Contributing to the VFTS meeting

For three days in June (20-23, 2022) a – broader – meeting of the VFTS project took place in Heidelberg. Stephan de Wit represented the ASSESS project by contributing with the talk: ” ASSESSing Red Supergiants, in the Local Group … and beyond!”.

After a short presentation of the whole project he went on to describe what he has been working on, which is all about identifying Red Supergiants and fitting their spectra to get the best estimates of their physical properties (such as temperature, extinction). The particular meeting was a great opportunity to explain in detail all issues arising form this process and received valuable feedback.
