Scientific discoveries

The AVO project had planned to do scientific demonstration of new tools and capabilities on an annual basis. This was achieved in with demonstration events in January 2003, 2004 and 2005. The demonstration in January 2004 studied a science case on active galaxies using new additions to the AVO prototype tool. The project discovered more than 40 new examples of massive black holes in the middle of large galaxies. This multiplied the number of such systems know by more than a factor of four. This was a major scientific discover made possible by VO technologies and tools. It resulted in the first published scientific result enabled by VO and hence represents a major achievement for the AVO project and its partner organizations.
