Recycling and Synthesis in the Cosmos – Dr. Mike Bolte

(February 10, 2008) Dr. Mike Bolte from the University of California Observatories discusses the enormous advances being made in the study of stellar evolution and the genesis of elements from the simple to the complex. Bolte and his collaborators make observations of the oldest stars and star clusters in our Milky Way Galaxy to better understand the first epoch of star formation. Catch a glimpse of the complex methodology and modeling required to measure the chemistry of the cosmos using the Keck telescopes.

LRIS-ADC and DEIMOS are the instruments tonight. Observers are from UCLA and UCSC. Sun set 06:04:00pm rise 06:09:00am
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.
Tonight's schedule is LRIS-ADC on Keck 1 and DEIMOS on Keck 2 for our lucky observers from UCLA and NASA. Sun set 06:04:00pm rise 06:09:00am
