In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover Tommy Wen Chin’s research investigating the size of the neutral regions during the epoch of reionization.
With a new generation of space and ground based telescopes on the horizon, we will soon have the tools to efficiently begin looking for life’s signatures in exoplanet atmospheres. Where should we look first to maximize our chances?
We know that a cluster can be a dangerous place for a young star trying to form some new planets. Radiation and winds from massive stars can evaporate the planetary disc, and the gravitational pull from fly-bys of other stars can disrupt the disc and drag the planet-forming material away.
An alternate model of cosmology behaves like modified gravity.
Did local Ultra-Faint Dwarf Galaxies get quenched by the Milky Way or by Reionisation? Today’s authors use cosmological simulations to find out!
The fractal dimension as a new way to explore the mysterious link between turbulence and star formation.
