We present the Red MSX Source survey, the largest statistically selected catalog of young massive protostars and H II regions to date. We outline the construction of the catalog using mid- andExpand
The RMS survey - 6 cm continuum VLA observations towards candidate massive YSOs in the northern hemisphere
Context. The Red MSX Source (RMS) survey is an ongoing multi-wavelength observational programme designed to return a large, well-selected sample of massive young stellar objects (MYSOs). We haveExpand
A spectroscopic survey of Herbig Ae/Be stars with X-shooter – I. Stellar parameters and accretion rates
Herbig Ae/Be stars (HAeBes) span a key mass range that links low- and high-mass stars, and thus provide an ideal window from which to explore their formation. This paper presents Very LargeExpand
The population of the Galactic plane as seen by MSX
The combination of mid-infrared data from the MSX satellite mission and ground-based near-infrared photometry is used to characterize the properties of the mid-infrared population of the GalacticExpand
A CH3CN and HCO+ survey towards southern methanol masers associated with star formation
We present the initial results of a 3-mm spectral-line survey towards 83 methanol maser-selected massive star-forming regions. Here, we report observations of the J=5-4 and 6-5 rotational transitionsExpand
The RMS Survey: Ammonia and water maser analysis of massive star forming regions. ⋆
The Red MSX Source (RMS) survey has identified a sample of∼1200 massive young stellar objects (MYSOs), compact and ultra compact Hii regions from a sample of∼2000 MSX and 2MASS colour selectedExpand
Resolved 24.5 micron emission from massive young stellar objects
Context. Massive young stellar objects (MYSO) are surrounded by massive dusty envelopes, whose physical structure and geometry are determined by the star formation process. Aims. Our principal aim isExpand
Gaia DR2 study of Herbig Ae/Be stars
Aims. We use Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) to place 252 Herbig Ae/Be stars in the Hertzsprung–Russell diagram and investigate their characteristics and properties. Methods. For all known Herbig Ae/BeExpand
The Red MSX Source survey: critical tests of accretion models for the formation of massive stars
There is currently no accepted theoretical framework for the formation of the most massive stars, and the manner in which protostars continue to accrete and grow in mass beyond ∼10 M⊙ is still aExpand
On the binarity of Herbig Ae/Be stars
We present high-resolution spectro-astrometry of a sample of 28 Herbig Ae/Be and three F-type pre-main-sequence stars. The spectro-astrometry, which is essentially the study of unresolved features inExpand
