Our virtual series, CU at Home: Clemson Family Conversations, continues this month with two very special guests: Dr. Kenneth Sembach, Director of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), and Dr. Sean Brittain, Clemson Department Chair and Professor of Physics and Astronomy.
Join us to learn more about the science and operations behind the Hubble and some of the exciting science being generated from it. Dr. Sembach will share insight into the next generation of space telescopes and what they are expected to bring to the world. Dr. Brittain will discuss some of his research interests and their connections to Hubble including the initial chemical conditions of planet formation, tracing how gas and dust evolve as stars form, and identifying reliable signposts of ongoing planet formation.
Alumni, parents and students are all invited! RSVP to Jackson@clemsonclub.org with your name, address and class year to receive the Zoom link. Everyone who RSVPs will have an Annual Fund donation made in their name to our Club’s local Scholarship Fund.
