Millions of SMC stars have been imaged in the infrared thanks to the VMC, providing an unparalleled view almost unaffected by dust extinction," according to (http://www.
Created with operational optimization in mind, the RT60 Spray Plus solution improves the effectiveness of water when used for dust control by allowing larger water particles to capture smaller dust particles, reaching Dust Extinction Moisture (DEM) levels faster.

The aim of the project is to study age and metallicity gradients and dust extinction in spiral galaxies in clusters and compare the results with what has been found for field galaxies.
This correlation of dust extinction with the brightest regions allows spirals to appear both transparent (between the arms) and optically thick (within the arms).
