Join us for a rare look into an observing run at the W. M. Keck Observatory, home of the two largest and most scientifically productive telescopes on Earth.
Both of the mighty 10-meter Keck Observatory telescopes will be steered by UCLA's Andrea Ghez and her team of observers from the UCLA Galactic Center Group for two nights to study the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. They will be studying an enigmatic object named G2, setting up a test for Einstein's General Relativity and gathering more data on what they describe as The Paradox of Youth: young objects paradoxically developing around the black hole.
