The surprising result of a search for radio AGN in nearby dwarf galaxies
New findings suggest that they have a lot of gas – but then why are they not forming stars?
Today’s paper looks at observations of 19 low mass galaxies which appear to contain no dark matter, potentially challenging our overall understanding of galaxy formation.
The era of petabyte and exabyte astronomical surveys is rapidly approaching. How will we store all this data and ensure its longevity for future decades of astronomers? Check out Dr. Alex Szalay’s plenary talk at #AAS233 to find out!
Hint: It’s not mitochondria.
A spectrum is worth a thousand pictures. But all-sky spectra? Well, I bet they are worth many many thousands of pictures — introducing SDSS-V.
