Caltech Lecture re: the Earliest Galaxies

Hey friends, not sure if I can make this event yet...but it looks super groovy, so you should go!  Note that Caltech lecture seating is first come, first served. 

Richard S. Ellis - Let There Be Light: Finding the Earliest Galaxies

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Location: Beckman Auditorium

Following the initial glow that emerged from the hot Big Bang, the Universe entered a period astronomers call the `Dark Ages', when clouds of hydrogen assembled under gravity and eventually collapsed to ignite as the first stellar systems. Can powerful telescopes look back and witness such a remarkable event? Deep imaging with the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, coupled with ambitious surveys undertaken with the Keck telescopes is providing our first exciting glimpse of this early period of cosmic history.  Professor Ellis will address the challenges of this fundamental quest for the origin of galaxies, as well as the future prospects with the Thirty Meter Telescope and the James Webb Space Telescope.

Presented by: Caltech Committee on Institute Programs

    okay. I'll print a paper that says "QPDG" and tape it to an armrest on a aisle seat. Not sure how early I'll be though.

    So.. Like Vanessa asked.. Is anyone bringing the sign..? I would do it but am not sure if I will reach 20 min early..Anyone?

    Hey friends. I won't be able to attend this meetup. If someone would take upon the onerous burden of rocking a QPDG sign and grabbing an appropriate number of seats, I would be very thankful. Thanks!
