Cosmic Collisions: The Hubble Atlas of Merging Galaxies

Like majestic ships within the grandest evening, galaxies can slip ever nearer till their mutual gravitational interplay starts to mould them into elaborate figures which are eventually, and irreversibly, woven jointly. it's a huge cosmic dance, choreographed via gravity.

Cosmic Collisions incorporates a hundred new, many so far unpublished, photographs of colliding galaxies from the NASA/ESA Hubble house Telescope.

It is thought that many present-day galaxies, together with the Milky method, have been assembled from this type of coalescence of smaller galaxies, taking place over billions of years. prompted through the giant and violent interplay among the galaxies, stars shape from huge clouds of fuel in firework bursts, developing great blue big name clusters. the significance of those cosmic encounters reaches some distance past the lovely Hubble pictures. they could, actually, be one of the most vital procedures that form the universe we inhabit today.

New PDF release: Asteroseismology of Stellar Populations in the Milky Way

The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in hundreds of thousands of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the line for targeted experiences of stellar populations within the Galaxy. The on hand regular seismic constraints permit principally model-independent decision of stellar radii and lots more and plenty, and will be used to figure out the location and age of millions of stars in several areas of the Milky approach, and of giants belonging to open clusters.
