Our two speakers were Caltech astronomers, Dr. Alex Urban and Dr. Eric Bellm talking about their relative fields of study. Alex discussed how we can use telescopes to try to followup and find the locations of LIGO gravitational wave detections.
Eric talked about the rich heritage of the nearby Palomar Observatory, with some of the ground-breaking discoveries people have used it to make in the last century. He also discussed how it scientists are continuing to build new instruments for it to continue doing state-of-the-art science today!
Thank you to everyone who showed up. Come back tomorrow night!
