Event

Lecture Series: Alien Sunsets, Spotted Stars, and NESSI in New Mexico
Exciting new discoveries are taking place under New Mexico's Enchanted Skies at the Magdalena Ridge Observatory. Two innovative instruments will be deployed at the observatory.  The first is the New Mexico Tech Extrasolar Spectroscopic Survey Instrument (NESSI), a spectrometer designed to examine the atmospheres of newly discovered exoplanets found throughout the galaxy.  The second is an optical interferometric array, an instrument that is the equivalent of the VLA but working at optical and infrared wavelengthsenabling astronomers to see details with a resolution of 100X that of the Hubble Space Telescope.  Together these new instruments will help shape our understanding of astronomy.

Michelle Creech-Eakman received her PhD in Physics with a concentration in Astrophysics from the University of Denver in 1997.  She worked at Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Lab on infrared instrumentation and interferometry, before joining the faculty at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NM Tech) in 2003. She is the Principal Investigator on the New Mexico Tech Extrasolar Spectroscopic Survey Instrument (NESSI) and Project Scientist of the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer.
