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

Projekt: Forskning



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.
