Applying color-magnitude diagrams to distant, semi-resolved galaxies may break new ground in understanding stellar populations on a massive scale.
A novel approach to estimate their mass may help reveal the relationship between supermassive black holes and the galaxies they inhabit.
Today’s post presents SIMBA, a cosmological simulation that focuses on understanding the growth and evolution of black holes and their host galaxy.
Star-forming galaxies form stars at different rates. Could this be the model that reveals the underlying physics?
Today’s post looks at the investigation of a very small galaxy hosting a black hole that’s 15% of its total mass. This paper investigates whether this was once a much bigger galaxy, but has been robbed of its stars by a close call with another nearby galaxy.
Today’s paper makes predictions for the yet-to-be-observed dwarf galaxy population around Andromeda’s satellite galaxy, M33. It provides scientific justification for a future mission with WFIRST.
