Seamless Astronomy Colloquium Series

February 3, 2014

We are happy to announce the creation of a Seamless Astronomy Colloquium Series, which will focus on the intersection of modern astrophysical research, data visualization, software development, big science data repositories, and professional development for scientists. Our inaugural colloquia was 10 February 2014 by Alyssa Goodman, entitled: "Linking Visualization & Understanding in Astronomy." We plan on holding colloquia on a semester or perhaps...

Seamless Colloquium: Linking Visualization & Understanding in Astronomy

Registration Closed2:00pm

Location: 

Phillips Auditorium, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, 60 Garden Street

In 1610, when Galileo pointed his small telescope at Jupiter, he drew sketches to record what he saw. After just a few nights of observing, he understood his sketches to be showing moons orbiting Jupiter. It was the visualization of Galileo’s observations that led to his understanding of a clearly Sun-centered solar system, and to the revolution this understanding then caused. Similar stories can be found throughout the history of Astronomy, but visualization has never been so essential as it is today, when we find ourselves blessed with a larger wealth and diversity of data, per...
