The VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey

Article Open Access

Abstract

The VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey is an ESO Large Programme that has provided multi-epoch spectroscopy of over 1000 stars in the 30 Doradus region in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Armed with this unique dataset the assembled consortium is now addressing a broad range of fundamental questions in both stellar and cluster evolution. Here we give an overview of the survey and the observational strategy, which was designed to be very sensitive to massive binaries. We highlight the power of the multi-epoch approach with the discovery of a massive runaway O-type star which appears to be fleeing the core of the Tarantula region.
