Galaxies grow large by eating their smaller neighbours, finds an international research team, including York University. Exactly how massive galaxies attain their size is poorly understood, not least because they swell over billions of years. But now through a combination of observation and modelling, researchers, including the Faculty of Science’s Leo Alcorn, a York Science Fellow, have found a clue.
TORONTO, Nov. 24 – An up-and-coming York University astrophysics researcher will receive an award today in Ottawa for furthering the understanding of the universe, including the discovery of outer-lying groupings of galaxies similar to ours and the reason why they spin. A PhD student in physics and astronomy at York University George Conidis has identified […]
