Welcome to the Center for Astronomy of Heidelberg University (ZAH)


International research team with Ralf Klessen studies the Milky Way as a “galactic ecosystem”. The project is being funded with approximately 12.7 million euros. (2019/10/11)

A new Emmy Noether Research Group at ZAH has started working on resolving the baryon cycle in nearby galaxies and is led by Dr Kathryn Kreckel. The German Research Foundation (DFG) has allocated 1.7 mill. euros over six years. (2019/10/01)

The "Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)" detected an exoplanet orbiting the star GJ 357. Analysis of measurements, to which the CARMENES spectrograph has contributed, revealed one further planet inside the habitable zone. (2019/08/01)
