||4-meter Multi Object Spectroscopic Telescope
||Constrained Local UniversE Simulations; the observed distribution of nearby galaxies is used to construct the initial conditions for these simulations
||The mission will provide the first sky survey of intermediate x-ray energies up to 10 keV with high resolution.
||GALactic Open Cluster Study; German-Russian collaboration supported by DFG; investigation of the population of open clusters in the Solar neighbourhood
||The Galaxy Halos, Outer disks, Substructure, Thick disks and Star clusters survey is a survey of resolved stellar populations in the outskirts of nearby spirals using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).
||The Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer is a second generation instrument in development for the Very Large Telescope (VLT).
||The RAdial Velocity Experiment is a survey to measure the radial velocities, metallicities and abundance ratios for up to 1 mill. stars
||The Sloan Digital Sky Survey provides detailed optical images of more than 1/4 of the sky, and a 3D map of about 1 mill. galaxies and quasars.
||VIRUS will be a giant integral-field unit spectrograph for the optical light
||XMM Survey Science Center at AIP provides the source detection software for the pipe-line processing of the XMM EPIC data.
