Some galaxies are easy to find—others, like dusty galaxies with extreme star formation, are a bit harder to track down. Come to Professor Caitlin Casey’s #AAS233 talk to learn how we can find these galaxies in the “obscured early universe”!
Observations from the MaNGA survey help to answer the question: What are the features of a galaxy that appears to have undergone recent gas accretion?
We can learn a lot about the history of the universe from the stars we see in the night sky today. In today’s astrobite, we look at the history that certain carbon-enhanced, metal-poor stars might be trying to tell.
A series of papers between two research groups, investigating the nature of an unusual distant galaxy.
Taurus-Auriga is the nearest large star-forming region, but its stellar membership roster is still incomplete. In today’s bite we’ll see if there are older members among the newbies.
Observations of galaxies in the early universe reveal too much star formation to account for the number of stars around today. What gives? Today’s ‘bite investigates.
