The SkyMapper Southern Survey

Le 22 mai 2017
De 14h00 à 15h30

Christian Wolf


The SkyMapper Southern Survey is now approaching its first large data release, covering nearly all of the Southern hemisphere in six optical bands. This talk will cover all aspects of the project, from its history and operations to the science currently pursued. This includes searching for metal-poor stars in the Milky Way and bright quasars at high redshift as well as mapping temporal variations of star formation in nearby galaxies. SkyMapper also operates a transient survey to supply the local anchoring for SN Ia cosmology, and engages in optical follow-up of fast radio bursts and neutron star mergers. Public awareness for SkyMapper benefits from our Hunt for Planet Nine as broadcast by BBC Stargazing Live.
