“The Evolution of the Astronomical Observatory” with Tim Brothers
September 28, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Today’s modern optical observatory is highly technical and automated. How did we get to the point where the educational observatory leverages A.I. to solve our oldest scientific problems… and is it a good idea?
Tim Brothers is the observatory manager of MIT’s Wallace Astrophysical Observatory and a technical instructor in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences. In addition to education and outreach, he is the Vice President of the newly formed Massachusetts Chapter of the International Dark-Sky Association.
