Monday, June 10, 2013

Professor Daniela Calzetti was recently awarded a Treasury Program on the Hubble Space Telescope for 154 orbits, to use the powerful WFC3 Camera on board the HST to image nearby galaxies from the ultraviolet to the red. The program is called LEGUS: Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey, and will be executed on the HST starting in the Fall of 2013. In addition to the 154 primary orbits, Professor Calzetti was also awarded 154 parallel orbits, that will increase the legacy value of the survey.
