The SMHASH Survey
A major road-block in understanding our Galaxy is in our ability to measure the distances to stars. This project is an international collaboration to use NASA's Spitzer satellite to survey a set of RR Lyrae stars spread around our Galaxy and in satellite galaxies in order to derive very precise distances to them.
- The proposal for this work was approved to collect data in Spitzer's Cycle 10
