Welcome to ZAH

The Zentrum für Astronomie der Universität Heidelberg (ZAH) joins the institutes Astronomisches Rechen-Institut (ARI), Landessternwarte Königstuhl (LSW) and Institut für Theoretische Astrophysik (ITA). Its spectrum of research and teaching activities ranges from planet formation and galaxy evolution to cosmology and state of the art computer physics in parallel with the development and assembly of instrumentation for telescopes and participation in satellite projects.

ZAH Research Highlights

Quirrenbach/Wagner (LSW); 09.04.18


Am 25. April 2018 wird der erste umfangreiche Gaia-Sternkatalog veröffentlicht. Heidelberger Wissenschaftler sind maßgeblich an der Vorbereitung der Mission und der Datenauswertung beteiligt. (20.04.201)

Das Astronomische Rechen-Institut hat die Astronomischen Grundlagen für den Kalender 2020 veröffentlicht. Diese sind eine Grundlage für die Herstellung von Kalendern durch entsprechende Verlage. (29.03.18)

The Amerikan Physical Society (APS) honors Prof. Dr. Matthias Bartelmann as Outstanding Referee for quality, number and timeliness of his reports. (23.02.2018)

Alfred Wegener (1880 -1930) is known for his theory of continental drift. He first studied astronomy and received his PhD in 1905 at ARI in Berlin. In his new book, Roland and Ute Wielen describe how Wegener prepared his dissertation. (22.02.2018)
