I'm starting a new project on dark matter astrophysics in which I have to extract from some data (I will write some below) the surface brightness, to later construct the mass density profiles of de ...
Can anyone tell me where I can download sample rotation curve data for the Milky Way in csv format?
We know that the speed with which the planets go around our sun decreases as a function of the distance they are from the sun. Since stars are not planets, and presumably do not behave like planets, ...
My question is related to world-famous galaxy rotation problem and famous diagrams of speed of stars against the distance from the center of the galaxy where "expected" speeds are decreasing with the ...
