Astronomy in Antarctica

Location: 'Imiloa Astronomy Center

Join Dr. Walter Gear for an extraordinary presentation on “Astronomy in Antarctica” at ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center’s next Maunakea Skies program, Friday, June 19, 2015 at 7 p.m.
Antarctica is the coldest, driest, windiest continent on earth. While inhospitable for humans and most animals, it is an excellent site for astronomy, indeed the best in the world for some types of observations.
Dr. Gear will review the geography and properties of Antarctica before describing his own experiences in reaching and spending time at the South Pole, and explain some of the world-leading astronomical results that have been obtained there.
