What can outflowing gas tell us about the connection between rapid galaxy growth and AGN activity?
Could star-forming galaxies answer some of the mysteries of high-energy astrophysics? Signs point to yes.
Astronomers study a gravitationally lensed emission line galaxy, with implications for the characteristics of early galaxy populations.
How do galaxies transform from blue, star-forming discs into the massive red-and-dead ellipticals that we observe so frequently? Post-starburst galaxies, caught in this transition phase, might hold the answers to this puzzle in galaxy evolution.
There are nearly 10,000 galaxies in this image, with a staggering variety of shapes, colors, sizes, and ages. But buried beneath that variety, we can find patterns in how galaxies morph and evolve over time. Today’s astrobite explores one such set of links in the giant chains of galaxy evolution.
