

…in 2007, radio astronomers have only caught sight of around 140 bursts in their scopes. Now, a large stationary radio telescope in British Columbia has nearly quadrupled the number of…

Astrophysics Brown Bag Lunch Talk 9/12/2022: Speakers: Casey Lam (Berkeley) and Uddipan Banik (Yale)

…of the candidates (OGLE-2011-BLG-0462/MOA-2011-BLG-191) is likely a neutron star or BH. The full sample of 5 candidates is compared to theoretical expectations on the number of BHs in the Milky…

TESS Science Office at MIT hits milestone of 5,000 exoplanet candidates

…Kunimoto reflects, “This time last year, TESS had found just over 2,400 TOIs. Today, TESS has reached more than twice that number — a huge testament to the mission and…

LSST: Entering the Era of Petascale Optical Astronomy (Speaker: Mario Juric, LSST/University of Washington)

…and management system, highlighting a number of differences and novel approaches compared to previous surveys. More generally, I will discuss implications of petascale data sets on astronomy in the 2020s…
