Uncharted Space: Searching the Cosmos for Exoplanets
December 14 at 10:00 a.m.
Presented by the Hispanic & Latino Network Employee Resource Group
What weird and wonderful planets orbit the stars that shine brightly in our night sky? Visit Lincoln Laboratory to hear special guest Natalia Guerrero from MIT's Kavli Institute as she explains how space scientists find exoplanets in the vast universe. Participants will test how impact craters form on different surfaces and will discuss a variety of ways to perceive our constellations. Demonstrations will help students:
- Learn about gravitational fields
- Launch your own balloon rocket
- Understand the physics of a gyroscope
- Discover how to use lasers to communicate through space
