A public seminar on ESO and Cerro Paranal

Leave a comment

After attending the “Stellar Death” conference in Santa Barbara-California (I will report about it in a forthcoming post), I am now kind of relaxing in north-eastern Italy (I will report on this as well, lots of interesting stuff). Tomorrow evening, I will be giving a public seminar on ESO and the Cerro Paranal Observatory. You can find more details here.

Besides showing lots of images, I will also perform some experiment, to illustrate the functioning of a spectrograph and the Doppler Effect. Also, I will have a live video connection with the control room of the Very Large Telescope.

If you are around, come and see me.

Cheers!
