Data obtained within five years with the eponymous spectrograph at Calar-Alto Observatory have already led to the discovery of 59 partly habitable new exoplanets. (2023/02/22)

Using Webb's image clarity at infrared wavelengths, scientists discover missing pieces of the star formation puzzle. Their findings are now published in a collection of research papers, also with first authors from ZAH. (2023/02/16)
