Idan Ginsburg, featured in Time Science

On April 2, 2012 by Grad Forum

Physics and Astronomy PhD student, Idan Ginsburg, and his supervisor Gary Wegner have recently had their work featured in Time Science.

“[The article] discusses the study of hypervelocity stars—a phenomenon that occurs when a star gets too close to the gravitational force of the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way—sending the stars and planets flying away at incredibly high rates of speed. New research conducted by Dartmouth astrophysics graduate student Idan Ginsburg and Professor of Physics and Astronomy Gary Wegner points to the potential for the fleeing hypervelocity stars to be accompanied by planets.”
