April Science Cafe: 4/26: Dr. Michael Zemcov (RIT): Measuring the Largest Structures in the Universe with the Smallest Telescopes in Space

The Rochester Science Cafe is pleased to remind you that our April Cafe will be this coming Tuesday, April 26, at 7pm in the Community Room of the Pittsford Plaza Barnes and Noble. The speaker will be Dr. Michael Zemcov, from RIT's School of Physics and Astronomy/Center for Detectors. The talk:
Measuring the Largest Structures in the Universe with the Smallest Telescopes in Space

Observational astrophysics has always been driven by the race to build telescopes with larger and larger apertures. However, in cosmology (which is the study of the universe on the largest scales and most ancient times), telescopes with very small apertures can perform measurements as important as their larger siblings. In this talk, I will give a brief review of modern cosmological measurements and present examples of small, space-based experiments that are providing us unique views of the past, present and future of the universe.


For more on his research, including podcasts, papers and more, you may want to look at his website. In honor of Passover, we'll be providing macaroons in additional to the usual cookies.

Our Spring 2016 series will conclude in May with the following talk:

May 24: Dr. Kara Maki (RIT) -- A Mathematician's Perception on Dry Eye Disease

We'll resume in the Fall with another session of talks, and keep your eyes out for more exciting announcements about some new initiatives this summer.
