Scientific feasibility

Scientific feasibility

  • unique targets for VSOP-2 (θbeam〜100 μas)

    Three major goals

  • galactic rotation and rotation deviation

  • dynamics of the Milky Way system

  • diagnosing interior of star burst activity

    Trial: annual parallax (π~20μas)


Solving fundamental parameters of galactic kinematics

Solving fundamental parameters of galactic kinematics

Free parameters in galactic kinematics (Np = 9)

  • dynamical center (Xg, Yg, Zg): scaled by distance D

  • secular motion (Vxg, Vyg, Vzg) : scaled by distance D

  • rotation axis (ig, PAyg) : linked with D

  • rotation parameter (Vrot (r=rg)) : linked with D

    Observables from maser sources (3 × Nmaser)

  • 3D velocity vector (μx, μy, Vz)(x, y)

    Freedom of best-fitting: Nf = 3 × Nmaser- Np >> 1

    Estimation of location along line-of-sight


Galactic rotation of lmc

    • 30°.7±1°.1 (Nikoraev et al. 2004)

    • 34°.7±6°.2 (van der Marel & Cioni 2001), 22°±6° (Kim et al. 1998)

  • Rotation axis position angle: varying with radius

    • 52°ー77° (e.g., Caldwell1986)

  • Rotation curve: depending on population

  • LMC gravitationally bound

    by the Milky Way?

    • Dependent on the Milky Way

      rotation velocity

      (V0~230 km/s or 250 km/s?)

    • LMC: gas rich galaxy

      should be less interacted

      with the Milky Way
