2014 Science Highlights
Spatially-resolved dust properties of the GRB 980425 host galaxy
Michalowski et al. (2014) present spatially resolved maps of dust emission of the host galaxy of the closest known GRB 980425 at z = 0.0085 using our new high-resolution observations from Herschel, Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX), Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) and Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA). Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been proposed as a tool for studying star formation in the Universe, so it is crucial to investigate whether their host galaxies and immediate environments are in any way special compared with other star-forming galaxies. - The R-band image above is overlaid with ATCA radio continuum contours at two frequencies (1.324 and 2.348 GHz); fits files are provided on-line thanks to Michalowski et al. (2014).
