What is our universe? How large is it? What was the universe like in the past?

 

In the third of the S&E Library’s Synergy Lecture Series, UCSC Astronomy Professor David Koo will discuss the use of telescopes to glimpse the universe’s past as a way to answer these and other intriguing questions. Professor Koo will discuss an experiment called Deep Extragalactic Evolutionary Probe (DEEP) where the Keck Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope are used to survey over 40,000 distant galaxies as they appeared when the universe was young.

 

This project is led by UC Santa Cruz astronomers in collaboration with UC Berkeley, University of Hawaii Manoa, Johns Hopkins University, University of Chicago and the California Institute of Technology.

 

Please join us for an exciting look at this UCSC led cutting-edge research into the history of the universe.
