In the protostellar phase, low-mass stars assemble most of their ultimate main-sequence masses from infalling envelopes. A major open question is whether the primary mode of protostellar mass accretion is gradual, featuring slow changes in the infall ...

One factor important to habitability is the impact of stellar eruptive events on nearby exoplanets. Currently this is poorly constrained due to heavy reliance on solar scaling relationships and a lack of experimental evidence. Low frequency dynamic ...

A subclass of supernova remnants (SNRs) produced by core-collapse supernova (SN) explosions contain pulsars that generate winds of synchrotron emitting relativistic particles. The evolution of these pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe) is closely coupled to th ...

The globular cluster (GC) system of the Milky Way (MW) provides important information on the MW’s present structure and past evolution. GCs in the halo are particularly useful tracers; because of their long dynamical timescales, their orbits retain i ...

Dominika Wylezalek (JHU)
Feedback from accreting supermassive black holes is now a standard ingredient in galaxy formation models. But while many compelling models of AGN feedback exist, there is no clear data-driven picture of how AGN-driven winds are launched, how they pro ...

The asymptotic giant branch (AGB) phase is one of the last phases of a star’s life. AGB stars lose mass in an outflow in which dust condenses and is pushed away from the star. Extreme AGB stars are so named because their very red colors suggest ver ...

The Large Ultraviolet, Optical, and Infrared Surveyor (LUVOIR) is one of the future mission concepts identified in the NASA Astrophysics Roadmap of 2014. NASA is currently funding studies of four such missions with the intent of identifying the scien ...

There is general agreement that the ISM of the Milky Way is arranged into a spiral-like pattern of some sort, though there is not yet agreement on how regular this spiral-like pattern is or how it evolves. To investigate this and other questions rela ...
