Road Show

If anyone is interested. I'll be giving a talk for the Orange County Astronomers on Friday, February 8th @ 7:30 p.m. What's on tap for the talk?

"In honor of its sixty year anniversary, Scott Kardel of Palomar Observatory will outline the future of this astronomical workhorse on the mountain.

In this era of large and giant telescopes the old "Big Eye" on Palomar continues to be used nightly. Astronomers continue to build new and innovative instruments for the Hale, keeping it in the forefront of modern astronomy. New instruments that have just arrived and will soon be coming will bring advances in adaptive optics, new exoplanet discoveries, and allow the Hale to detect and map emission from the intergalactic medium."
