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?
Nearby spiral galaxies aren’t metalheads, but they might have lots of metals in their arms.
We report on Days 0 and 1 of the summer AAS meeting in Denver, CO. Highlights include a look at past, present, and future exoplanet research, a discussion of the state of diversity and inclusion efforts in astronomy, and a summary of where heavy elements come from.
