Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg

Welcome to the Center for Astronomy of Heidelberg University

The 2023 MERAC Prize for the Best Early Career Researcher is awarded to Dylan Nelson (ZAH/ITA) for his leading role in computational astrophysics. (2023/04/05)

The 2023 MERAC Prize for the Best Early Career Researcher is awarded to Dominika Wylezalek (ZAH/ARI) for her studies of supermassive black holes. (2023/04/05)

The new “Ute and Roland Wielen Foundation Fund” shall support science, research and teaching at Heidelberg University, primarily at ARI and ITA. (2023/03/16)

Heading Heidelberg University in future will be molecular biologist Prof. Dr Frauke Melchior. She will take up her new office as of 1 October this year. (2023/03/09)

Data obtained within five years with the eponymous spectrograph at Calar-Alto Observatory have already led to the discovery of 59 partly habitable new exoplanets. (2023/02/22)

Using Webb's image clarity at infrared wavelengths, scientists discover missing pieces of the star formation puzzle. Their findings are now published in a collection of research papers, also with first authors from ZAH. (2023/02/16)
