Stjernedannelse påvirkes af lokale forhold i rummet

15 September 2017

Tre forskere fra Astrofysik og Planetforskning har gennemført omfattende computersimuleringer af stjerners dannelse, og konklusionen er, at den nuværende ’grundmodel’ et godt stykke ad vejen kun beskriver...

Helt uventet rotation i stendød galakse

20 June 2017

Et internationalt forskerhold under ledelse af eksperter fra Niels Bohr Institutet ved Københavns Universitet har som de første nogen sinde vist, at stjernerne i en stendød elliptisk galakse også kan bevæge sig i regelmæssige baner.

Unexpected rotation in a stone-dead galaxy

20 June 2017

A joint European-US study led by experts from Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, reveals a rotating stellar disk à la the Milky Way in a stone-dead galaxy 10 billion light-years from Earth.

En af livets "LEGO-klodser" fundet med ALMA ved unge stjerner af samme type som vores Sol

06 June 2017

Astronomer fra blandt andet Niels Bohr Institutet har brugt ALMA til at observere stjerner af Solens type på et meget tidligt tidspunkt i deres dannelsesproces, og omkring en af dem er der fundet spor af en af livets byggesten.

NBIA Assistant Professor Jacob Bourjaily has been awarded a prestigious Young Investigator Grant from the Villum Foundation

23 January 2017



Jacob Bourjaily's research involves the reformulation of quantum field theory in order to make the simplicity of its predictions more manifest. Given any quantum theory, the predicted probabilities for the possible outcomes of any experiment are encoded in a function called the scattering amplitude. These predictions are notoriously hard to compute, and yet surprisingly simple in form. Making this simplicity manifest in the way these predictions are computed dramatically improves the our ability...

Newly formed stars shoot out powerful whirlwinds

14 December 2016

Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have used the ALMA telescopes to observe the early stages in the formation of a new solar system. For the first time they have seen how a powerful whirlwind shoot out from...

Mystery of ultra-diffuse faint galaxies solved

29 November 2016

Over the last year, researchers have observed some very faint, diffuse galaxies. The galaxies are as faint as dwarf galaxies, but are distributed over an area just as large as the Milky Way.

Chaos in cosmos: Stars with three planet-forming discs of gas

11 October 2016

Chaos in cosmos: Stars with three planet-forming discs of gasResearchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have discovered a system consisting of two stars with three rotating planet-forming accretion discs around them. It is a binary star where each star has its own planet-forming...

First step in the Deep Space mission

21 September 2016

First step in the Deep Space missionDeep Space is a project that will use a new specially designed telescope to look far into space in order to observe radiation from the early universe. The equipment will be placed at Summit in the middle of the...

The long hunted sterile neutrino cannot be traced

08 August 2016

Some of the most abundant particles in the universe are the so-called ghost particles, neutrinos, which travel through virtually anything on their journey through the universe. Researchers have identified three types of...
