Welcome to our website!
Here we present exciting new results and explanations about an ambitious
astronomical research programme, based around a large programme for the new
AAOmega instrument at
the Anglo Australian Telescope. We
"Measure the velocities, temperatures and elemental abundances of all stellar
populations that make up the Magellanic Cloud System, to reconstruct the
dynamical, star formation and chemical enrichment history of the Small and
Large Magellanic Clouds."
The programme is a joint effort by a large international
consortium of astronomers.
Find out about the stars we study and the galaxies they live in. Be amazed by
the new discoveries as the Anglo Australian Telescope paves the way for the
Professional astronomers may be particularly interested in the 100,000 spectra
we plan to take, and the results of our analyses. Links are provided which
direct them to the associated publications.
After the Large Magellanic Cloud, AAOmegallan has now also taken its first
spectra in the Small Magellanic Cloud
