The Hubble area Telescope has facilitated significant contributions to a variety of issues in astronomy:

  • The research of within reach planets
  • The procedures of megastar and planet formation
  • The stellar and interstellar parts of galaxies
  • The discovery that almost all, if now not all, galactic nuclei harbor an important black gap that profoundly impacts their evolution
  • The realisation that the universe as an entire is present process acceleration because of a but unknown kind of "dark energy".

This quantity deals a huge viewpoint of the developments made attainable by way of the HST over its virtually twenty years of operation and emphasises their impression on eu astronomical learn. those complaints of 41st symposium within the ESLAB sequence of the ecu house employer gather the oral and poster papers that have been awarded and mentioned through the assembly.

Html. Chapter 3 Key Abundance Tracers in the UV: From the Lightest to the Heaviest Francesca Primas Abstract The uniqueness of the ultra-violet spectral region consists of giving access to atomic transitions of some of the very light and of the very heavy elements of the Periodic Table. The very light elements (here meant to be lithium, beryllium and boron) are not very abundant but they are a powerful diagnostic of the mixing mechanisms active in the outermost layers of stellar atmospheres, as well as a link to primordial epochs and primordial nucleosynthesis (lithium).
