Presented by Moiya McTier, Columbia University. Large telescope facilities cost billions in both time and money to construct and maintain, so why do we have so many of them? In this talk, Moiya will tell you what it is about different telescopes that make them better or worse suited for different areas of research.
Lecture is free and open to the public (donations are always appreciated). No reservations are needed – doors open 30 minutes prior to lecture time. First come, first seated!
