Simulations of HST Observations of Globular Clusters

  • John N. Bahcall (a1) and Donald P. Schneider (a1)

Extract

The high angular resolution of the Hubble Space Telescope will provide opportunities for many fundamental observations of globular clusters, most of which have been extensively discussed in the literature. We have therefore chosen to devote our time (and pages) to a presentation of what HST observations may reveal about some aspects of galactic globular clusters. To avoid infringing upon programs that others may propose, we have limited ourselves to simulations of observations that are part of our Guaranteed Time Observations. [The complete catalog of GTO observations has published by the Space Telescope Science Institute and is available upon request.]
