Reconstructing the emergence of the Milky Way’s stellar population with Gaia, SDSS-V and JWST

Project description

Reconstructing the origin and evolution of the Milky Way

The universe is made up of trillions of galaxies. Observing other galaxies provides important insight into the origin and evolution of the universe, but our own Milky Way is the only one close enough to yield voluminous data sets from observational experiments. Three recent observational launches will provide unparalleled technological precision and accuracy. The EU-funded EMERGE project plans to make excellent use of the wealth of data they will be sending home about the stars and compact stellar remnants of our galaxy to build a galactic chemical evolution model. The observationally based reconstruction of the galaxy’s stellar formation history and chemical evolution will reveal its progenitors and their behaviours over time.
