The effect of pre-impact spin on the Moon-forming collision

no code implementations6 Jul 2020 Sergio Ruiz-Bonilla, Vincent R. Eke, Jacob A. Kegerreis, Richard J. Massey, Luis F. A. Teodoro

It is roughly the mass of the Moon, contains $\sim1\%$ iron like the Moon, and has its internal composition resolved for the first time.

Galaxy structure with strong gravitational lensing: decomposing the internal mass distribution of massive elliptical galaxies

no code implementations23 Jan 2019 James. W. Nightingale, Richard J. Massey, David R. Harvey, Andrew P. Cooper, Amy Etherington, Sut-Ieng Tam, Richard G. Hayes

We investigate how strong gravitational lensing can test contemporary models of massive elliptical (ME) galaxy formation, by combining a traditional decomposition of their visible stellar distribution with a lensing analysis of their mass distribution.
