Brown Dwarfs/ Howell and Hoard

Brown Dwarfs/ Howell and Hoard

Detecting Brown Dwarfs in Interacting Cataclysmic Binaries: Using Spitzer Space Telescope infrared images to determine whether the companion of the remnant star EE Eri (a white dwarf) is in fact a very low-mass object (sometimes called 'failed star') known as a brown dwarf.

Year(s) participated: 2007


GLAST/Lacy

GLAST/Lacy

AGN Spectral Energy Distributions of GLAST Telescope Network Program Objects: Combining data from the Gamma-Ray Large Area Telescope (GLAST) and infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope and ground based optical measurements from amateur astronomers to determine the emission mechanisms from around a supermassive black hole in a nearby galaxy.

Year(s) participated: 2007


High-z/Rudnick and Finn and Desai

High-z/Rudnick and Finn and Desai

Star Formation in High Redshift Clusters with Spitzer: Combining Spitzer Space Telescope imaging with other ground and space based measurements to trace the evolution of star formation in galaxy clusters of differing masses.

Year(s) participated: 2007


IC 2118/Rebull

IC 2118/Rebull

Young Stars in IC 2118: Using Spitzer Space Telescope infrared images to find newly forming stars in the Witch Head nebula (IC2118) and using optical data to determine their masses and ages and to see their relationship to the interstellar medium and to other similar star forming regions.

Year(s) participated: 2007
