    Science Goals

    In the following we give some examples of the science enable by the new capabilities of MUSE: formation and evolution of galaxies, stellar population in nearby galaxies, supermassive black holes, young stars and planets and small bodies. It encompasses many different objects (…)

    Stars and Resolved Stellar Populations

    MUSE will contribute to the understanding of a number of areas which are the subject of much current research through the observations of marginally resolved stellar groups and aggregates.
    MUSE will be an amazing tool for the study of large-scale jets in young stellar objects. Its combination (…)

    Formation and evolution of Galaxies

    The main target of the MUSE surveys is to find and study the building blocks of the local, normal galaxies such as our Milky Way, at an epoch when the universe was typically 1 Gyr old. The observation of such objects will be of great value to clarify the way galaxies form. In the commonly (…)

    Solar System

    The MUSE narrow field mode with its very high spatial resolution is ideally suited to the spatially resolved spectroscopy of solar system bodies. While much more detail can obviously be obtained by space probes, one visit is not the whole story given the significant evolution with time of (…)


    Nearby Galaxies

    MUSE will make significant contributions to our understanding of nearby galaxies, making use of both the high-resolution mode, to resolve the complex structures of galaxy nuclei, measure black-hole masses, and perform crowded-field spectrophotometry in local objects; and also of the wide-field (…)
