Astronomers Discover Parallel Disks and Jets Erupting from a Pair of Young Stars

Astronomers recently used two very different and powerful telescopes, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and NASA's James Webb Space Telescope's (JWST) Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI), to discover twin disks and twin parallel jets erupting from young stars in a multiple-star system. This discovery was unexpected and unprecedented, given the stars, disks, and jets' age, size, [...]

Origin of fast radio bursts came into focus through polarized light

An international team of astronomers suspects based on their findings that non-repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) probably originate from galaxies similar to our Milky Way. The team compared the polarised light from 128 of these non-repeating FRBs with repeating ones. The researchers published their results in The Astrophysical Journal with the title Polarization Properties of [...]
