Observing Run: Comet ISON – Dr. Carey Lisse

Please be patient while video loads:


Join in on rebroadcast from October 26, 2013 of a rare look into science in the making at the W. M. Keck Observatory, home of the largest and most scientifically productive telescopes on Earth.

In the Keck II remote observing room, Dr. Carey Lisse, head of NASA's Comet ISON observation programs, is joined by astronomers Neil Dello Russo, Anita Cochran, Ron Vervack and Hideyo Kawakita. Our own Andrew Cooper hosts the lively discussion all about ISON and other famous comets, and offers a peek at the latest data being gathered from the mighty Keck II telescope.

Here on Keck 2 the 1st of our 2 primary fields has just risen above the horizon, so we are busily collecting photons from distant galaxies.
Howdy! This is @rhaegal on Keck 2 with grad student Intae, searching for the most distant galaxies with deep spectroscopy on DEIMOS.
