Constraining bosonic asymmetric dark matter with neutron star mass-radius measurements

no code yet • 5 Aug 2022

Neutron stars can capture asymmetric dark matter (ADM), which affects the neutron star's measurable properties and makes compact objects prime targets to search for ADM.

A dusty starburst masquerading as an ultra-high redshift galaxy in JWST CEERS observations

no code yet • 3 Aug 2022

Due to the (redshifted) break produced by neutral hydrogen absorption of rest-frame UV photons, these sources are expected to drop out in the bluer filters like F150W and F200W while being well-detected in redder filters (e. g., F277W, F356W, F444W).

JWST reveals a population of ultra-red, flattened disk galaxies at 2<z<6 previously missed by HST

no code yet • 2 Aug 2022

Here we report on a first view of starlight from a subset of the HST-dark population that are bright with JWST/NIRCam (4. 4$\mu$m<24. 5mag) and very faint or even invisible with HST ($<$1. 6$\mu$m).

Orbital dynamics landscape near the most distant known trans-Neptunian objects

katvolk/tno-res-maps 3 Aug 2022

Nearly half (11) of these TNOs have orbits consistent with stable libration in Neptune's resonances; in particular, the orbits of TNOs 148209 and 474640 overlap with Neptune's 20:1 and 36:1 resonances, respectively.

Giant radio sources (GRSs) defined to be > 0. 7 Mpc are the largest single objects in the Universe and can be associated with both galaxies (GRGs) and quasars (GRQs).
