Feedback is indispensable in galaxy formation. However, lacking resolutions, cosmological simulations often use ad hoc feedback parameters. Conversely, small-box simulations, while they better resolve the feedback, cannot capture gas evolution beyond the simulation domain. We aim to bridge the gap by implementing small-box results of supernovae-driven outflows into dark matter halo-scale simulations

The properties of Alfvénic solar wind turbulence have been studied for decades in the near-Earth environment.

Various broad emission lines were detected, as well as the underlying continuum and iron forests over the rest-frame wavelength 970–2930 Å.

When magnetic reconnection occurs at the null point, the fan-spine configuration brightens in the (extreme-)ultraviolet channels.

The line width, in particular, reflects the rotation velocity of the galaxy, which, in combination with a size scale, can be used to constrain the dynamical mass of the system.

Hanasoge Solar flares are explosions in the solar atmosphere that release intense bursts of short-wavelength radiation and are capable of producing severe space-weather. Flares release free energy built up in coronal fields, which are rooted in active regions (ARs) on the photosphere, via magnetic reconnection.

Stardust grains that originated in ancient stars and supernovae are recovered from meteorites and carry the detailed composition of their astronomical sites of origin. We present evidence that the majority of large ( μ m-sized) meteoritic silicon carbide (SiC) grains formed in C-rich asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars that were more metal-rich than the Sun. In the framework of the slow neutron captures

The volatile composition of a planet is determined by the inventory of gas and ice in the parent disk. The volatile chemistry in the disk is expected to evolve over time, though this evolution is poorly constrained observationally. We present Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array observations of C 18 O, C 2 H, and the isotopologues H 13 CN, HC 15 N, and DCN toward five Class 0/I disk candidates

Direct-imaging techniques of exoplanets have made significant progress recently and will eventually enable monitoring of photometric and spectroscopic signals of Earth-like habitable planets. The presence of clouds, however, would remain as one of the most uncertain components in deciphering such direct-imaged signals of planets. We attempt to examine how the planetary obliquity produces different

The observational detection of a localized reduction in the small planet occurrence rate, sometimes termed a “gap,” is an exciting discovery because of the implications for planet evolutionary history. This gap appears to define a transition region in which sub-Neptune planets are believed to have lost their H/He envelopes, potentially by photoevaporation or core powered mass loss, and have thus been

The abundance of methyl formate (MF, HCOOCH 3 ) in star-forming regions of the interstellar medium (ISM) suggests the presence of protonated MF (H + MF). However, no spectroscopic data exist for isolated H + MF. Here, we address the vibrational properties of H + MF and its H + MF-L n ≤2 clusters (L = Ar/N 2 ) by infrared photodissociation (IRPD) spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations
