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.
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.
