Aug 08, 2007     Email"> PrintText Size

A research team led by Prof. JING Yipeng from the CAS Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SHAO) recently got a shot in the arm. Its research project "large-scale structures in the universe and the formation and evolution of galaxies," has won the support from the National Basic Research Program (dubbed "973" Program).

With the support from the Ministry of Science and Technology, the researchers will probe, in the future five years (2007-2001), into key scientific issues concerning the formation and evolution of large-scale structures in universe and the structures and evolution of the Milky Way on the basis of their previous achievements of interdisciplinary studies and by taking advantages of its observation advantages at the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope.

Coordinated by SHAO, the consortium is making up of more than 60 scientists from eight institutes and universities across the country. Focusing on large-scale structure in the universe, its research will address six major issues, namely, dark matter energy and cosmological parameters, theories and numerical simulations of the universe formation, studies of the Milky Way and its neighboring galaxies, high-redshift observation of the universe, activities of galaxies and formation of supper-massive black holes, and stellar formation and evolution of galaxies.

CAS Institutes

There are 124 Institutions directly under the CAS by the end of 2012, with 104 research institutes, five universities & supporting organizations, 12 management organizations that consist of the headquarters and branches, and three other units. Moreover, there are 25 legal entities affiliated and 22 CAS invested holding enterprises...
