Astronomers model, determine how disk galaxies evolve so smoothly — ScienceDaily

Computer simulations are showing astrophysicists how massive clumps of gas within galaxies scatter some stars from their orbits, eventually creating the smooth, exponential fade in the brightness of many galaxy…

Astronomers Discover ‘Pi Earth’ With 3.14-Day Orbit

Astronomers have discovered a charming coincidence of mathematics in the heavens: An exoplanet that orbits its star every 3.14 days. The Earth-sized planet has been dubbed the “pi Earth” due…
