Japanese scientists use ALMA to explain aluminum oxide enrichment around AGB stars
This is meant to provide a brief analysis to explain the origin of several of the animal figures from the Gobekli Tepe temple site in Turkey, arising about 9000 BC and haralded as the earliest (known) temple of the world.
An international team of astronomers from Chile and Germany has managed to capture an image of unprecedented detail of another star — that isn’t the Sun — the red supergiant star Antares. The team has also made the first map of the velocities of material in the atmosphere of a star other than the Sun, revealing unexpected turbulence in the extended atmosphere of Antares.
It’s an explosive detective story.
The smallest star yet measured has been discovered by a team of astronomers. With a size just a sliver larger than that of Saturn, the gravitational pull at its stellar surface is about 300 times stronger than what humans feel on Earth.
Astronomers have identified another rare example of an extreme helium star.
Observations suggest that black holes swallow doomed stars whole, increasing the mystery surrounding these celestial monsters
Some have cast doubt about the existence of black hole event horizons from which nothing, not even light, can escape the gravitational pull.
