New Publication at the Open Journal of Astrophysics!

We seem to be having an end-of-year rush and have published yet another new paper at The Open Journal of Astrophysics!

Here is a grab of the overlay:

The authors are Aditi Krishak (IISER Bhopal) and Shantanu Desai (IIT Hyderabad), both in India.

You can find the accepted version on the arXiv here. This is another one for the `Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics’ section with a cross-listing in `Instrumentation and Methods for Astrophysics’, both of which are proving rather popular.

We would be very happy to get more submissions from other areas, especially Stellar and Planetary astrophysics. Hint! Hint!

P.S. Just a reminder that we now have an Open Journal of Astrophysics Facebook page where you can follow updates from the Journal should you so wish..

`How Physical Cosmology Grew’ – The Nobel Lecture of Jim Peebles

It seems like yesterday when I heard the news that Jim Peebles had been awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics, but this week the man himself has been in Stockholm receiving the honour amid a number of press engagements and other formalities including the Nobel Lecture, which has now appeared on Youtube and is well worth watching if you’re at all interested in cosmology!
