Five new candidates have been identified for barred spiral galaxies whose bars are currently buckling. These candidates, found using a kinematic signature, more than double the number of candidate buckling bars.

Edwin S. Kite and Laura Schaefer 2021 ApJL 909 L22

A new model predicts that most rocky planets that have orbital periods of 10–100 days and that have radii within 0.1–0.2 Earth radii of the lower edge of the radius valley can still retain water-dominated atmospheres.

Matteo Messa et al 2021 ApJ 909 121

Observations of a sample of 100 extincted star clusters suggest that typical timescales for clearing the natal gas cloud are in between 3 and 5 Myr, roughly 1 Myr older than found in previous studies.
