    OKC researchers secure HST time in Cycle 26

    Angela Adamo and Matthew Hayes both had successful medium HST proposals in Cycle 26, the most oversubscribed cycle in the history of HST. Angela's observations will explore how dense, young clusters of stars interact with their surroundings. Matthew's observations will look for gas that is thought to envelope galaxies and fuel their future generations of stars.
