Veni grant for astronomer Hacar
Astronomer Alvaro Hacar received a Veni grant for his ORION-4D research on the birth of stars.
This research focuses on answering the question if light stars are born in the same way as heavy stars in the constellation Orion. Hacar wants to combine new radio observations of the Orion cloud with innovative measuring techniques. Current theories about the birth of light and heavy stars can be tested with these new results. Hacar aims at unravelling how most of the stars in our Milky Way are born.
