AGB Stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud are Shrouded in Iron Dust

AGB Stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud are Shrouded in Iron Dust

Through a combination of theoretical models and Infrared observations, Researchers found a specific group of Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars that shrouded in a high fraction of iron dust.   This latest research, published in the journal ‘The Astrophysical Journal Letters’, compared the Infrared observations of the Spitzer Space Telescope with the theoretical models of…

A Famous Nova was actually not a Nova

A Famous Nova was actually not a Nova

Nova Vulpeculae 1670 is merely a collision between two dwarf stars. The term ‘Nova (Novae)’ refers to a transient astronomical event that causes sudden appearance of a bright, apparently new star which gradually fades away over several weeks. In some cases, the fading process may take many months. All the novae, which have been observed…

Einstein’s Theory of Gravity passes yet another Test

Einstein’s Theory of Gravity passes yet another Test

An international team of researchers have shown that Einstein’s insights into gravity hold true, even in extreme scenarios. Albert Einstein came up with a theory in 1905 which said that the laws of Physics are exactly the same for the observers who are either at rest or moving with uniform velocity. Similarly, the speed of…

Binaries from Milky Way to be detected

Binaries from Milky Way to be detected

A gravitational wave detector that might emerge to the scene in 16 years will allow humans to detect binaries in the universe. There are infinite numbers of components that exist in the galaxy. All the elements that articulate our galaxy play a vital role. Some of these matters are more common such as stars, planets,…
