SHELS

Leave a Comment

The SHELS (Smithsonian Hectospec Lensing Survey) is a complete galaxy redshift survey covering two fields. The first field, available here, was recently published by astrophysicist Margaret Geller (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics). It includes over 9000 new galaxy redshifts obtained with the Hectospec instrument on the MMT. The two well-separated fields provide an amazing database for future studies of galaxy properties and the large-scale structure of the Universe.
