Newly born neutron star detected in nearby supernova
Newly born neutron star detected in nearby supernova
An international team of astronomers including UCL's Professor Mike Barlow has discovered the first conclusive evidence that a neutron star exists at the centre of Supernova 1987A, a star explosion observed 37 years ago. Supernovae are the spectacular end result of the collapse of stars more massive than 8-10 times the mass of the sun.

Dust cloud from two colliding ice planets dims light of parent star
For the first time, an international group of astronomers have seen the heat glow of two giant ice planets colliding, and the resultant dust cloud move in front of the parent star several years later. The star ASASSN-21qj - named after the network of telescopes that first detected the fading of the star at visible wavelengths - was then studied intensively by a network of amateur and professional astronomers including those at The University of Warwick, who monitored the changes in the star's brightness over the next two years.

Second James Webb image of Ring Nebula hints at dying star’s companion
A beautiful new image of the Ring Nebula captured by the James Webb Space Telescope, which reveals new features in the outer regions of the ring, has been released by ESA, NASA and CSA and an international team co-led by a UCL astronomer. The image, from James Webb's MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument) ( on the right of the main image above ), complements an image issued earlier this month, showing the Ring Nebula at shorter wavelengths of infrared light, taken by James Webb's NIRCam (Near Infrared Camera) ( above left ).
