Zentrum für Astronomie

Zentrum für Astronomie der Universität Heidelberg

The Zentrum für Astronomie der Universität Heidelberg (ZAH) is the largest university astronomy group within Germany. The ZAH was established in 2005 by joining the former state institutes Astronomisches Rechen-Institut (ARI) and Landessternwarte Königstuhl (LSW) with the Institut für Theoretische Astrophysik (ITA) of Heidelberg University.

First Successful Tests of New Planet Hunter “CARMENES”

CARMENES is an outstanding novel astronomical instrument which has been designed to look for Earth-like planets. It was buildt by an international consortium lead by the Landessternwarte. The instrument recently has successfully passed first “on-sky” tests and is almost ready for discoveries. (December 17, 2015).

Shining Message about the End of the Dark Ages

An international team, including researchers from the Centre for Astronomy of Heidelberg University (ZAH), has discovered three “cosmic Methusalems” from the earliest years of the universe. These unusual stars are about 13 billion years old. Experts assign them to the first generation of stars after the “dark ages”. (28.05.2015)

Asteroid Research Benefits From Gaia Satellite Mission

Astronomical research on asteroids is also benefiting from the Gaia mission of the European Space Agency (ESA). Even though the astrometry satellite’s main purpose is to precisely measure nearly one billion stars in the Milky Way, it has already tracked down a multitude of minor planets in our solar system.
