Sunday Night: "Invisible Light with ALMA" @ Main Yurt | Circleville | West Virginia | United States

Dr. Sabrina Stierwalt, Astronomy Research Associate, University of Virginia/NRAO

ALMA is a radio interferometer high in the Chilean desert. It’s revolutionary design and resulting unprecedented sensitivity are unlocking new areas of astronomy that were previously uncharted. Sabrina will discuss how results from ALMA are changing what we know about galaxy evolution and show some of the impressive engineering feats associated with ALMA’s construction at 5,000 meters above sea level.
