Tatooine's Future: Dynamical Evolution of Planets Orbiting Two Stars
Science fiction has long teased our imaginations with tales of planets with two suns. How these planets form and evolve, and their survival prospects, are active fields of research. Expanding on previous work, four new ...
Volatile Ice Deposits in Lunar Polar Regions and Their Sources
An amalgamation of code adapted from Schorghofer  and Moores  was used to simulate the movement of volatiles on the present-day surface of the Moon. The trapping of volatiles in permanently shadowed regions ...
Monitoring Broad Absorption-Line Quasar Variability
Winds generated by an accreting super massive black hole may provide feedback to the host galaxy and offer an explanation for the co-evolution of galaxies with their super massive black holes that has been reported in the ...
Photometric Calibrations of Metallicity and Temperature For M Dwarfs
Based on a carefully collected sample of dwarf stars, a new empirical photometric calibration to estimate the metallicity of late-type K and early-to-mid-type M dwarfs is presented. The calibration sample has two parts; ...
Resolving the Stellar Populations of Clumpy Star-Forming Galaxies Using Finite Resolution Deconvolution
Understanding the physical details of when and where stars form within galaxies remains as one of the key goals in extragalactic astronomy. Kiloparsec-scale, star-forming structures found in distant, irregular galaxies are ...
