Introduction: European Network -The Formation and Evolution of Galaxies
A network funded by the Training
and Mobility of Researchers Programme of the European Comission
It has recently become possible to identify galaxies so distant that they are seen when only a fraction as old as nearby systems. The evolution of the Universe can be studied directly through observation of such galaxies, and this has been a major motivation for the new generation of large ground-based telescopes as well as for satellite observatories like the Hubble Space Telescope and ISO. This coherent programme will study distant galaxies at optical, infrared, and radio frequencies. In addition it will be coupled to theoretical work on protogalactic collapse, on galaxy evolution, and on the interaction of galaxies with their environment. Our goal is to understand how galaxies formed and how the Universe has evolved over the last 90 percent of its history.
This is a small part of the deepest look into the Universe so far, from the so-called Deep Field taken with the Hubble Space Telescope.
