GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Carlos Alvarez, W. M. Keck Observatory Astronomer
Together, we have created a science-based artistic rendering of a variety of exoplanet scenes.
Through this project, we bring alien worlds to life, embarking on a deep-space visual journey to extrasolar planets that have either been discovered or characterized using Keck Observatory data.
Serving as an interface between science, technology, and the arts, this project is designed to fulfill the ultimate dream of anyone who has ever wondered what extrasolar planets look like, to imagine ourselves on board a spacecraft flying by a strange world, or standing on an alien moon’s surface looking at a giant planet rising above the horizon.
The Maunakea Skies Astronomy Talk Series is hosted by `Imiloa Astronomy Center. Tickets can be purchased over the phone at (808) 932-8901. Learn more HERE.
