Astronomie: Beobachtung gibt Forschenden Rätsel auf

Ein internationales Team von Astrophysikerinnen und -physikern hat bei der Analyse bestimmter Sternhaufen eine rätselhafte Entdeckung gemacht. An der Studie war die Universität Bonn maßgeblich beteiligt. Der Befund fordere die Newtonschen Gravitationsgesetze heraus, schreiben die Forschenden in ihrer Publikation. Stattdessen decken sich die Beobachtungen mit den Voraussagen einer alternativen Gravitations-Theorie. Diese ist allerdings in Fachkreisen umstritten. Die Ergebnisse sind nun in den Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society erschienen.

Das Vorhaben “SuperWave” ist in der Quantenoptik angesiedelt.
