Press Release: "Life Around Our Active Star" by the University of Hawaii
"Life Around Our Active Star"
By Dr. Tom Schad
Friday, April 24th at 9:30 PM PDT
Institute for Astronomy - U. Hawaii Astronomy Amphitheater:
Over the centuries, humanity has tuned its existence to Earth's seasons, created by our yearly travel around the Sun. At the dawn of the Machine Age, however, the seasons of the Sun itself proved influential to our progressing world. In this talk, we will explore the cycles of solar activity, and study the impact of these cycles throughout the heliosphere and on our modern society. We will learn of the interplay of new and old methods for the study of solar epochs, and anticipate the great advances of the Senator Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) currently being built on Haleakala.
