How NASA’s Roman Telescope Will Measure Ages of Stars

Astronomers are using NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope to study the ages of stars in our Milky Way galaxy by measuring their rotation periods. By analyzing changes in brightness caused by starspots, researchers can estimate a star’s age based on its mass and rotation rate. This innovative approach, supported by artificial intelligence, promises new insights into the formation and evolution of our galaxy.
