Welcome to ZAH


Heidelberg astronomers find first signs that Brown Dwarfs can also form like a planet in a protoplanetary disk. (10.04.2019)

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)

Heidelberg researchers used simulations to investigate how the formation conditions of open star clusters affect their long-term evolution. The simulations indicate that they exist 100 times longer than previously assumed. (14.01.2019)
