Understanding the physics of a certain emission line will allow astronomers to study galaxies that existed a long time ago far, far away.
The spiral arms of galaxies are among the most recognizable galactic features, yet we still know little about their precise formation mechanism. Today’s paper leverages new data from the Gaia mission to test some of the leading theories.
An intriguing subset of galaxies exhibit counter-rotating components, that go against the flow of the majority of the stars. Today’s paper examines two such galaxies and reaches a different conclusion about each of them.
A series of papers between two research groups, investigating the nature of an unusual distant galaxy.
Hint: It’s not mitochondria.
A team was able to use deep learning algorithms to analyze a massive galaxy survey. Can the same algorithm be used on an entirely new survey?
