Science Synergies: NASA Space Missions and the W. M. Keck Observatory
The dynamic duo of NASA’s space missions and Keck Observatory has led to some of the most exciting astronomy results in recent history.
Keck Observatory is a leader in the study of planets around other stars, both discovering them with precise Doppler measurements and measuring their properties with high resolution spectroscopy and adaptive optics imaging. Keck plays a leading role in verifying and characterizing Earth-size planets found by NASA space missions.
Join us Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea for an illuminating Astronomy Talk by Dr. Charles Beichman of the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute as he shares how Keck Observatory and NASA’s Space Missions reveal different parts of the astronomical landscape.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., talk begins at 7:00 p.m.
These lectures are supported by Rob and Terry Ryan and Keck Observatory’s Rising Stars Fund.
