Observations of Giant Molecular Clouds (GMCs) yield large scatters in star formation efficiencies. Simulations in this work show that much of this scatter may stem from the fact we observe GMCs at different evolutionary stages driven by stellar feedback.
Today’s paper analyzes the inflow and outflow rates of gas in the Milky Way, allowing us to better understand how the galaxy interacts with its surroundings.
Enhanced resolution in cosmological simulations reveals new structure in the circumgalactic medium.
Professor Elisabeth Mills studies one of the most mysterious regions of the Milky Way: the galactic center. Learn about the stars, gas, and a black hole that make this such an exciting area of research ahead of her talk at #AAS234.
Professor Joshua Winn has played a major role in our current understanding of exoplanets, serving as part of both the Kepler and TESS missions. Discover what we know about exoplanets from Kepler and what we may learn from TESS ahead of his plenary talk at #AAS234.
