Join us today as we look at how quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of general relativity work together in white dwarfs. Machine learning is used to find a galaxy with an extremely low abundance of oxygen. Scientists find signs of a neutron star in supernova 1987A. And researchers managed to locate two recently arrived meteorites in Australia with the help of fireball detection cameras.
