What makes a starburst galaxy? Do they have more gas or more efficient star-formation?
What processes will disrupt a cloud of gas passing through the circumgalactic medium?
Does our galaxy look like an Advil, a NyQuil, or just a simple sphere? The simulations studied in today’s paper may have the answer.
New findings suggest that they have a lot of gas – but then why are they not forming stars?
Today’s paper takes a closer look at the after-effects of the Milky Way’s last major collision with another galaxy.
Using simulations of a Milky Way-sized elliptical galaxy, astronomers study how stellar substructures can tell us about past merger events.
