  • Saltbox Tavern and Table 7 Macys Lane Nantucket, MA, 02554 United States (map)

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.
