The material expelled by the star during its late evolutionary stage provides the building blocks for future planetary and star forming systems. The rate at which the material is expelled is key to understand the further evolution of the star to its next stage, a supernova.

Lifting the veil on the black hole at the heart of our Galaxy
With a worldwide array of telescopes that includes the IRAM 30-meter telescope, astronomers have found that the emission from the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* at the center of our Galaxy comes from a smaller region than previously thought. This may indicate that a radio jet from Sagittarius A* is pointed almost toward us...
