Unveiling the hidden stars: ALMA Shines a Light on Dust Attenuation

zwartość gwiazdowo-pyłowa w funkcji wieku Wszechświata. Rozkład osiąga szczyt w okolicach kosmicznego południa.
Interstellar dust is a key component in galaxies. It favors star formation and drives the chemistry and physics of the interstellar medium. However, it hides the majority of stars in a way that it is impossible to observe them. Astrophysicists use dust attenuation laws that would uncover these hidden stars by reverse-engineering the light from galaxies to quantify how many stars are there. ----
