Research Integrity Resources Initiative

February 13, 2018

The Research Integrity Resources Initiative was created to provide FAS researchers with proactive tools to support excellence in the stewardship of strong research data. Some of these resources are provided to make the FAS community aware of offices, policies, training, and programs that are currently available across Harvard University.

In addition, this initiative also provides resources to manage conflict, communication, and/or behavioral concerns to avoid misunderstandings that may lead to allegations of research misconduct and to...

Farthest stars in Milky Way might be ripped from another galaxy

January 11, 2017

Harvard Graduate student Marion Dierickx recent paper featured:

"The 11 farthest known stars in our galaxy are located about 300,000 light-years from Earth, well outside the Milky Way's spiral disk. New research by Harvard astronomers shows that half of those stars might have been ripped from another galaxy: the Sagittarius dwarf. Moreover, they are members of a lengthy stream of stars extending one million light-years across space, or 10 times the width of our galaxy."

Detection of Methanol Shows Comets are Forming in Distant Solar System

June 15, 2016

Astronomers announced today that they have found the organic molecule methyl alcohol, or methanol, in the TW Hydrae protoplanetary disk. This is the first such detection of this chemical compound in a young planet-forming disk. Because methanol forms on the icy coatings of small dust grains, this discovery provides a window into the region where comets likely are forming.
