Our Next Chapter Meeting  Wednesday September 11, 2019

 

Equipment and Methods for Finding Exo-Planets

 

Over the last 25 years astronomers have discovered thousands of planets orbiting other stars (Exo-Planets).  These new worlds are very different from the planets in our solar system.  This presentation will cover the 4 main methods, and the large equipment required to discover these other worlds. Some focus will be on the Kepler space mission and the next generation of space-based planet hunters.

 

Presenter:  Timothy Banks works for Nielsen as a Data Scientist in Chicago.  Part of his role involves university engagement, leading to joint research projects with the National University of Singapore, Victoria University of Wellington, NZ, the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, and Nanyang Technological University on a variety of topics, ranging from exoplanets to processing of satellite imagery.  Tim trained as an astronomer in NZ, and worked for that country's National Observatory. The meeting will start at 6:30 pm and end by 9:00 pm. Cost of the meeting (including your choice of supper) is $25 for members, $30 for non-members, and $10 for students (cash or check).  One (1) PDH will be available for those registered PEs attending.
