Astronomy News with the Cosmic Companion January 14, 2020

This week, we look at how astronomers may find life on distant exoplanets, and we examine the deaths of stars and the formation of black holes. One black hole may not be as large as was originally measured, while another may not be there at all. The TESS spacecraft finds a planet orbiting a pair of stars, and a massive exoplanet is seen spiraling toward its sun. Water is seen leaving Mars at a far greater rate than expected, and new calculations shed new light on the deaths of stars.
