project and current events
The Sloan Extension for Galactic Understanding and Exploration
mined the stellar content of the Milky Way
in order to create a detailed 3-dimensional map of the Galaxy.
SEGUE ultimately obtained spectra of 240,000 stars
in the disk and spheroid, revealing the age,
composition and phase space distribution of stars within the various Galactic
components. These stellar excavations provide essential clues for
understanding the structure, formation and evolution of our Galaxy.
