The Dark Web of Star Formation Title SlideCornell University, Department of Physics Colloquium - Salpeter Lecture

Abstract:  Stars form in the darkest regions of our Galaxy. Barnard’s deep, wide-field, photographs revealed web-like structures within these regions 100 years ago. But, somehow, it took a century--until roughly now-- for us to realize that the detailed structure of Barnard’s “dark webs” might hold astrophysical secrets....

Citizen scientists to rescue 150 years of cosmic images

March 24, 2017

‘Lost’ images from astronomy journals are being rediscovered through a citizen-science project that launched on 22 March — a potential boon to researchers looking for changes in the Universe. 'Astronomy Rewind' harnesses volunteers to digitize, map and make searchable observations featured in papers from journals of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) dating back to around 1850.
