    held onto their companion stars Heinz notes It is much rarer still to observe the hallmark of a supernova explosion the glowing cloud of ionized gas created by the shock wave of the blast as it crashes into the interstellar gas around the stars The shock wave from a supernova can only be seen for about 100 000 years or so before it dissipates and merges with the rest of the gas and dust around it in space says Sell This is only a small fraction of the lifetime of an X ray binary making the chance to find one in this early phase of its life very small The fact that we have this remnant along with the neutron star and its companion means we can test all kinds of things says Heinz Our observations solve a number of puzzles both about this object and the way that neutron stars evolve after they are born For example the unusual elliptical orbit on which these two stars swing around each other is exactly what you would expect for a very young X ray binary notes Heinz However the observations also pose new questions Previous X ray observations revealed that the Circinus X 1 s neutron star has a relatively small magnetic field General theory holds neutron stars are born with a large magnetic field says Heinz This newly minted neutron star has a field much smaller than expected Why that s the case remains a mystery Circinus X 1 appears to be a unique X ray binary probably in large part because it is so young adds Sell now a post doctoral fellow at Texas Tech University Twitter Facebook Other Articles Formation of blue straggler stars revealed through Hubble Space Telescope observations A Blast From its Past Dates Youngest Known Neutron Star Binary SKA Pathfinders A Bright Radio Future Probing Missing Baryons with Jets in Galaxy Groups MaNGA Puts Department on Leading Edge of Integral Field Unit Science Puzzle of how spiral galaxies get their arms comes into focus High Res Simulations Help Solve Missing Massive Satellites Problem A slow spinning pulsar lights up its cradle A Laboratory for Early Stage Star Formation Fountain of Youth How Blue Stragglers Stay Young Turbulence Rocking the Galaxy GPU Computing Where Science Meets Games Neutron Star Fires Powerful Jets Related Links UW Press Release on Circinus X 1 NASA Press Release on Circinus X 1 NASA blog describing the discovery in more detail About Us General Information Contact Us Department History Historical Images Our People Directory Faculty Emeriti Scientists Tech Staff Post Docs Grad Students Office Staff Our Science Research Areas Stars Stellar Systems WOCS Blue Stragglers Stellar Dynamics Angular Momentum in Solar Type Stars Massive Stars Magnetospheres Winds Pulsation Rotation GPU Computing Interacting Binaries Plasma Astrophysics Plasma and Turbulence Studies Compact Objects Theoretical Plasma Astrophysics Interstellar Intergalactic Media WHAM GALFA Plasma and Turbulence Studies Theoretical Plasma Astrophysics GLIMPSE Galactic Astronomy WHAM Fabry Perot Spectroscopy Technical Description Science Results Galactic Structure GALFA GLIMPSE

    of galaxies in small galaxies without much gas and in clouds of neutral hydrogen that are seemingly not associated with an individual galaxy To complement LADUMA Wilcots and Bershady are using SALT Southern African Large Telescope for optical spectra to help in stacking the radio data from hundreds of galaxies to determine the average gas content of faint objects that would otherwise be unobservable The LADUMA team consists of 67 astronomers from nine countries on five different continents Preliminary observations will begin with the completion of the first seven MeerKAT dishes and fully ramp up when the array is completed GASKAP Professor Snezana Stanimirovic and Scientist Bart Wakker are part of the GASKAP Galactic ASKAP survey to study the so called 21 cm neutral hydrogen spin flip emission line and the 18 cm lines of hydroxyl in the Galactic plane and Magellanic Clouds The project will be done with the ASKAP and is one of the ten survey science projects selected as top priorities for the first five years of ASKAP operations Several additional department members Professors Jay Gallagher Alex Lazarian and Ellen Zweibel and Scientist Matt Haffner plan to join GASKAP science exploration once the data start flowing 21 SPONGE Stanimorovic with graduate student Claire Murray postdoctoral fellow Robert Lindner and several undergraduate students Nick Pingel and Al Lawrence is undertaking a large pathfinder project with the JVLA called 21 SPONGE 21 cm SPectral line Observations of Neutral Gas with the Enhanced JVLA It is the most sensitive HI absorption line survey measuring the temperature distribution of the neutral interstellar gas In the future 21 SPONGE will be complemented by GASKAP While GASKAP will focus on the Galactic plane mapping about 1 650 square degrees and covering about 5 000 radio continuum sources the 21 SPONGE survey is focusing on high latitude Galactic regions with much higher sensitivity CHILES Professors Eric Wilcots and Matt Bershady former Badgers D J Pisano West Virginia University Laura Chomiuk Michigan State University and Kelley Hess University of Cape Town and new grad student Charee Peters are involved in CHILES COSMOS HI Large Extragalactic Survey Measurements of neutral hydrogen are essential to our understanding of the universe Unfortunately our observational information on HI is mostly limited to the nearby universe CHILES will use the JVLA to image neutral hydrogen in at least 300 galaxies with a wide range of stellar mass The deep field will be able to probe the gas reservoirs around small galaxies CHILES will provide hydrogen gas masses morphology and kinematics for galaxies spanning a wide range of masses and environments Our department has a long standing research emphasis on gas phase physical processes ranging from stars to galaxy clusters The SKA pathfinders will allow observational studies directly aligned with this expertise that will offer us a unique opportunity for discovery A coordinated observational theoretical numerical approach will enable us to take full advantage of upcoming observing facilities in the next decade and make a big stride forward in understanding galaxy
