Today’s paper uses simulations to understand how the Milky Way’s stellar halo formed, and also asks: what determines the evolutionary pathway taken by a galaxy over cosmic time?
Three Astrobiters review Dr. Moiya McTier’s new book, The Milky Way, published today!
Dust mapping with Gaia has changed our perspective on the sun’s neighborhood, but how do revelations about the nearby structure of dust fit in with our understanding of the Milky Way’s large scale skeletal structure?
We sit down with Professor Gail Zasowski, plenary speaker at #AAS240, to hear about new techniques to understand the Milky Way Galaxy from the inside!
We sit down with Professor David Weinberg, one of the designers of SDSS, to talk about his plenary at #AAS240, “Asteroids to Reionization: The Broad Reach of Survey Astronomy”, and much more!
In today’s post, we interview Dr. Ekta Patel, a Miller postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley, about her astronomy journey.
