Evidence of a White-Light Flare on 10 September 1886 (Vaquero et al. 2017, SPh, 292, 33). 

A fantastic outreach paper describing the importance of this flare and  the guy that discovered it has been written by Enrique Sacristán for the 'Agencia Española para la Ciencia y La Tecnología.'

This flare is the third one ever observed, and was discovered by a 17 yr old boy from Santa Cruz de Tenerife called Juan Valderrama y Aguilar. Who was this guy? If you are interested ... stay tunned. We (M. Vázquez and I) will publish his atonishing bio soon.  


Monograph on Gas Accretion onto Galaxies, Astrophysics and Space Science Library, eds. A. J. Fox & R. Davé, to be published by Springer, 2017. 

I wrote one of the Chapters 'Gas Accretion and Star Formation rates' 


Believe it or not, we (Amanda+) got observing time at the 4.2m WHT to check whether

a signal was produced by an alien civilization

 


Paper on the kinematics of the magnificent 10. Amanda's 1st paper. We got huge mass loading factors!!!!! (see the figure). This is both expected and surprising. 

 


Very interesting meeting Xing the RubiconVery inspiring meeting on gas flows in galaxies organized by F. Fraternali and M. Brusa. The link in the poster leads to the program, which contains the PDFs of the various presentations, including mine.


In depth study of this beautifull tadpole galaxy

This is a interview to Debra and Bruce  Elmegreen about it in New Scientist, and this other is the link to the paper

In addition, there is a press release of the Hubble Space Telescope Science Institite  (STScI-2016-23), and the IAC also publised its own press release (in spanish)

The news appeared in the mass media, e.g., dailymail(UK),  USAToday,  and may others

 

   Debra and Bruce at the IAC (2014)

 


The magnificent 10 letter is OUT !

Like cosmic spiders, dwarf galaxies have been caught feasting on blobs of gas spread across a hidden web...

This is the starting sentence of a short interview in New Scientist about the relevance of the work.

It is also a paper highlighted by the American Astronomical Society  in this webpage

There is finally this press release at the IAC website (Spanish). Muy Interesante

google 'como se alimenta una galaxia'

 


Recipe for interpreting galaxy spectra

The recipe is detailled in this ApJ paper



The Sun is a miasma of incandescent plasma   ... even kids know.
