New paper: X-Shooting ULLYSES: Massive Stars at low metallicity: II. DR1: Advanced optical data products for the Magellanic Clouds

Paper II of the XShootU collaboration is finally accepted at A&A! That is a cornerstone paper for the collaboration since it presents the analysis of the observations and provides the final scientific products with which the whole collaboration (and everybody else) can work with. X-Shooting ULLYSES: Massive Stars at low …

New paper: Investigating episodic mass loss in evolved massive stars: I. Spectroscopy of dusty massive stars in ten southern galaxies

A paper that collectively presents the results from our intensive observing campaign in the ASSESS project, focusing on the southern galaxies (a forthcoming paper will deal with the northern ones). Investigating episodic mass loss in evolved massive stars: I. Spectroscopy of dusty massive stars in ten southern galaxies A.Z. Bonanos, …

New paper: Introducing the ASSESS project: Episodic Mass Loss in Evolved Massive Stars – Key to Understanding the Explosive Early Universe

This is the paper that describes the ASSESS project for which I have been working since 2018 ! Introducing the ASSESS project: Episodic Mass Loss in Evolved Massive Stars – Key to Understanding the Explosive Early Universe A.Z. Bonanos, G. Maravelias, M. Yang, F. Tramper, S. de Wit, E. Zapartas, …

New paper: Discovering New B[e] Supergiants and Candidate Luminous Blue Variables in Nearby Galaxies

Although I thought at the beginning that this would be a quick paper, it took considerable time to complete! Thanks a lot to Stephan that did significant work with figures I was able to focus on the text and the discussion. This is the first work to reveal B[e] Supergiants …

New Paper: Evolved Massive Stars at Low-metallicity V. Mass-Loss Rate of Red Supergiant Stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud

Evolved Massive Stars at Low-metallicity V. Mass-Loss Rate of Red Supergiant Stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud Ming Yang (杨明), Alceste Z. Bonanos, Biwei Jiang (姜碧沩), Emmanouil Zapartas, Jian Gao (高健), Yi Ren(任逸), Man I Lam (林敏仪), Tianding Wang (王天丁), Grigoris Maravelias, Panagiotis Gavras, Shu Wang (王舒), Xiaodian Chen (陈孝钿), …

New paper: Environments of evolved massive stars – evidence for episodic mass ejections

A proceedings paper from IAUS 366 that took place virtually back in October 2021 (for which I had another poster contribution) was finally published at the end of 2022. It summarizes a collective work led by Michaela on B[e] Supergiants and Yellow Hypergiants, two massive star phases where we observe …

New Paper: Properties of luminous red supergiant stars in the Magellanic Clouds

Properties of luminous red supergiant stars in the Magellanic Clouds S. de Wit, A.Z. Bonanos, F. Tramper, M. Yang, G. Maravelias, K. Boutsia, N. Britavskiy, and E. Zapartas There is evidence that some red supergiants (RSGs) experience short lived phases of extreme mass loss, producing copious amounts of dust. These …

New paper: Using machine learning to investigate the populations of dusty evolved stars in various metallicities

This is actually a preview of what will follow after the first paper of the machine-learning classifier. We put it into action to get predictions for a number of galaxies and we start exploring the results. Of more interest is the fractions of the populations with metallicity, although a more …

New Paper: A machine-learning photometric classifier for massive stars in nearby galaxies I. The method

This is the first paper that results from my work with the ASSESS team over the last years. It focuses on the development of a machine-learning photometric classifier to characterize massive stars originating from IR (Spitzer) catalogs, which will help us understand the episodic mass loss. The first paper presents …

New Paper: Amateur Observers Witness the Return of Venus’ Cloud Discontinuity

The following paper is the result of a tedious task that my good friend Manos Kardasis undertook over the last two+ years. He noticed the presence of this (relatively newly discovered) feature in Venus and collected images from amateur observers worldwide to study in detail the discontinuity and constrain some …
