The formation of the moon brought water to the earth

Credit: CC0 Public Domain The Earth is unique in our solar system: it is the only Earth planet with a large amount of water and a relatively large moon that stabilizes the Earth's axis. Both were essential for the development of life on earth. Planetologists at the University of Münster have now been able to prove for the first time …

Suppressed Star Formation in the Early Universe

A galaxy cluster map showing the density of galaxy members in the SPT-CLJ0421 massive cluster. Astronomers studying five such clusters in the epoch about 4.5 billion years after the Big Bang conclude that their star formation is extinguished. Symbols show the positions of the individual galaxies and the cross marks the position of the SPT detection. Picture credits: Strazzullo et …

Fast neutrino vibrations could be the key to the formation of supernovae

Neutrinos could be the driving force behind supernova explosions, as a new theoretical study by the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research notes. The study, which is making fundamental progress in the modeling of neutrinos in stars, suggests the idea that "fast neutrino oscillations" could be the key to why some stars explode at the end of their lives and form …

Astronomers take a first look at the huge star formation region of the Milky Way

This image of a radio telescope shows a huge star-forming region of the outer Milky Way galaxy. The ovals mark the major subdivisions of the region's molecular cloud, including the smaller 1a, which is very efficient in generating stars.
