You Can Map the Milky Way!

December 6 @ 6:00 PM CST

Dr. Kathryn Williamson

How do we figure out the shape of our galaxy if we’re stuck inside of it? The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy, right? How do you know? Most light from the far reaches of the galaxy is blocked from ever reaching us by interstellar dust clouds. In this interactive presentation, we will use a radio telescope on the Skynet Robotic Telescope Network and analyze data to “tune in” to hydrogen signals from beyond the clouds. Together, we can map the Milky Way!
