On Supernovae, and Not Touching Telescopes!

Our featured presentation will be given by Dr. Chris D’Andrea, from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania. Chris will give a brief overview of supernovae and cosmology, related too his research as an astrophysicist at the University of Pennsylvania.  He’ll talk about what they are and the ways in which they’re so important.  He will also talk about how little contact an astrophysicist typically has with actual telescopes, and what scientists mean when they talk about ‘observing’.  ; We’ll see pictures he has taken on his observing trips to Chile and Hawaii over the past decade.
 
Our meetings begin at 7:30 pm in the usual room at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church, 411 Susquehanna Rd., Ambler, 19002. Look for the yellow and black sign.
