Research & Facilities

Welcome to the Astrophysics & Space Research Group at the University of Birmingham. The group's research interests span a wide swathe of astronomy and fundamental physics, including the study of galaxies and larger cosmological structures, of black holes and neutron stars, using both electromagnetic and gravitational radiation, and of stars and the planets which appear to orbit many of them. We also study gravity itself, and other ultra-weak forces, using sensitive experiments in the laboratory and in space.
