VIRTUAL EVENT: Streaming | Meet an Astronomer | Kyler Kuehn at 2pm Pacific with Lowell Observatory
*The event has already taken place on this date: Tue, 04/28/2020
Lowell Observatory’s Deputy Director for Technology, Dr. Kyler Kuehn, has spent more than a dozen years building and improving astronomical instruments in order to give astronomers the best possible “eyes” for observing the heavens. Dr. Kuehn will describe some of the technologies that he has helped to develop, from enormous digital cameras made of dozens of charge-coupled devices, to robotic “Starbugs” that precisely position hundreds of optical fibers simultaneously, to microscopic devices etched on silicon wafers that block out the emission from Earth’s atmosphere and give astronomers a pristine view of distant stars and galaxies. You can find all of our Live-Streams and more on our YouTube channel!
