Event Description:

Speaker: Michal Simon, Emeritus Professor

Topic: Time Domain Astronomy
The discovery of things that go poof, burst on the scene, or just quietly reveal themselves during the night. Looking For Solar System 2.0 by Studying Extra Solar Debris Disks. Every time astronomers have improved their sensitivity to light from the cosmos, or sharpened the quality of images they record, they have discovered a new aspect of the universe. Advances in instrumentation are now allowing, or will soon allow, astronomers to observe the sky nearly continuously with time sensitivity from a thousandth of a second to, remarkably, a century.
