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

J. Ward, D. Kruijssen (ZAH/ARI); 23.04.2018


Prof. Dr. Björn Malte Schäfer mit Lehrpreis der Fakultät für Physik und Astronomie ausgezeichnet. (25.04.2018)

Heute wurde der erste umfangreiche Gaia-Sternkatalog veröffentlicht. Damit begann eine neue Ära in der Erforschung der Milchstraße. (25.04.2018)

Based on previously published data from the Gaia Mission, researchers at Heidelberg University have derived the conditions under which stars form. The analysis points to a new view of star formation. (24.04.2018)

For the last 15 years the H.E.S.S. telescopes have surveyed the Milky Way in gamma-ray light. The H.E.S.S. collaboration has now published its largest set of science results in an "anniversery issue" of A&A (09.04.18)
