2014-2016 Observations in Support of Astrophysics at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics

Lead Research Organisation: University of Manchester
Department Name: Physics and Astronomy


The wide range of observational astrophysics is carried out at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics includes cosmology, galaxies, star formation and exoplanets, and the late stages of stellar evolution. This proposal will provide support for travel to use various telescopes around the world operating at a wide range of wavelengths from the radio through the submillimetre to infrared and optical to study a very wide range of astronomical objects and phenomena in support of this research.
Description The observations which this grant has supported have provide important insights into the formation of stars in our Galaxy and the nature of planets around other stars.
Exploitation Route This research can be used to inspire school children in to study STEM subjects.
