Carina nebula

Great to see the new JWST image of the Carina nebula on the front page of the NYTimes. A stellar nursery in exquisite detail, I gasped at the live reveal! So cool.

Byrne on JWST

Our WUSTL colleague Paul Byrne explains why we should all be excited about new data from the James Webb Space Telescope. A new dawn for planetary science and astronomy!

Welcome Tansu!

We’re all very excited to announce that Tansu Daylan will be joining us at Wash U in the fall of 2023. Tansu’s expertise in exoplanets, dark matter, and data analysis techniques will complement our existing strengths in cosmochemistry, planetary science, and astrophysics. Great things ahead for space sciences at Wash U!
