June
Using nature to observe the Universe in X-rays
Northamptonshire Natural History Society
16 Castilian Terrace, Northampton NN1 1LD
Mon Jun 25, 2018
Time: 7 30 pm
Price: Free
A talk by Prof. Paul O'Brien of Leicester University Using nature to observe the Universe in X-rays Nature has solved the problem of how to observe in different ways. Some living creatures use narrow fields of view, while others observe over a very large area. Astronomers also want to vary the way we look to suit the situation. I will describe how we have adapted the vision system of a Lobster to observe the Universe in X-rays, and how the technology is being used in new space missions designed to observe objects from planets to the most distant stars. In particular, I will show how the new Lobster X-ray telescope system will enable us to monitor the violent, evolving Universe.
