Professors Scott Gaudi and Andy Gould, Postdoctoral Researchers Matthew Penny and Radek Poleski, and former PhD student Calen Henderson, are part of a 17-member international team who received NASA’s highly competitive Group Achievement Award for significant contributions to NASA's mission.
Astronomer Scott Gaudi, Thomas Jefferson Professor for Discovery and Space Exploration, co-led an international team that has discovered the hottest planet known. The team has been tracking the distinctly odd planet since mid-2014.
For the first time, astronomers have seen a dying star collapse directly into a black hole, rather than explode as a supernove. The star was about 25 times as massive as our Sun, and this fizzle could explain why astronomers rarely see the most massive stars explode.
