Abstract / Description:The LEGA-C (Large Early Galaxy Census) survey is made possible by the refurbishment of the Very Large Telescope VIsible and Multi Object Spectrograph (VIMOS) instrument and the implementation by ESO of a new generation of large spectroscopic surveys. The goal is to obtain high-quality continuum spectra of thousands of galaxies with redshifts up to z = 1, with which key physical parameters that were previously inaccessible can be measured. These include star formation histories and dynamical masses, which greatly improve our insight into how galaxies form and evolve. This article coincides with the first public data release of fully reduced and calibrated spectra.
