Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg

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


Apl. Prof. Dr. Stefan Wagner (LSW) appointed as new director of the H.E.S.S. Experiment and as Spokesperson of the H.E.S.S. collaboration. (2019/11/19)

A researchers team with Andreas Koch (ZAH/ARI) completed the largest survey to date of the ultrafaint outskirts of nearby galaxies. These appear to correlate with brightness and type of a galaxy undermining their common formation scenario. (2019/10/22)

Dr. Anna Pasquali has received the teaching prize of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. (2019/10/18)

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)

German-British research team simulates basic conditions for the formation of magnetic stars. (2019/10/10)

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)
