Monday, February 11th is the second installment in our 2019 Science Pub series hosted by The Linda Loring Nature Foundation (LLNF). Rodolfo Montez Jr., PhD will give a talk titled, Revealing the Unseen Universe: 20 years of X-ray vision with the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
From blackholes to interacting galaxies, the universe is teeming with hot plasma that can only be seen from space with X-ray satellite observatories. Since 1999, NASA’s flagship X-ray mission the Chandra X-ray Observatory has been studying the cosmos to reveal its secrets. I will present an array of astronomical images and the stories they tell us about the universe.
