The launch of the long-awaited TESS exoplanet hunter will take place either the day before, or the day of this event. We will have Professor Ian Crossfield give us an overview of the TESS satellite and the exciting findings we expect from the mission. Then, we will hear from Dr. Grant Tremblay about the most massive black holes in the universe (did you know that they can sing??).
We’ll accompany the event with the usual astronews and games with prizes. Event is free of charge. Must be 21 years or older.
Where: The Burren (247 Elm St, Somerville, MA 02144)
When: April 17, 6h00 – 8h00pm
