Astronomy Lecture Series: Building the Universe, Piece by Piece
Kane 120

Julianne Dalcanton

We are no longer taking online registrations for this lecture. As a courtesy, we offer standby seating on a space-available basis beginning 15 minutes prior to the lecture's start time.

Part of The Big Bang & Beyond: Four Excursions to the Edge of Time and Space.

UW professor Julianne Dalcanton has led several teams of researchers who have combined the extraordinary images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope with data from the ground to investigate how galaxies like ours formed, evolved, and produced new stars. In this lecture, Dalcanton will highlight the unique role that Hubble has played in shaping our understanding of galaxies and stars as she illuminates the complex forces that have shaped the universe we see around us. She will also talk about the future of space exploration and how it will shape future discoveries about the universe.

When: Wed. November 18, 2015; 7:30 p.m.
Where: Kane Hall
Room 120
UW Campus
Cost: Free, but advance registration is required.

About the speaker: UW professor Julianne Dalcanton’s research focus is on the area of galaxy formation and evolution. Dalcanton has led the ACS Nearby Galaxy Survey Treasury program on the Hubble Space Telescope and is a Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) astronomer. In 1999, while sifting through test run data from the SDSS, she discovered the comet C/1999 F2, which was subsequently named after her. Professor Dalcanton is also a contributor to the physics blog Cosmic Variance.
