Welcome to ZAH


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)

Each year the Ernst Patzer Foundation is awarding three of the best refereed publications by PhD students and young postdocs at MPIA and ZAH. In 2018, Michael Hanke (ZAH/ARI) and Dr. Mattia Sormani (ZAH/ITA) are among the awardees. (30.11.2018)

Funding has been continued for CRC 881 "The Milky Way System” with approx. 9.4 million euros reaching its third and final funding period from 2019-2022. (26.11.2018)
