Is the Milky Way special? Or, as Dr. Marla Geha would like to know, are the satellite galaxies around the Milky Way special? Learn more at Dr. Geha’s #AAS238 plenary talk!
A newly discovered dwarf galaxy near the Local Group appears to be young and lonely and it shut off star formation. What could be responsible for the quenching if there are no nearby bright galaxies?
How does the structure of the smallest galaxies vary with different environments? Today’s authors use the ELVES survey to investigate!
Astronomers use machine learning to reconstruct past mergers that the Milky Way experienced.
Today’s #UndergradResearch post by Tehreem Hai looks at a special type of galaxy merger — a merger of dwarf galaxies — and the star clusters within them!
The Milky Way’s disc is made up of two components — but where did they come from?
