Overview

NASA experts will discuss how we use non-visible light to explore the universe. Our focus will be on infrared astronomy and the upcoming ASTHROS mission, a balloon-based telescope that will study star-forming regions in the Milky Way galaxy in far-infrared light. JPL education specialist Brandon Rodriguez will be joined by mission engineer Jose Siles for a presentation about how NASA is using infrared light to reveal the hidden universe around us.

The live broadcast will also include a Q&A for registered participants.

    The Hunt for Dark Matter in the Universe: New Experiments

    Wed at 07:00 PM
    Online   Open to Public

    Astronomers today understand that the universe is full of a mysterious substance they call “dark matter” (because it doesn’t give off any light or other radiation we can detect.) Dr. Shutt will discuss the motivation behind the multi-decade, world-wide effort to test the idea that dark matter is in the form of particles as small as a neutrino but as heavy as an atom. He will describe the experiment he is involved with, that uses 7 tons of liquefied Xenon to measure ... more
