halo shape, Nature

Zolotov and I discussed how the Milky Way halo's shape is measured, with the configuration and velocity-space distribution of stars. She can repeat these measurements in a simulated Milky Way and see if the measurements match the truth.

We made it into the editorial page and news pages of Nature today, here, here, and here.

  1. I noticed this, and the two arXiv posts. Congratulations. That movie thing is really wild.
