MOJAVE Outreach Activities (Jan 2009-June 2016)


The members of the MOJAVE collaboration are engaged in numerous outreach activities to present our scientific findings to the astronomy community and general public. A list covering Jan 2009- June 2016 can be found below.

Superluminal Motion

REU student Quinn Looker and Prof. M. Lister have developed an Adobe flash applet that illustrates the concept of superluminal motion in relativistic jets. The user can set the viewing angle, intrinsic speed (Lorentz factor), and distance to the jet, and then watch how a luminous relativistic object effectively chases its own light signals to give the illusion of superluminal transverse motion. You will need a copy of Adobe Flash player to run the simulation.  Click here to run the superluminal motion applet

MOJAVE collaborator Dan Homan of Denison university has developed a Vpython 3-D superluminal motion simulation and accompanying laboratory exercise for an introductory astronomy level course, which can be accessed at http://personal.denison.edu/~homand/superluminal/

We have also produced an annotated movie of the quasar PKS 1222+21 which nicely illustrates a superluminal, accelerating trajectory and is designed for general audiences.
