Maunakea Skies Talk: Cutting Edge Technology and Ancient Mysteries

'Imiloa Astronomy Center, 600 Imiloa Place Hilo

April 21, 2017 @ 7–8 p.m.
Continuing the tradition of keeping Maunakea at the forefront of astronomical research, the W.M. Keck Observatory recently installed a new research instrument called the Keck Cosmic Web Imager. With unparalleled capabilities and extreme sensitivity, this instrument will allow scientists to look at the faintest and most diffuse structures of the Universe, and investigate the pillars of dark matter that caused the formation of the primordial galaxies and galaxy clusters. Learn more about this quest for astronomical knowledge at ‘Imiloa’s Maunakea Skies talk with Dr. Luca Rizzi, Support Astronomer at W.M. Keck Observatory on Friday, April 21 at 7:00 pm.
