Investigating the Evolution of Star Formation with Millimetre Wave Astronomy – Dr Reinhard Genzel, Dr Linda Jean Tacconi, Dr Karl-Friedrich Schuster

Apr 18, 2019 | physical sciences

Astronomers have much to learn from the giant clouds of gas and dust that occupy the vast spaces between stars. These conglomerates of dense, cool interstellar matter provide the food needed for star formation in galaxies. Over the past decade, Dr Reinhard Genzel and Dr Linda Tacconi at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, and Dr Karl-Friedrich Schuster at the Institute for Millimetre Radio Astronomy have used the Northern Extended Millimetre Array (NOEMA) near Grenoble, France and the 30-metre single dish telescope near Granada, Spain to observe characteristic radio signals from interstellar gas and dust in galaxies.
