A dwarf irregular galaxy in the Lynx-Cancer void is cannibalizing its neighbors.
Just when you think you’ve understood star formation and how galaxies form, someone pulls the rug out from under you…
After learning about galaxy formation, computers can imitate millions of hours of calculations in just a few minutes.
How do galaxies grow? Today’s featured paper investigates the role of mergers between galaxies in assembling the most massive nearby galaxies.
How do galaxy clusters form and evolve? Counting galaxies of different luminosities, masses, and colors can yield surprising insights.
Star formation and supernova explosions play an important role in galaxy formation and evolution, in a process known as feedback. Today’s astrobite discusses how modifying the amount of feedback from supernova explosions affects the properties of the disc of a Milky Way galaxy, and how it affects the hot, gaseous halo surrounding massive galaxies.
