Victor Silva Aguirre co-authors Nature paper

The age of a young to middle-aged star can be determined from how quickly or slowly it rotates, but the relationship breaks down for old stars; models now show that old stars are rotating much quicker than expected, perhaps because magnetic winds are weaker and therefore brake the rotation less effectively.

’Groggy’ elektroner ændrer på atomer

Forskere har gennem de sidste år lært, hvordan man kan observere på ultra-hurtige processer i atomer og molekyler. Feltet kan føre til ganske fundamentale gennembrud i vores forståelse af naturens virkemåder. Et internationalt forskerhold, med aarhusiansk deltagelse, har netop fundet frem til en vigtig brik i det arbejde.

Atlas of thoughts

Using a computer game, a research group at Aarhus University has found a way to gain deeper insight into the human thought process. The results have amazed the research director, who has discovered a kind of ‘atlas of thoughts’. And that is not all. The group can also reveal which gender is best at solving quantum problems.
