SAURON Team Gets the 2013 Group Achievement Award of the Royal Astronomical Society

On Friday 11 January 2013 the Royal Astronomical Society (UK) awarded the 2013 RAS Group award to the SAURON team. SAURON is an integral field spectrograph with a 33 x 44
arcseconds field of view at the 4.2m William Herschel Telescope. Although it can be used for other astrophysical investigations, the particular
science focus of the team that set up the SAURON project was understanding the evolution of elliptical
galaxies, via detailed observations of samples of nearby examples of these objects.
