Ever wondered what role turbulence and other aspects of fluid dynamics play in the formation of stars in galaxies? Find out at Dr. Burkhart’s #AAS238 Annie Jump Cannon Prize lecture on Tuesday, 8th June!
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover Alexander Johnson’s research on detecting HII regions in the Milky Way’s most distant spiral arm.
Today’s paper examines if a well-known correlation between gas mass and star formation rate holds on the scale of a single molecular cloud.
When HII regions expand, they look like an inflating balloon. But what happens after that balloon pops?
The Milky Way’s disc is made up of two components — but where did they come from?
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Alexandra Kwon modeled the evolution of chemical abundance in dwarf galaxies.
