With the powerful eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope, an international team of astronomers led by Håkon Dahle at UiO observed straight into the bright and hot heart of a galaxy 11 billion years old in no less than 12 multiple, gravitationally lensed images. The finding casts light onto a crucial era in our universe’s history: the epoch of reionization.
People typically sleep seven to eight hours in one stretch and stay awake for the rest of the day. Evolutionary scientists have assumed that this rhythm of sleep arose when our early ancestors went from being nocturnal to diurnal, but a new study of the Javan slow loris indicates that the human way of sleeping is much older.
The world’s great oceans are known to most people. Less well known is the seabed, and the fact that sediments are continually being deposited there. The recently updated map GlobSed shows 30 % more sediments on the seabed than previously assumed. A PhD Fellow at UiO has led the update.
