  • Measuring the Heavens: How to build an instrument to study the cosmos

    Dr. Jonathan Crass
    Tuesday March 31st 2020 - 7:00 pm
    Online Streaming

    We’ve all seen the stunning astronomical images taken using telescopes on the ground and in space. But have you ever wondered just how did we take those images? How did we design instruments capable of doing so? How did we even know what to record and what does that mean for the instruments of the future? Join us as Dr. Jonathan Crass answers these questions and reveals some of the hidden sides of astronomical instrument design, development and operation.

  • Born from the Stars

    Dr. Dan Wilkins
    Tuesday April 7th 2020 - 7:00 pm
    Online Streaming

    The Universe is big – bigger than we can often comprehend. From the extremely large galaxies, stars and planets, to the incredibly small, with intricate structure inside every atom, it has fascinating details on every scale. But where did it all come from and what will it all become in the future? Dr. Dan Wilkins (Stanford University) explains how astronomers can begin to answer some of these fundamental questions and will describe how the Universe came to be.

  • Climbing the Distance Ladder

    Keith Davis Ph.D.
    Tuesday May 26th 2020 - 7:00 pm
    Digital Visualization Theater, Jordan Hall of Science

    Measuring the distance to space borne objects is one of the most difficult tasks in astronomy. The first measurements of the distance to the sun required global adventure, and cost the lives of some of the best astronomers of the day. As late as 1920, astronomers were still debating the size and scale of the Milky Way, and had yet to be sure that other galaxies even existed. Join Davis in the Digital Visualization Theater as he illustrates the challenges of these “simple” measurements.
