How does the distance affects the stars we see?

With increasing distance fainter stars, and therefore those of lower luminosity, older populations, become less observable. This means that with increasing distance we actually probe different parts of a Color-Magnitude diagram (CMD), which mainly consists of the brightest and more evolved massive stars. This is best shown in this figure …

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, …

Contributions to the 16th Hellenic Astronomical Conference

Between 26-28 of July (2023), I managed to participate in-person the 16th Hellenic Astronomical Conference, held in Athens. I personally contributed with one talk and one poster (long gone the days that I would submit two talks!), which was part of the ASSESS group’s contribution with another two talks, and …

New paper: X-Shooting ULLYSES: massive stars at low metallicity I. Project Description

It was back in 2020 during the pandemic that the first call for the XShootU collaboration was sent. I had really little idea of what would follow, but I fount it definitely motivating to participate. Therefore I volunteer to help with the data reduction. After 2.5 years we are getting …

New paper: A new automated tool for the spectral classification of OB stars

This paper is a result of an attempt that started way back during my PhD thesis actually. back then in early 2010’s we started investigating a way to automate the spectral classification of Be X-ray binaries. The problem with these sources is that due to the strong emission in the …
