Disorderly planetary system challenges the theories

The planets orbiting our own Sun do so in an orderly system. Rocky planets are on the inside, while the gas giants – including Jupiter – are on the outside, and all the trajectories follow virtually the same plane. This is how it most often commonly takes place, according to the astronomers’ theories for planet formation. However, a newly…

Outstanding honour to star scientist

Professor Jørgen Christensen-Dalsgaard has been a leading figure in international research into stellar physics for many years. He has now been awarded the Carlsberg Foundation’s Research Prize in natural sciences for his ground-breaking research.

NGC 6752 is the name of the globular cluster observed by the international team of researchers. It is found in the constellation Pavo (The Peacock) and is one of the brightest of its kind in the night sky. Globular clusters are one of the places where the oldest stars are found, and they are also interesting for scientists because they can contain several generations of stars.

Stellar models given a reprimand

An international team of researchers can now demonstrate that the computer models used until now to explain the life cycle of stars are unlikely to be correct. The key to this discovery is the substance sodium, which can be used to reveal the life story of a star.
