The Discovery Channel Telescope: Lowell Observatory’s Newest Eye on the Sky

Dr. Jeffrey Hall will be joining us to speak at 5:00p on “The Discovery Channel Telescope: Lowell Observatory’s Newest Eye on the Sky”.

The 4.3-meter Discovery Channel Telescope peers into the Universe nightly from its site near Happy Jack. Owned and operated by Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, the DCT will maintain the research competitiveness of Lowell for decades to come. In this talk, we’ll look at the extraordinary engineering and technology that goes into a modern research telescope and the kinds of science we’re doing with it.
