FFG funding awarded


Our project JetPro* has been awarded full funding from the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) in the framework of the 12th Austrian Space Applications Programme (ASAP). In the following years we will have the opportunity to study the influence of protostellar ejecta during the star-formation process on determining the final mass of forming stars but also shape their environment. An important goal of our project is to prepare for the upcoming JWST mission in which ESA is a partner, developing the MIRI and NIRSpec instruments. The project will build on the data archive of the recent ESA/Herschel mission, along with data from NASA/Spitzer and complementary data from ground-based facilities such as ALMA. A project webpage is under development and links will soon be provided to follow the development of the project.
