Welcome to ZAH


TV broadcaster "3sat" has released an interesting TV-report on the Gaia mission. Stefan Jordan explains some highlight of the first science that has been performed with the Gaia Data Release 2, published on April 25, 2018. (25.2.2019)

Heidelberg researchers verify this phenomenon using Gaia data from the Hyades. (15.2.2019)

The first survey of protoplanetary disks using the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) revealed unknown structures which likely are the sites for planets to be formed. ZAH is one of the leading partners of the campaign. (12.12.2018)

CARMENES detects atmospheric loss of helium from exoplanet WASP-69b in the form of an extended comet-like tail. (6.12.2018)
