NSAS General Meeting for June; special speaker

5 06 2017

The NSAS General Meeting for June will be on Tuesday the 20th June at 7:30 PM at Regis Hall, Regis Campus, St Ignatius College, Lane Cove.

Our guest speaker is Chris Lidman from AAO, and he’ll be talking about the Dark Energy Survey.

“Ever since the discovery of the accelerating universe 20 years ago, astronomers have been trying to understand the reasons for the acceleration by undertaking ever more detailed surveys of the cosmos. The Dark Energy Survey is the latest, and currently, largest survey of this type.  In this talk, I will provide an overview of the Dark Energy Survey, present some preliminary results, and discuss some of the even larger surveys that astronomers are planning to undertake in the near future.”

As usual, guests are most welcome!
