Carnegie Observatories Lecture Series - Las Campanas Observatory: A Southern Window on the Universe
For 45 years, the Las Campanas Observatory of the Carnegie Institution for Science has provided a superlative window in the Southern Hemisphere for exploring the wonders of our Universe. Located in the Andes foothills of northern Chile, its telescopes and instruments have yielded many breakthrough discoveries. Mark Phillips, director of the Las Campanas Observatory, gives a personal account of the spectacular growth of astronomical research in this unique land of high mountains and dry deserts, while also looking ahead to the Observatorys bright future of scientific discovery. The evenings program will begin with a brief musical performance by students from the Colburn School, followed by the lecture.
