Latest Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Stories
Astronomers investigating behavior of the universe shortly after the Big Bang have made a surprising discovery: the properties of the early universe are determined by the smallest galaxies.
An international team of astronomers led by David Pinfield of the University of Hertfordshire has found a brown dwarf that is more than 99% hydrogen and helium.
Astronomers from the University of Bonn in Germany have discovered a vast structure of satellite galaxies and clusters of stars surrounding our Galaxy, stretching out across a million light years.
A spectacularly bright object recently spotted in one of the Milky Way's neighboring galaxies is the result of a "normal" stellar black hole, astronomers have found.
For the first time ever, astronomers have discovered buckminsterfullerines existing in a solid form in space, according to a study published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
The center of just about every galaxy is thought to host a black hole, some with masses of thousands of millions of Suns and consequently strong gravitational pulls that disrupt material around them.
An international group of astronomers has discovered extraordinarily long one-sided gaseous tails in two groups of galaxies that are amongst the longest structures ever observed in such environments.
Fat doughnut-shaped dust shrouds that obscure about half of supermassive black holes could be the result of high speed crashes between planets and asteroids.
Two researchers from Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg have revealed for the first time the existence of a new signature of the birth of the first stars in our galaxy, the Milky Way.
Not all stars are loners. In our home galaxy, the Milky Way, about half of all stars have a companion and travel through space in a binary system.
Astronomy & Geophysics (A&G) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS). It was established in 1960 as The Quarterly Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society; the name was changed in 1997. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Sue Bowler (University of Leeds). The journal covers astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, planetary science, solar-terrestrial physics, global and regional geophysics, and the history...
The Astronomical Journal (AJ) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal ran by the American Astronomical Society and published monthly by the Institute of Physics Publishing. It is one of the premier astronomy journals in the world. It was published by the University of Chicago Press until 2008. The society also owns the Astrophysical Journal. The journal was established in 1849 by Benjamin A. Gould. In 1861, publication was ceased due to the American Civil War. It went unpublished until 1885....
Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific is a monthly scientific journal managed by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and published by the University of Chicago Press. It has been in publication since 1899, and is one of the premier journals for astronomical research, along with The Astrophysical Journal, The Astronomical Journal, Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. This journal publishes astronomy research, review papers,...
