New insights into gamma-ray Burst afterglows

30 April 2014

New insights into gamma-ray Burst afterglowsGamma-ray bursts are powerful bursts of gamma radiation in connection with the explosive death of massive stars. The bursts themselves are short lived – typically less than a few minutes, but is followed by an afterglow that can be

Cosmic collision creates mini-planet with rings

26 March 2014

Cosmic collision creates mini-planet with rings Until now, rings of material in a disc have only been observed around giant planets like Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and especially Saturn, which is known for its spectacular rings. Now astronomers from NBI, have observed the first

Explosive growth of young star

04 December 2013

New research from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, shows that a young, newly formed star in the Milky Way had such an explosive growth, that it was initially about 100 times brighter than it is now
