ALMA osserva galassie primordiali in formazione

L'Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) è stato utilizzato per rivelare le nubi più distanti di gas che stanno formando stelle nelle galassie distanti. Queste osservazioni permettono agli astronomi di iniziare a vedere come si sono formate le prime galassie e come esse hanno, per così dire, "ripulito" la cosiddetta "nebbia cosmica" durante l'epoca della reionizzazione.…

Galassie nane satelliti: chi le ha viste?

La presenza di una specie di ondulazione nella periferia della Via Lattea (post) ha portato l’astrofisica Sukanya Chakrabarti del Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) a rivelare una galassia nana, rimasta nascosta sotto il proprio "velo" di materia scura. Tale scoperta sta permettendo alla ricercatrice di affinare una tecnica per individuare altre galassie nane e comprendere…
