4MOST - massive spectroscopic surveys of the Milky Way and the Universe

Project: Research

Research areas and keywords

UKÄ subject classification

  • Natural Sciences
  • Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology

Keywords

  • Milky Way, large scale spectroscopic surveys, detailed abundance analysis

Description

The 4MOST consortium is building a massively multiplex spectrograph with which we will observe tens of millions of stars in the Milky Way to obtain their stellar properties, including elemental abundances, temperatures, stellar ages and orbits within the Galaxy. With such such data we will be able to trace the formation history of our home galaxy.
