PATT Travel for Oxford University

Lead Research Organisation: University of Oxford
Department Name: Oxford Physics

Abstract

This application seeks funds to cover the cost of travel and subsistence for astronomers from Oxford University to work at and acquire data from telescopes around the world in order to make observations of stars, galaxies and quasars and futher explore the Universe.

Description The grant has enabled Oxford staff members to travel to telescopes around the World, in order to make discoveries about the Universe through observations of stars, galaxies, supernovae and planets. The findings have been published in peer-reviewed journals.
Exploitation Route Scientists make use of the findings by devising new theories of the universe that match the observations, and by devsing new observations to further test those theories. The observations are also used in public talks and events. The results are also used to inform the design of future ground-based and space-based telescopes.

Description The findings have been published in scientific journals. They have also been used for education purposes and for public outreach events. These activities lead to an increased awareness of astronomy in the general public and potential increase in young people taking up physics at school and university level.
