Join us to mark our second year anniversary celebrating women in science. We’ll hear from UCSB graduate student Isabel Lipartito about imaging extra-solar planets, and from LCO data analyst Monica Turner about satellites and other things launched into space. We will also cover the latest astronomy in the news, and will have astronomy posters and postcards as well as some of our cool Astronomy on Tap beer glasses for you. This event only: we will be raffling a few “Women of NASA” Lego sets! Join our event on Facebook for up to date details.
The event is hosted by Las Cumbres Observatory (LCO).
This month’s speakers are Isabel Lipartito from UC Santa Barbara and Monica Turner from LCO. Isabel is a National Science Foundation Fellow graduate student researcher in astrophysics at UCSB, working on revolutionary imaging technology for astronomy. Monica received her PhD in Astrophysics from the Leiden Observatory and completed post-doctoral research at MIT. She is now the Orbital Science Data Analyst at LCO.
The event will be hosted by Charlotte Mason and Sally Shaw. Charlotte is an astrophysics graduate student at UCSB, where she studies the first galaxies in the most distant Universe. She presented at the June 2016 Astronomy on Tap Santa Barbara and has hosted several of our events. Dr. Sally Shaw is a high energy astroparticle physicist. She received her PhD from University College London and is now a post-doctoral researcher at UCSB. She works on one of the leading searches in the world for dark matter
