Galaxies & Quasars

The research section "Galaxies and Quasars" is devoted to study the nature of the greatest individual objects in the Universe: Galaxies, quasars, and galaxy clusters. One of the fundamental quests in modern astrophysics is to understand the formation of these objects in the early Universe, and their subsequent evolution towards the diversity we observe in the local universe. For this we have to disentangle the complex interplay between stars, interstellar gas, super-massive black holes at the center of galaxies, and the dark matter into which the visible galaxies are embedded.
