A gravitational-wave standard siren measurement of the Hubble constant
TLDR
A measurement of the Hubble constant is reported that combines the distance to the source inferred purely from the gravitational-wave signal with the recession velocity inferred from measurements of the redshift using the electromagnetic data.
Localization and broadband follow-up of the gravitational-wave transient GW150914
A gravitational-wave (GW) transient was identified in data recorded by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors on 2015 September 14. The event, initially
The IAC Morphological Catalog of Northern Galactic Planetary Nebulae
Planetary Nebulae (PNs) are highly representative of the late stages of intermediate mass stellar evolution. However, there are still many unresolved questions in their evolutionary scheme. Mass loss
Significant and variable linear polarization during the prompt optical flash of GRB 160625B
TLDR
The authors' measurements probe the structure of the magnetic field at an early stage of the jet, closer to its central black hole, and show that the prompt phase is produced via fast-cooling synchrotron radiation in a large-scale magnetic field that is advected from the black hole and distorted by dissipation processes within the jet.
Observations, compositional, and physical characterization of near-Earth and Mars-crosser asteroids from a spectroscopic survey
Aims. We analyse a significantly large sample of spectroscopic data to provide a compositional characterization of the near-Earth asteroid population. We present visible and near-infrared spectra of
Time Delay in QSO 0957+561 From 1984-1999 Optical Data
Photometric optical data of QSO 0957+561 covering the period 1984-1999 are analyzed to discern between the two values of the time delay (417 and 424 days) mostly accepted in the recent literature.
MASTER Optical Detection of the First LIGO/Virgo Neutron Star Binary Merger GW170817
Following the discovery of the gravitational-wave source GW170817 by three Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO)/Virgo antennae (Abbott et al., 2017a), the MASTER Global Robotic
Modeling the photometric and dynamical behavior of Super-Schmidt meteors in the Earth's atmosphere
Faint meteors observed with Super-Schmidt cameras are re-examined in order to assess whether their dynamical and photometric behavior can be described by means of the single body theory. Velocities,
The Rotation Period of C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp)
C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp) was observed in daylight on 16 days between 1997 April 1 and 1997 April 28, five of which had long time sequences (up to 10 hr of data), using the near infrared CAIN camera on
Support for the Gravitational Lens Interpretation of SBS 0909+532
The system SBS 0909+532A, B is a double consisting of a quasar and a fainter component that was, until now, spectroscopically unresolved. Spectra taken in good seeing conditions (FWHM=1'') with the
