Mapping Atomic Hydrogen in the Disk of the Milky Way
Keywords:radio astronomy, 21 cm hydrogen line, Milky Way
AbstractThe VATLY radio telescope has been used to draw the map of atomic hydrogen gas in the disk of the Milky Way. Evidence has been obtained for its differential rotation, its cloud and arm structure and the presence of a dark matter halo.
