Hi. I'm just sending this message to have it conveniently on the
archive with an obvious "Subject:" header. I think I've already
mentioned these two projects (or themes) which are linked to local
observational facilities:

(1) polarisation of radio-galaxies

Ryszard Wielebiñski of Bonn suggested that a good way
to use the radio telescope here would be to observe galaxies at
different frequencies, so with different amounts of Faraday
rotation of polarised light, so that the polarisation could be

(2) galaxy formation modelling in preparation for future infrared
satellite data

Ryszard Szczerba said something about NCAC being involved in
an infrared satellite project (I think I got the name wrong -
Ryszard, do you have a link to the web site of the project?),
so if someone does some galaxy formation work in preparation for
this, there would be a good chance of getting good observational
constraints, and maybe even falsifying some models, and having
to generate new ones, which is the exciting part of science :).
