Live From Keck: Hunt for the Cosmic Dark Ages

Live From Keck: Hunt for the Cosmic Dark Ages

Saturday December 07, 2013
12:00 am - 01:00 am


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. 


Caltech's Dr. Richard Ellis and his team of astronomers will spend two nights on Keck I with the instrument MOSFIRE attempting to look back into the Cosmic Dark Ages and quantify the degree to which hydrogen is being burnt off by the ultraviolet light from young galaxies.
