The circumgalactic and intergalactic media may contain the majority of baryonic matter in the universe, but their low density makes them extremely faint. Can an instrument designed to image low surface brightness objects help shed light on these ghostly structures?
Can exoplanetary systems remain intact in dense stellar environments, or are their exoplanets destined to be flung into the far reaches of space? N-body simulations hint at characteristics that lead to a higher likelihood of survival.
Observations of dim galaxies lensed by foreground clusters provides a way of measuring the progression of reionization.
What’s your power? The Know Your Power special session at #AAS233 will help identify what abilities astronomers have at different career stages to make positive changes within the field.
Observations from the MaNGA survey help to answer the question: What are the features of a galaxy that appears to have undergone recent gas accretion?
