Using supercomputer simulations, this astronomer was able to understand how magnetic fields interact with stellar winds in star forming clouds
New simulations of distant dwarf galaxies show they can have their gas stolen by a larger galaxy, similar to the two Magellanic Clouds encompassing the Milky Way
Undergraduate students of the University of Arizona searched 101 clouds of gas to find those that may be in the first phases of forming massive stars
Researchers have developed computer simulations that show the evolution of stars from massive clouds of gas
This discovery comes from observations of the developing star TMC1A, located in the constellation Taurus
Stars are a fundamental part to our universe, but what purpose do they serve?
50 galaxies within our cosmic backyard have been studied extensively in visible and ultraviolet images
This oxygen detection provides strong evidence that star formation occurred just 250 million years after the Big Bang
When observing galaxies very similar to the Milky Way, researchers have deduced that they are slowly expanding in size
Computer simulations reveal why the size of the central cavity differs to the age of the inner stars unexpectedly
The theory can explain why stars are created in the most extreme cosmic environments
Analysing methanol molecules using radio astronomy can reveal how magnetic fields affect the formation of massive stars
By using the stratospheric observatory SOFIA, researchers hope to see the birth of massive stars outside our Milky Way
A recent study has revealed a link between the mass of a galaxy’s supermassive black hole and its stellar history
This amazing spectacle helps astronomers understand how stellar youngsters affect their gaseous and dusty environments
By studying distant galaxies, astronomers could reveal the large amounts of atomic hydrogen and how it affects star formation
The research has thrown a wrench into what we know about how galaxies form
By observing galaxies that formed 3 billion years after the Big Bang, astronomers have introduced a new evolution story for galaxies.
The detection of these complex molecules have shown huge hidden reservoirs of turbulent gas in distant structures
With all that gas in the galactic nucleus, shouldn’t stars be made faster?
