Mapping the Galactic Halo Today and in the Future
Max-Planck-Institut für Astrophysik,
Presently data from several ongoing surveys, and in particular from the Spaghetti Project Survey have allowed us to map substructure in the halo associated to multiple passages of the Sagittarius dwarf. Future astrometric missions such as GAIA will be able to recover truly ancient accretion, thus providing us with the formation history of the Milky Way.
