PSR 1257+12 and Exoplanets
Artwork of the millisecond pulsar known as PSR 1257+12, located 3000 light-years away in the constellation of Virgo. The star, with spins once every 0.006219 seconds, is also known as Lich. Surprisingly, this pulsar - a neutron star emitting beams of...

Supernova Progenitor HD265435
Astronomers led by a team from Warwick University have found a binary star which they believe is heading towards a supernova. Light variations from the system (called HD265435) indicate that the larger star is distorted into a teardrop shape by its d...

HD 209458 - V3a
HD 209458 is a star with an extrasolar planet. The planet, HD 209458b or Osiris, orbits so close to its parent star (only a few stellar diameters away) that star's stellar wind is gradually stripping away the planet's atmosphere, to form a long, come...
