    Panning for gold with things that go bang in the night

    Abstract: Electromagnetic follow-up observations of the gravitational wave-detected binary neutron star merger (NSM) GW1701817 suggested that material ejected from the accretion disk formed in the merger underwent a robust r-process nucleosynthesis, producing heavy elements like Au, Pt, and Eu. These observations seemed to answer a long-standing question about the origin of the heaviest elements in the Universe. However, the conditions that characterize the disks formed in NSMs are also found in other systems,...

    The precessing gas rings around WD1145+017

    Abstract: Approximately 30% of white dwarfs are polluted by metals, the result of accretion onto the stellar surface by rocky bodies that have been tidally disrupted. These systems thus offer a direct window onto the interior composition of rocky planetesimals. Disks of these metals are also observed in emission around a subset of polluted white dwarfs from which the radial extent of the orbiting gas has been determined. The (so far) geometrically-unique polluted white dwarf WD1145+017 provides a different perspective on the gaseous...
