Big data for the universe
Moscow, Russia (SPX) Feb 10, 2017
Astronomers at Lomonosov Moscow State University in cooperation with their French colleagues and with the help of citizen scientists have released "The Reference Catalog of galaxy SEDs" (RCSED), which contains value-added information about 800,000 galaxies. The catalog is accessible on the web and its description has been published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement (impact factor - 11.257). Two co-authors of the research paper are undergraduate students at the Faculty of Physics, Lomonosov M ... read more
