Lecture: New Discoveries from the HETDEX Project
Friday, November 5, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
One of the biggest mysteries of astronomy in the 21st century is Dark Energy, a mysterious force that causes galaxies to speed away from each other. There are many exciting astronomy projects that are currently trying to understand the true nature of this mysterious force. Dr. John Feldmeier will discuss the most recent discoveries from the HETDEX project, which is an international Dark Energy astronomical survey, and highlight some work done by YSU undergraduate students on the project.
Lecture is Friday, November 5 at 8:00pm. Lecture is free and open to the public (donations are always appreciated). For more information and safety protocols, visit their website or call 330-941-1370.
