Mapping The Dark Matter With Early Type Galaxies

Grant number: LP130100286 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017

Completed

Abstract

Unidentified dark matter outweighs luminous matter (stars, gas, and galaxies) by several times and is detected by its gravitational effects in the Universe. The Six Degree Field Galaxy Survey is now complete and this project will prepare a larger survey, which will put the team clearly in the lead in understanding the distribution of dark matter.
