The formation and structure of distant galaxies (2008–2010)

Abstract:
We currently have ARC Discovery Project grant support to undertake the largest ever survey of galaxies in the distant universe to explore the nature of the 'dark energy' that pervades the universe and is causing it to expand at ever increasing speed. This project is also rich in other scientific opportunities, including the ability to chart the history of star formation in galaxies over cosmic time and with environment, and to better understand their role as gravitational lenses. This application seeks travel support to allow these important subsidiary science programs, both of which involve international collaborations, to proceed effectively.
