The turmoil within the Pluto-Charon system offers insights into how planetary bodies orbiting a double star
As one of the first objects observed by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory after its launch some 15 years ago, this double star
system continues to reveal new clues about its nature through the X-rays it generates.
These results provided the clearest picture ever of protoplanetary disks around a double star
and could reveal important details about the birth and eventual orbit of planets in a multiple star system.
In work published in The Astrophysical Journal, the Monash and Warwick scientists significantly improved the precision with which they could measure the orbit of Scorpius X-1, a double star
system containing a neutron star that feeds off a nearby companion star.
Nine bright southern double stars
were measured and compared with observations made by Bob Argyle (from Cambridge University) using the 26" refractor in Johannesburg and the values listed in the Washington Double Star
The stars Alcor and Mizar form a naked-eye double star
that shows up nicely when observed with binoculars or a small telescope.
Given that three of the first five home all raced close to the pace, that was probably a better effort from Double Star
than it appeared at first glance.
Long-term observation of a true double star
allows its orbit to be calculated, which in turn provides an opportunity for the masses of the stars to be determined.
Using predictions from Occult Watcher (1) generated by Occult (2) via a feed from an IOTA-ES add-in, (3) we have successfully monitored a few double star
events, which did not indicate any duplicity within the temporal resolution of our recording systems.
For this project, 1 chose a Double Star
AR-15 lower receiver that I obtained at a gun show for approximately $85.
From the July 2002 KLIATT review of the book: "I would double star
this if KLIATT allowed such a thing
A star signifies the most intense stress in a phraselet; and a double star
signifies the most intense stress in the entire phrase.
