International collaboration including Vanderbilt astrophysicists discover ‘forbidden planet’

GettyImages-1040334020-e1689691518311
 Aging stars go through an incredible transformation—they expand to become hundreds of times larger than their original size and are believed to thus destroy any planets in their inner systems. The recent study, "A close-in giant planet escapes engulfment by its star" co-authored by Keivan Stassun, Stevenson Professor of Physics and Astronomy,...

3D radar scan provides clues about threats to iconic Alaskan glacier

Malaspina-Feature-Photo
 Mapping a large coastal glacier in Alaska revealed that its bulk sits below sea level and is undercut by channels, making it vulnerable to accelerated melting in an already deteriorating coastal habitat. A detailed "body scan" of Malaspina Glacier, one of Alaska's most iconic glaciers, revealed that its bulk lies below sea level and is underc...

MAGALOPS

causes_single_img3
 Our Milky Way is a complex interplay between stars, gas, dust, magnetic fields and cosmic rays. Of these elements we know the least so far about the magnetic fields. These fields are only partly and indirectly observable: current models are often only based on measured polarized radio emissions. Many questions about these magnetic fields rema...
