Dr. Jeff Kissel, Controls Engineer - LIGO Hanford Site Presents: "Third Time's a Charm: A Status Report from The LIGO Detectors During Their 3rd Observation Run

The LIGO detectors, astronomy’s newest way to look at the universe via gravitational waves, have started their next observing run in April 2019. Within just these 6 months of taking data (as of October 1 2019), we’ve tripled the amount of candidate detections — 33 new detections — than were found in the last ~9 months of observational data taken over 2 years. In this talk, I’ll describe why we’ve gathered so many more detections, and give a general status update of the recent past, the present, and the bright future.

The Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium Presents: Silent Sky

Fri. Feb. 21 & Sat. Feb. 22 | Various Showtimes
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University | The Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium

The universe is both the setting and the story in “Silent Sky," by Lauren Gunderson, a play based on the life of astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt and her work with a dedicated group of women, including Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming, at Harvard Observatory in the 19th century. It is a tale of passion, tenacity, sacrifice, luminosity, and working to find our place in the vastness of space. This one hour cutting of the play was created by the Salina Community Theatre and was a nominee for Best Play at the 2019 American Association of Community Theatre AACTfest 2019 in Gettysburg, PA. “To be able to perform this play in this facility is a dream - a palpable fusion of art and science” – Director, Linda Miller
