Giant flares emitted from the surface of highly magnetized neutron stars could explain some gamma-ray flashes astronomers have caught over the past few decades.
Astronomers have released a new, extremely detailed three-dimensional census of our Milky Way galaxy.
In-depth analysis of a flash of radio waves coming from a Milky Way magnetar have convinced astronomers: Magnetars produce at least some fast radio bursts.
Astronomers and citizen scientists have found two would-be stars lacking heavy elements. They’re most likely ancient survivors of our galaxy’s earliest days.
This week, astronomers announce a newborn magnetar and a fast radio burst that's bursting to a beat.
