Brief DescriptionUnreduced FITS files. ANU 2.3-m/Wide Field Spectrograph (WiFeS), PI: Rizzuto AC Mr (Macquarie University)
Full DescriptionOur understanding of how stars and planets form is informed by newly born groups of stars. The nearest group to us is the Scorpius-Centaurus association, at a distance of 400 lightyears, which contains the iconic Southern-Cross. We are searching for faint members of this association with WiFeS, looking for Lithium in their atmospheres, which is totally burnt up in older stars like the sun.
