    Astronomers Release Most Complete Ultraviolet-Light Survey of Nearby Galaxies

    NASA and ESA have recently announced the release of the most comprehensive ultra-violet light survey of nearby galaxies. The data have been acquired with the Hubble space Telescope which provides superb spatial resolution at this spectral range. An international team formed by more than 50 astronomers across 4 continents has carefully analysed the data.

    A cold dawn for the first stars

    This morning, as I was walking from Tekniska Högskolan metro station to AlbaNova through the Siberian cold which has hit Stockholm, I was thinking about even colder temperatures than the -15 C that I felt on my skin. Did you know that the temperature of Universe was only 3 Kelvin (-270 C) when the first … Continue reading A cold dawn for the first stars
