Astronomy on Tap Copenhagen: Ground-based telescopes

April 29, 2023 @ 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM CEST

We have heard a lot about how incredible space telescopes are, but the huge telescopes we have down on earth are also wonders of engineering. In this month edition of Astronomy on Tap we will hear about two of the most revolutionary ground-based telescopes.
Our speakers are:
Johan Fynbo : Right now there is a lot of fuzz about the James Webb Space Telescope. I will talk about observatories on the ground both historically and at the present day.
Christa Gall : The Vera C. Rubin Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) is a 10 year wide-field survey of half the sky. The telescope is located on Cerro Pachón in Chile. LSST will enable revolutionary scientific research and important discoveries in many fields of astrophysics and cosmology.
18:30: Doors open to the STARDUST Room
19:00: Johan Fynbo – Ground telescopes : Past and Present
19:30: Quiz and break
20:00: Christa Gall – LSST : The largest camera constructed
Quiz! Join the half time quiz for a chance to win some drinks vouchers and test your knowledge.
Astronomy on Tap is a (FREE) series of events aimed at making the latest research in astronomy and space accessible to the public, with fun talks given in simple ENGLISH, and quiz, and plenty of time for mingling between our speakers and guests.
