Black Hole-Neutron Star Collision Detected

 In late April of 2019, two sets of gravitational waves observations were detected by a pair of American observatories as well as by one in Italy. The signals come from a neutron star merger, but the second set of signals suggests evidence of a black hole-neutron star collision, which scientists did not imagine was possible.  [...]

“Collapsar” May Have Supplied Universe With Gold

For a long time, the generation of elements remained a mystery for scientists. A new study suggests that many of the universe’s heavy elements are generated from rapidly whirling collapsing stars.    The lightest elements, hydrogen, helium, and lithium, were formed shortly after the Big Bang, and elements up to iron were formed later mostly [...]

Half The Universe’s Supply of Plutonium Came From This One Event

Plutonium is a rare element on Earth, and recent research suggests that half of the universe’s supply of it comes from a single event: a neutron star merger. However, plutonium is not the only element to come out of this process; these mergers help to create many other actinides, or elements with an atomic number [...]

The Most Important Telescopes in Astronomy

Telescopes are important tools in astronomy that allow us to see celestial objects that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. By definition, telescopes are optical instruments that make distant objects appear magnified, but the technology that allows them to do so varies. Some historians credit the creation of the first optical telescope to [...]
